    Agreed.

    Obviously we don't really know the whole story...but his Instagram posts, pics and vids don't make it seem like there was any issue as recently as yesterday.

    I would think he would have left before the storm hit (he has pics of his house windows being protected with shutters) - even on Sunday which is 6 days before the fight - and take the family to Pittsburgh a few days early.

    Mike Perry said on MMA Hour that he drove to North Carolina and took a flight from there. He also said the UFC insisted on him leaving Florida early.

    In all seriousness, it would be tragic for Thiago's family to suffer a hurricane and then watch him die.

    Let's just stop the trolling please.

    OK...so in the pictures on Alves' Instagram he is at the airport with Jotko (no sign of BJ Penn at said airport)

    Jotko is on this same card...is he still fighting?

    Lombard is another ATT guy on the card...is he still fighting?

    He is a bit soft in the head.

    He should've gotten his family out of there and done his fucking job.

    Well he could've said that a bit earlier, not 2 days before the event.

    I too was hit by Irma so I understand his view.

    But as a MMA fan I also understand why some people are upset. Not too much though, it's not like it's a title fight or something.

    Not just hard to focus on the fight, but probably hard to focus on his weight cut in the lead up to the fight.

    With power out and a complete disruption of his work routine, I am sure making weight would be more difficult than any other of his past fights.

    Thiago seems like he is in a no-win situation:

    - Pull out and people will have ???????????

    - Miss weight and people will have ????????????

    Maybe he is repairing his house dickhead to make it livable for his family.
    Do us all a favor and shut your cock holster.

    I have a question: is Polish Platinum aka Jotko off the card, too?

    Yeah, but I get it. He doesn't need to prove anything.

    Then Jotko would back out, too. Right?
