Still odd to me that MMA is illegal in NY
Pennsylvania just approved it (in February I think). Maybe NY will follow.

Welcome to the first no contest in the history of a championship bout.

Thaigo Alves will fail to make weight, thus it will be a catch weight

then

Georges will be done for cheating.

They truely deserve one another....all we need now is for a guest Ref

Frank Trigg gets my vote

i assure you, alves will put up a fight. this isn't a dwarf LW moving up to WW this time. this is a giant man who should really be fighting at MW. a humongous juggernaut of a beast who is bigger, stronger, sick takedown defense, great ground skills and much better striking. you will see a fight.
hughes was able to take him down and gsp has better td's at this stage in there careers... Alves hands are overrated as well kos was hanging with the striking on 2 weeeks notice... GSP has the advantage in all areas except maybe ko power.

GSP better hope he doesn't catch one of those knees or he'll be a little grease spot on the mat. Make that a BIG grease spot.
