    If Alves' reason for pulling out week of is a minor one, (People are saying its because of the Hurricane, travel related, etc.) similar to Ray Borg and he can fight again soon, add this fight to UFC 216's PPV. The card just had Mighty Mouse-Borg added to it and throwing Alves-Perry on it would help the PPV out a fuck ton.

    This is the card we were going to get:

    Tony Ferguson vs. Kevin Lee
    Fabricio Werdum vs. Derrick Lewis
    Paige VanZant vs. Jessica Eye
    Walt Harris vs. Mark Godbeer
    Beneil Daruish vs. Evan Dunham

    Now, here's the card we'll get if the UFC makes the proper changes (assuming it works for Alves as well)

    Tony Ferguson vs. Kevin Lee
    Mighty Mouse vs. Ray Borg
    Fabricio Werdum vs. Derrick Lewis
    Thiago Alves vs. Mike Perry
    Beneil Dariush vs. Evan Dunham

    That's a much better job. You know what the fuck to do, Dana. Get the shit done.

    Good idea

    Or give Perry a better opponent than that unrelieable washed up bald head that he can show his true greatness and these bitter little boys can stop giving the "over the hill" excuse.

    He's out because his plan was to "ride it out", in reference to the hurricane.


    Every cancelled fight should be rebooked as soon as possible. Nunes/Val was the precedence.

    If that's the case than this fight should definitely be moved to 216.

    Exactly. And if what being said is true and he pulled out because he tried to ride out the hurricane like a dumb ass, moving it to 216 is ideal. Makes the card way better.

    Yah I guess giving him someone like a male model is more suitable? Winnable fight for sure. Lol

    Yeah it was previously reported briefly that it was due to injury, but now it's gone to "undisclosed reasons" which could mean hurricane. We'll find out sooner than later, and if possible, throwing that fight on 216 would be great.

    If it is Hurricane related, man. How do you not take into account the fact that you have a fight in another state you have to travel to? What is the benefit of "riding it out"?

    LOL at people assuming some random on the internet knows what he's talking about.
    The ONLY place you'll find anyone saying it was travel related is here on Sherdog.

    Protecting and caring for those like family less physically able than you are or otherwise unable to leave, is my guess. If that's the reason, the hurricane kept him in town, it most likely wasn't for dumb, selfish or "manly" reasons.
