    I'd love to see him get an opponent that will at least allow him to crack the top 15. Maybe Ryan LaFlare when he comes back from his injury or Tarec Saffedine. Thoughts?

    There was a thread on here saying he was supposed to fight Stephen Thompson but I don't think ts ever provided a source.

    I hope not. That win doesn't really do anything for Thiago at this stage of his career. He's in an unusual predicament because he shares the same camp with like almost a third of the top ten (Lawler, Woodley & Lombard).

    No source on Alves vs Wonderboy but I hope that's'tthe fight they make. Pretty much a gauranteed barn burner.

    To be honest I've almost given up hope of Saffiedine ever fighting again. A good fighter, but so fragile.

    If he ever comes back Alves would be a good scrap.
