Thiago Alves Guarantees A Finish In His Next Fight

By Evan Stoumbelis
Welterweight Thiago Alves, who is coming off a disappointing submission loss to Martin Kampmann, is guaranteeing a finish in his next fight against Siyar Bahadurzada. The two men are set to fight at UFC 149 on July 21st in Calgary.

Alves had the following to say about facing Siyar instead of Yoshihiro Akiyama, on TapouT radio recently.

“I’m very excited. I think it’s not a better match-up, but that it’s a better fight, because Siyar is coming from a big knockout against Paulo Thiago, and I definitely want to avenge that with a victory for my country, and of course for my camp as well. He has a lot of hype behind him, so I’m very excited to accept this challenge.

I feel like I have the edge in experience, and in the level of competition. The level of competition he was fighting wasn’t the level of the competition that I’m used to fighting. That’s definitely going to come into play with this fight. Also, the skillset comes into play. I think I’m a much better fighter everywhere in the game, and July 21, I’m going to go out there and execute it.”

Alves was, at one point, a dominant force in the welterweight division, winning 7 fights in a row, before going 2-4 in his last 6 fights. With a win over Siyar, Thiago hopes to get back on the road to victory.

      If you were the fighter you say you were, you wouldn’t be talking shit…

    • Jim says:

      So? what relevance does that have? I’ve been competing in a number of combat sports for over a decade now, that doesn’t do anything to back up my opinions, why the fuck should you be any different?

      If you were a high level pro, we’d know who you were, and you’d have the opportunity to actually prove your theories against Alves, but you’re not; so whatever level of proficiency you think you have is entirely irrelevant.

    I understand where he is coming from, he believe’s a better match-up, but he must think he has a magic crystal ball or he’s talking just to hype up the fight. If he can see into the future will someone ask him some lotto numbers and the correct day, or ask him when Pedro is going to post more BJ and his Ohana on here. I’m just saying. WAR BJ WAR!!!
