    Why would he let his family stay there in the first place. Retarded logic.

    His whole gym, business associates and the like could have stayed to look after his family .. I need a guy like you on my team.
    I'm being sarcastic, just so you know.

    Do you, though? I'm struggling to figure out the mindset of someone who thinks this way. He could be in the biggest fight of all time, but if he figures his family is in danger and that he can better serve their interests (fighting is their livelihood, after all, and most people fight in large part for their families), then I'd feel hard-pressed to fault him. Maybe it's because I know a lot of fighters and why they actually choose to fight (not to mention the long and storied history of fighters giving everything in the ring only to be left with little for them or their families in their later years), but the mindset of the fan who thinks the fighters really owe them anything has always been bizarre to me.

    Like a year after the GSP fight. Nothing to do with the fight supposedly.

    Gleison is the same age as Thiago why does he look like he's 50?

    Do you know what state his home is in? Do you know the situation of his finances, extended family finances and housing situation? Money always helps I'm not denying that, but assuming he gets, 30k after fees and taxes how much is 30k going to cover?

    Wouldn't it have made a lot more sense for them to have left before the storm, and then he coulda got paid?

    Just had brain surgery? You mean had surgery a few years ago or for a 2nd time? If it's the latter, hang 'em up.

    Not the cost of a new wife or kid.

    That is just retarded.
    Alves is a phoney.
    How about evacuating in time? It's not like it came out of nowhere...

    When did he have brain surgery??

    Also, if you decide to fight there's no cherry picking just because of a condition. Retire in that case.

    He was probably staying there to protect his property as well as his wife and child.

    Sure, he could have left early.... and returned to his destroyed, looted, flooded, vandalised property.

    I stayed in Fort Lauderdale in the 2004 hurricane for the very same reasons.

    Can't blame the guy.

    Possibly.

    But they were at the airport together...both of them waiting for same flight.

    Lombard is another ATT guy that is on the card.


    I'm not judging Alves in any way...just seems odd he was posting so much bravado about the hurricane, then multiple pics at the airport, then we find out he pulls out due to hurricane. Doesn't add up....but doesn't change my daily life...just observation
