    I didn't so much. I got it from him being an established professional fighter who didn't make weight.

    Other than this fight, I'm not sure if I want to see the main card. I was hoping to see "The Sandman" Irvin but alas, it ain't happening.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Where does everyone get that Alves is going to walk through Hughes? I understand that Hughes looked rough against George St. Pierre, but the last time I checked, Alves is not GSP. We're talking about a guy who got outwrestled by Fitch and who was taken down by Karo in seconds. His only chance is going to be to land a knockout shot before Hughes ties up with him...something that has so far only been managed by Pele and Rush.

    Also, I guess we can add Alves along with Lutter and Ruediger, to the list of fighters TKOed by Fudgie the Ice Cream Cake Whale.

    Yeah, it's those devil's own 4 extra pounds why Hughes can't take him down or pick him up to slam.

    As for the event, I'm optimistic. There are no huge names if you count out Hughes, but the matches might prove entertaining as everyone is making a scramble for the limelight. I'm rooting for Davis, his fights have been very entertaining. It's not an event I'd pay through the nose for, but still I'd consider buying it with my friends if it wasn't for the Football (that's soccer to you..) European Championships, which I can view free for my pleasure in the same time slot.

    It's because he's starting to be in that point in his career where he's fighting only for the money. Even he says he's got only a couple of fights left in him and he took this on a very late notice.

    Plus he's a pompous egomaniac, which might make people not-so-secretly hope for a humiliating defeat for him.

    Because Alves is getting better and better, geting into his prime whereas Hughes is on a decline. Seriously.

    I would not be surprised if Hughes win since, douchebag or not, he's still a top-notch fighter. Alves winning, however, that would be something sweet to watch.

    I think Hughes is going to take him down and have his way with him like so many other fighters.

    Razamataz is likely right, unfortunately.

    Worst outcome: Alves wins closely and then tests positive, again.
    Second worst outcome: Hughes wins
    Best outcome: Alves gives Hughes a soul destroying beating.

    I have to disagree, nothing is worse than Hughes winning.

    Hearing about how a steroid enhanced guy barely edged him out, from him, might be.
