Thiago Alves vs. Karo Parisyan

Thiago Alves vs. Karo Parisyan should be a good fight. I can't remember ever watching Alves fight, but his record of 18-4-0 speaks for itself. Parisyan also ownes a very good record having won 25 fights while only losing 4. Parisyan may be extra motivated to win this fight as it should secure him a well deserved title shot. I assume he is currently in line behind John Fitch.

I don't see this fight going Alves's way, but don't be surprised if Alves does win the fight. I am tempted to pick an upset here, but I will go with my first thought and say Parisyan wins this fight via decision.

Man, we are rolling through these fights. The first round starts and Parisyan is able to get a quick takedown. Alves recovers quickly and is able to get the fight back to standup. The round ends, Parisyan wins the round 10-9.

Both fighter come out swinging and as the fighters tie up Alves lands a huge knee sending Parisyan to the mat. The fight is stopped almost immediately and Parisyan jumps to his feet obviously upset with the stoppage. Hard to tell, but I think I will side with the ref on this one, looked like Parisyan was in trouble.

And just like that, Parisyan drops out of a long awaited title shot. Just goes to show that anybody at this level can win a fight.

Guess that makes 5 in a row for Alves, he says he is ready for a title shot. I am not convinced, he needs to win one more to get that title shot in my opinion.
