    I remembered it being 8 when he pulled out of the Plat Mike fight but I had to check to be sure.

    very good site, you click the little plus sign next to each cancelled fight and it gives you the reason and fighter.

    Lee would be a good replacement. Gunnar is a small WW and the match up is interesting, especially grappling wise.

    Roided Prime Alves was a monster , He would run trhough some of today top 10 WWs.
    Impressive how GSP was able to completely dominate him even with a torn groin , Yet known shills such as @20falarVerdades fail to acknowledge his greatness.

    There are two other WW bouts on the card

    Brazilian Cowboy vs Nicholas Darby
    Siyar Bahadurzada vs Ismail Naurdiev

    Maybe one of those guys gets bumped up. BC would be doubtful as Gunner just finished him recently.

    Yea, prime Alves was a beast.

    Don't bother with that dude. He's a known troll/GSP hater.

    Kevin Lee vs. Nelson actually sounds like a good fight.

    Or maybe Belal Muhammed?

    9 times doesn't sound all that bad considering how long Alves has been in the ufc. Ive called into work dozens of times just since 2012.

    The previous time he blamed the hurricanes while he was sat at the airport with his teammate Jotko

    yet guess who turned up to fight at that event and who definitely didn't??

    that's right, Jotko drove up the road to another airport but Alves bailed :mad:

    Good suggestion, he came out unscathed against Price.

    Sure he has dropped out of the rankings but he's hardly a can, there's more than 50 welterweights ranked below him
