"At this point, especially after UFC 151 was canceled, I'll fight anyone. I was hoping to fight later this year, but since UFC canceled an event I guess I'll only fight in January now. If it works out, in Brazil. It would be great to shut (Siyar) up, but I fight whoever Joe Silva pairs me up with. I have to fight someone. He's nothing compared to the level of competition I'm used to. I'm fighting in the UFC for almost seven years and I have never had an easy fight. He's very cocky and I love fighting people who talk too much. It motivates me and brings out my best. I guess... No, I know he got pretty lucky against Paulo Thiago. If they fought again it would be totally different. I guess Paulo Thiago lost a lot of weight for that fight and couldn't rehydrate correctly, so when he got punched in the heat, Thiago went down. And when your brain is dehydrated, any punch that is landed on your head can turn you off."
Siyar put all UFC welterweights on notice, proving he can turn anyone's lights out with the striking skills he sharpened while training with his former camp, Golden Glory, by disposing of Paulo in the very first round. "The Killer" tells Alves, if he believes the punch against Paulo was lucky, he welcomes him to come and find out for himself:
"Alves was trying to duck me, but I went after him on Twitter. Now his feelings are hurt and wants to shut me up? I had to go after him on Twitter to make this fight happen for the fans. He didn't want to fight me, according to insiders. And yes, I'll turn him into a poodle! Just wait and see the interesting transition from a pitbull into a poodle during the fight. And if he thinks beating Paulo Thiago was luck... Tell him to come spar with me at Blackzilians in his city, it'll change his mind and even his intentions of fighting me. I'll predict the same 'luck' against the poodle as against Paulo Thiago. With all due respect to Paulo Thiago, who is a classy fighter and actually didn't try to duck me and took the fight, unlike Alves."
Them fightin' words!LINK
