While a knee injury forced grappling ace Ricardo Almeida (11-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) out of a planned UFC 106 bout with Jon Fitch, "Big Dog" apparently won't sit out for long.

And while Almeida couldn't comment on the potential contest when contacted by MMAjunkie.com, additional sources have indicated Brazilian slugger Thiago Alves (16-6 MMA, 9-3 UFC) may be in the running to face the 33-year-old.

Joe Silva must want Almeida to lose his WW debut.

I don't know, Almeida should be a beast at WW and Thiago isn't the best grappler out there. Almeida has only been knocked out once and that was years ago....Then again I would still love for Thiago to take him out, it could show important improvements in his abilities.

I don't see Almeida taking Alves to the ground, its going to be a nice Alves KO Knee to the face maybe?

I hope Alves knees him in the face and then head kicks him so Almeida can die.


j/k about the dying part.
