Sucks that Alves got injured.

But so happy to see Thatch back. Both great fighters on the feet, but I'm leaning towards Thatch.

Yeah, it sucks that Alves got injured yet again but Thatch is an awesome replacement. He's turning into one of my favorite fighters.

Gotta love those dynamic strikers who mix it up. IMO Mein is getting a taste of being the old lion for once.
I think Thatch takes this in a war like we have never seen before

So nice to finally see Thatch back, but you know I am insanely bummed about Alves being injured AGAIN
Hopefully it's not as serious and he can come back strong asap
