Jon Fitch outwrestles Thiago Alves for Unanimous Decision victoryPosted on August 7, 2010, 11:13 PM by Anton Gurevich
Jon Fitch did what he knows best, winning a Unanimous Decision against “The Pitbull” Thiago Alves. As always, Fitch did not damage his opponent but still managed to dominate throughout the fight, thanks to his incredible wrestling skills.
Thiago Alves may blame his rough weight cut and ring rust, but the truth is that “The Pitbull” had a little to offer against Fitch, even with the fight in the stand-up. Alves showed improved Wrestling abilities, but it was not enough to stop Jon Fitch from executing his gameplan.
It is yet unclear whether Jon Fitch will get a title shot against the Koscheck vs GSP winner. Jon Fitch’s last finish was more than three years ago, as a victory against Alves is a 8th consecutive Decision. The AKA product may have to prove his worth once again before he gets another shot at the title.
