    I always been fan of the Pitbull for his agressive and powerfull striking style and in this fight he fucking mourdered Abedi. He first rocked him with some clinic strikes, dropped him and mouredered him with viscious fercious gnp and elbows on the ground and finally he choked him out.

    I sincerely miss a bit 2010/2011 UFC years. And a lot veterans of today were at the top.
    Look to some name on this cards and tell me guys if don't miss some of this fighters

    Good match up for him. I hope he will be back on track after his loss against Condit where he didn't look the killer of his prime at all.

    I don't reckon that Alves got popped, but definitely he looked like a monster in the past.

    Alves was an absolute beast back then. It's just too bad he primed out in an era that had the best ever version of GSP dominating it...

    He popped for diuretics to help with the cut but never steroids.

    No chance. I know most in here have the attention span of a goldfish, but Alves has the better technique. People think Edson just because of the recent fight with Giblert. Edson has a beautiful kicking game, but Alves has the better leg kicks.

    This was a month ago...he doesn't look drastically smaller to me. Definitely smaller though.
