My condolences Diego... Guess we'll just have to wait a few extra weeks before the beat down.

After what I saw against Luigi, I think that Diego will be champ at 170 in the next 2 years. I know you guys are going to bash Diego saying well he couldn't take Luigi down. He wasn't trying to, his plan was to stand and bang with one of the division's best boxers, and absolutely dismantled him. I honestly don't think Alves can knock him out. He'll use strikes to set up take downs and get Thiago to the ground and eventually grind out a UD or sub him.

Iam glad to see they are still making this fight happen. Should be a good fight. Diego looked good in his last fight, and Alves has the ability to be a title contender with this win.

This should be billed as a number one contender's match.

Although Kos won't like that.
