Badass fight. With the way Brown has been looking lately coupled with the layoff for Alves, I've got Brown by dec.

thiago who? he must be new because it cant be the same fighter that challenged for the title a few years back in all seriousness, i will be picking brown all day long. alves is not what he used to be and i think brown has a great style to beat thiago. grind him out until hes dead tired (probably will happen about mid 1st round) then grind some more until he breaks. war brown

PITBULL IS BACK! Yes!! Great fight here should be a war, Brown is so dangerous Thiago will have to be careful but after seeing Mein hurt Brown pretty bad in his last fight I feel confident that Thiago will hurt him and not let him off the hook
Alves KO2 I will take that Av bet all day long

can we just refer to them as "the 1st UFC on Fox Sports 1 card", the 2nd UFC on Fox Sports 1 card", etc.?

Alves has all the tools and then some to win this fight, but Brown is on such a tear! If Alves learned from Brown's last fight, he should know he can out box him and that the body shots are clutch.

I finally think I've found a good match for Brown, Alves is going to be in trouble if he can't take Brown out in the first.

Good fight but a step back for Matt.

Thiago's lost 4 of 6. Brown's on a 5 fight W streak.

Not much else out there though.

Brown is as underrated as Thiago is overrated, I know it's only a matter of time before Brown gets put to sleep but I don't think Thiago is a top 5 guy anymore and just as one dimensional as Brown.

I don't think Brown is "one dimensional" at all. On the contrary actually.

i feel like the sheer strength ddifference will win alves the fight. If he doesn't gas that is. Brown wont catch him in a sub. alves is too compact for that.


hopefully brown can stay on the outside and pick him apart. going to the ground is a mistake along with coming inside and trying to knock him out

Why did we have to change the numbering system just for Fox...should have fist continued to call the Fight Nights.

Gotta think Brown takes this one. Alves hasnt been fighting enough lately. As much as I like Alves, I think you gotta stick with the hot hand on this one!

I dont know how much longer I can pick against Brown. If Alves hadnt been out for a year Id pick him.

This should be a fun fight to watch, Brown is going to bring the pressure no matter who he fights.

This fight has war written all over it. Alves has been out over a year so I don't know if I can pick him but he's definitely the toughest test Brown has had on his current winning streak.
