Sources close to both fighters today told MMAjunkie.com that the fight has been discussed and that bout agreements are expected to be signed. The welterweight bout would complement UFC 84’s main event between UFC welterweight champ Matt Serra and interim champ Georges St. Pierre.
Well, I’ll give it to Karo. This isn’t quite the “layup” I thought he would get for his next fight. Alves is coming off a solid victory over Chris Lytle in his last fight and looked very good throughout the duration of the bout. It’s likely that Karo takes this bout but don’t underestimate Alves’ ability.
