Matt Brown looks to continue his unexpected charge towards the top of the welterweight division when he fights Thiago Alves at UFC on Fox Sports 1 1 in August.

Badass fight. With the way Brown has been looking lately coupled with the layoff for Alves, I've got Brown by dec.

thiago who? he must be new because it cant be the same fighter that challenged for the title a few years back in all seriousness, i will be picking brown all day long. alves is not what he used to be and i think brown has a great style to beat thiago. grind him out until hes dead tired (probably will happen about mid 1st round) then grind some more until he breaks. war brown

PITBULL IS BACK! Yes!! Great fight here should be a war, Brown is so dangerous Thiago will have to be careful but after seeing Mein hurt Brown pretty bad in his last fight I feel confident that Thiago will hurt him and not let him off the hook
Alves KO2 I will take that Av bet all day long

Alves has all the tools and then some to win this fight, but Brown is on such a tear! If Alves learned from Brown's last fight, he should know he can out box him and that the body shots are clutch.

I finally think I've found a good match for Brown, Alves is going to be in trouble if he can't take Brown out in the first.

Good fight but a step back for Matt.

Thiago's lost 4 of 6. Brown's on a 5 fight W streak.

Not much else out there though.

Brown is as underrated as Thiago is overrated, I know it's only a matter of time before Brown gets put to sleep but I don't think Thiago is a top 5 guy anymore and just as one dimensional as Brown.

I don't think Brown is "one dimensional" at all. On the contrary actually.

i feel like the sheer strength ddifference will win alves the fight. If he doesn't gas that is. Brown wont catch him in a sub. alves is too compact for that.


hopefully brown can stay on the outside and pick him apart. going to the ground is a mistake along with coming inside and trying to knock him out

Why did we have to change the numbering system just for Fox...should have fist continued to call the Fight Nights.
