    Bit odd. He is probably missing out on a 40-50k deal. More than enough to flight the family and get paid.

    Maybe he has more people there that are in need of help or something.

    That area Coconut Creek, FL took a hell of a beating in the storm. I saw a lot about Miami on the news anywayz & they're just north of there by the ocean so I can imagine it was just as bad.

    If his house took major damage & flooding n stuff I can see how it would be hard to just load up & head out to Pittsburg while his home is in shambles. His power has likely been out since the weekend as well. Hard to focus on a fight in those conditionz... probably couldn't even train for most of the weekend or more.

    Did ATT Coconut Creek lose power? Cause thats like the only reason to. Money is what helps the family in need, he figts for money.

    My dad lives in Miami and basically people just dont have power and gas is limited. That dont mean you cant train, pops is 70 and went jogging on Monday and this week

    He is ok. He was at the airport waiting to leave.

    Incredible how no one is willing to take a look at what's going on. He was chilling the whole time. He just didn't want to go.

    There's nothing on his instagram about his home or his family being in danger. He was having fun and hanging out and was at the gym.

    Unless he's keeping devastating secrets from his social media, he seemingly faced no problems other than his own stupidity.

    Hopefully the UFC at least give Alves his fight pay to help his family out. He's a UFC vet and seems like a good guy.He's doing the right thing hopefully they can do the same.

    Didn't he say he wasn't going to Pittsburgh early ahead of the hurricane?

    Fan of Alves, but hugely disappointed in his decision making here.

    Hope we get to see the Platinum fight later this year. Perry will sleep this Reyes kid and be ready to fight again.

    he would benefit his family more with a big payday from fighting. More than enough money left over to hire laborers to deal with the damage to his house.

    Mike Perry ko's the biggest hurricane ever. Thiago might have saved his own life by ducking the GOAT. Has Jake even woken up yet?

    He can always get another fight. He did what he thought was best for him and his family.

    Are you in any position to say otherwise? Because you're not responsible for his wife and kids and his finances.
