Following back-to-back losses to notables Paul Daley and Andre Galvao earlier this year, veteran fighter John Alessio needed a new game plan.

Alessio, a veteran of organizations ranging from the UFC to PRIDE to the WEC to DREAM, knew he wanted a long-term home but knew a contract was unlikely with the recent skid. So he took it one contracted fight at a time.

Eh, Alessio is a B level fighter, he's good but not great, could make for some exciting matches in the UFC, but ultimately I think he would be better off signing a long term deal with Strikeforce or DREAM/Sengoku

Guys who have fought and lost in the UFC need to make improvements before returning. They need to rack up an impressive amount of wins and then come back. That's what my boy Babalu had to do and it worked out just fine....until that Chuck Lambert fiasco.....
