According to UFC.com, former UFC welterweight contender Thiago Alves (23-7) is tapped to face Swedish prospect Papy Abedi, the #1-ranked middleweight fighter on the 2011 World MMA Scouting Report, at UFC 138 on November 5th in Birmingham, England. Abedi is currently undefeated at 8-0, finishing seven of his eight opponents within the confines of the 185 lb. weight class. The contest at UFC 138 will be Abedi's first weight cut down to 170 lbs., creating some concern whether he'll be able to make the cut and maintain his brute strength.
