• Thiago Alves set to fight Papy Abedi at UFC 138


    Thiago “Pitbull” Alves will be coming to the UK in November to take on UFC newcomer Papy Abedi at the UFC 138 event that will be taking place in Birmingham, England. As many of you know Alves has gone from being one of the top contenders in the division to only getting one victory out of his last four fights for the UFC. It all went downhill after his loss against GSP for the title at UFC 100. After a year off Thiago came back to face Jon Fitch and lost a decision. He did get a victory against John Howard but this was followed by a loss to Rick Story which put a stop to any momentum Alves may have looked to begin. As much as we all love the “Pitbull” there is no way to avoid the fact that another loss would put his career in the UFC at risk and that would be a great shame. Thiago has what I see as one chance to get himself back on track with this fight against newcomer Papy Abedi at UFC 138. Abedi has a record of 8-0 and will not be looking to give up his unbeaten status easily. He has finished seven of his fights by knockout, sub or TKO so we are certain to see some fireworks! Both fighters need to put on a big performance to cement themselves within the organization. So like many fights in the UFC at the moment it should be very interesting to see what happens and who wants it more!


    Thanks guys!
