Oregon's Mike Pierce (13-5 MMA, 5-3 UFC) already has one Brazilian opponent on his mind in Carlos Eduardo Rocha, but that isn't stopping him from taking dead aim at another.
Pierce, who's in South Florida for this week's UFC on FX 3 event, where he takes on Rocha on the evening's preliminary card, said he's spending his spare time trying to track down a local resident.
"I've actually been looking for Thiago Alves," Pierce told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "I hit up all the fast-food joints in the area. I know he lives in town, and I haven't been able to find him." Link
