Thiago Alves defeats Matt Hughes at UFC 85 Bedlam
After Thiago “Pitbull” Alves weighed in at 174 lbs, failing to make the 170 lb limit, Matt Hughes said it didn’t matter and the fight would continue on as planned. So Alves, who looked to be a good 10 lbs heavier than Hughes at fight time, used devastating knees in the 2nd round to stop Matt and claim the victory.
Alves begged Dana White for a title fight, but failing to make weight didn’t gain any points with White. If you know Dana, his biggest piss-point is a guy who doesn’t make weight. We’ll monitor the situation as it plays out.
