As of 2 p.m. PST on Tuesday, UFC welterweight contender Thiago Alves said he weighed 183 lbs.

The 25 year-old American Top Team product meets his biggest opportunity on Saturday when he faces reigning champion Georges St. Pierre at UFC 100.

With thirteen pounds to go, Alves looked relieved, and the UFC felt the same.

Thats really good for me, he told MMAWeekly. Usually I get here (at) 188, 189, and Im amazed with myself. 183, Im like whoa. Everybody from the UFC was like, wow, I cant believe it.

Alves said a hellish training camp put him on track.

Ive just been doing what Im supposed to do more professionally, he said. No cheating on myself, things like that. Before, (it was like), ah, Im going to skip one day. It would always catch up with me later on. Id leave everything to the last minute.

The only remaining challenge is the wait until Satur.

Its gonna be a war, he said. Georges St. Pierre, hes the champion, but Im going to knock him out. Its my time.
