”I know I’m going to knock him out. It doesn’t matter what round…. I want to put on an exciting fight for the fans. Diego is a pretty tough guy, but I can knock him out. But I have to take him down and submit him, I’ll do that. I’ll be on top of my game.”

– Thiago Alves shares his prediction (a knockout) with the Chicago Sun-Times for his upcoming welterweight scrap with Diego Sanchez at UFC 90: “Silva vs. Cote” at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Ill., on October 25. “The Pitbull” has every reason to be confident — he is riding impressive back-to-back technical knockout wins over top contenders, Matt Hughes and Karo Parisyan. The winner of this fight will likely land a spot behind BJ Penn as the next 170-pound title challenger or at the very least earn a berth in a number one contender eliminator match.

I agree with Tiago... I see a KO in the 2nd round. He is very very tough, and strong.

fighters often under estimate Diego, thats why he usually wins. He has better ground work and always has a surprise on his feet. Diego in the 3rd round via submission.

diego has sick submissions, but he needs to get the fight to the ground to get one, i don't think he does, thiago blasts him for the tko.

cmon just look at what he did to karo and matt, the few times that karo actually got it down he didnt do anything or thiago popped up quickly training with ferguson a judo master, and look at how well luigi did against diego and he isnt even top 20, thiago's going to do what diego did to riggs

diego is better than karo on the ground. Diego can also take a punch and throw some power of his own.

im just saying what i think.

How well he did against Luigi? He beat one of the division's boxer's at his own game. Didn't try to take him down for the majority of the match, and knocked him out...Yeah he was so disappointing against Luigi... I used to hate the guy, but I have nothing but respect for Diego now man, his game along with Koscheck's have evolved and improved more than anyone in the division in the past 2 years. I see Diego being able to wrestle Thiago to the ground, and possibly submitting him, but most likely I see a very very exciting decision with Mr. Sanchez winning.
