    one of my first favorite fighters, but has not been a nice experience to follow him the last year.s.. Shrinking after USADA, no really explosiveness and no kicks... would not be suprised if he retires after next fight.

    This guy rode that old Matt Hughes win to unprecedented heights. I don't even remember him winning more than 2 fights in a row.

    Where is Spencer Fisher at these days...

    I remember Alvie's popped for a banned diuretic years ago, 9 month suspension I think.

    He was fighter of the year in 2006 (or 7?) and took a 6 fight win streak into his title fight with GSP, If I remember correctly.

    Dude goes from being a huge 170 lb to looking like a frail 155.

    In his prime, many believed Alves was the biggest WW in the UFC, & he once missed weight by 7 lbs I think. 7 lbs for a 170 lb fight is huge. There are many people who suspected Alves was on PEDs during that time. It is a bit ironic he mentions he hopes USADA has done its job
