Nice finish, but it doesn’t do anything for Thiago. He stays in limbo in the division. Maybe fight Ellenberger next…

wow I know he was rocked but heres another classic case of a one sided striker who thinks he can slug his way to all victories…weeden em out. Everybody needs ground skills.

Well, it would be a good chance for Thiago to prove he learned some wrestling and for Ellenberger to show he can bang with an elite striker.

Thiago doesn’t perform badly against wrestlers. As chargerzfan notes, he handled Kos, he also demolished Hughes. The loss to Story was very close (some thought Thiago won) and Fitch is the number 2 WW in the world (yes, he’d beat Diaz, and yes, he’d beat Ellenberger).

Thiago vs Ellenberger would make some sense actually.

@facephucke
It wasnt his lack or ground skills that lost him the fight he got rocked hard standing on his feet that lead to the easy choke finish.

Maybe he was too confident taking that fight.Anyways overconfident or not you won’t win with 8 fights against a guy like Thiago who’s a huge powerful striker brown belt in bjj and becoming better and better in TDD.Unless the fighter has an extensive striknig or grppling background 8 fights vs Alves is gettibg fed to the lions.

@3:47 I knew Thiago was playing possum. He kept backing up, then threw a right with such confidence (which missed) that I knew his opponent was in trouble.

Has Alves always talked like he has teh downz?

Nice fight though. Clear victory. Submission was the icing on the cake.

He really didn’t look all that bad until he got caught because he was dropping his hand like Thiago said. lol dude looked like a new born deer when he got rocked though!
