SAO PAULO -- Thiago Alves headlines UFC Fight Night 79 against Ben Henderson, but that wasn’t the UFC's first option. Speaking with MMAFighting.com during ADCC in Brazil, "Pitbull" revealed the promotion considered a welterweight fight with Nate Diaz, talked about his upcoming bout with Henderson, his decision to drop to 155 pounds in 2016, and much more.

The only thing i worry about his drop is that he will lose a chunk of his punching power and wont have the same KO success that he had at 170.

i agree but with his tdd, and striking credentials i think he could make a good run at that division. he needs to work on his ground game and sub defense. i know this may sound crazy but id love for him to do some training with the guys over at tam i think that would strengthen his game for a lighter division.
