    Alves undergoes successful brain surgery

    By Damon Martin/MMAWeekly.com Mar 31, 5:52 pm EDT



    • Print


    Thiago Alves underwent successful surgery needed to repair the brain anomaly that kept him out of his UFC 111 bout against Jon Fitch. He hopes to return to training soon.
    Alves’ camp, American Top Team, revealed the news on Wednesday stating that everything went perfect with the surgery, and first comment after waking up was asking when he could train again.

    Prior to his fight at UFC 111, Alves was forced out of the bout when a CAT scan revealed a potentially dangerous problem in the fighter’s brain, and the commission would not allow him to compete.
    Immediately following the prognosis, Alves saw specialists in New York and scheduled a surgery to repair the issue.
    Over the weekend, Alves held a press conference in New York to confirm the issue, stating he would undergo surgery and hoped to return to action by May.
    The recovery should keep Alves out of action and training for at least a few weeks, but then he can resume normal activities and schedule his next fight.

    Anyone have an opinion on this? I think it is a dick move on Dana's part. Training with a guy all this time and now u have to fight him? I think it is more that Fitch rubs Dana the wrong way. I wonder if this was Liddel and Dana made him fight his friend. Now i think it might be a little different if someone was hassling me for a title shot and the number one contender was his friend but Dana could go Fitch/Hardy or Fitch /Johnson instead of forcing him to fight Kos. Lets see if Dana ever mentions little Nog against Machida or Dos Santos vs Big Nog. I doubt he will cause he doesn't have the same hardon he has with Fitch.

    having 2 high level guys who won't fight each other, but will eliminate other guys from rising to the top of the division is bad.

    however, forcing 2 guys to fight each other who don't want to, would likely make for a shitty fight.

    i think the 170 lb class is in a little worse shape than the other divisions because the number of options are limited, fitch and koscheck are already in the contention spot.

    big nog's brain is gone, he shouldn't be fighting anyone the caliber of dos santos.

    i'm pretty sure lil nog has said he would fight machida.

    can you imagine if fitch or koscheck won the title? while the other guy eliminated contenders.

    dana should probably put one of them in the undercard facing no-names so he doesn't eliminate contenders.

    it's a screwed up situation which i don't recall seeing in boxing.

    The funniest thing is the Bellagio used one of Dana Whites own quotes saying "We are no longer in the Dana White business."

    I guess Tito got a good laugh out of that one.

    Strikeforce fighters get some tv acting exposure tonight. Sort of. I dont know anyone that watches NCIS:LA.
    I never got into NCIS so I sure as hell wasn't going to watch a version with LL Cool J as lead actor.

    Please tell me that UFC 115 is on free tv.
    Dana talks about how he needs to do something for the fans for what Silva did.

    This will make two things he needs to do for the fans after making them pay for this shit card.

    This card is pure shit.

    Good for Dana. I am glad somebody is looking forward to seeing this piece of crap card because I am not.
    I mean really pay money to see Chuck in a main event and Cro Cop as the next best fight.REALLY?

    I haven't bought the last 5 or 6 but have seen them all live.
    Don't tell Dana.

    I don't think anyone should defend a card that has Chuck as a headliner at this point in his career.
    The UFC is supposed to be so freaking deep with talent yet they roll this card out.
    Pathetic.

    I am a MMA fan and will watch just about any card possible but asking for someone to buy card after card with lack of talent on it is watering the sport down.
    The talent on this card has free written all over it.

    Strikeforce card this Saturday puts this card to shame and it is on CBS.
    Dana being stubborn with network deals is ripping the fans off is my only point.

    As for every card not being fireworks, I agree that is why you have Spike or get another tv deal.
    Paying based on the talent on this card is BS.

    There's a reason why Strikeforce cards are free. It's the only option(if they wanna hang around).

    Personally, I can watch any 2 fighters get out there and scrap. This is a fight I've wanted to see for a long time.

    NO WAY. Did Dana tell you that?

    Strikeforce is doing just fine by all reports.
    Only Dana says they are in trouble.

    They have a network deal with CBS and Showtime.
    You can catch the Strikeforce card May 15th(which is better than any recent UFC card) on PPV if you don't have Showtime.

    Strikeforce has as many top tier fighters as UFC.

    You need to ignore Dana until he has some proof other than his loud mouth that Strikeforce is in trouble.

    I am a MMA fan and would say UFC is doing a better job than Strikeforce if I believed that but they are not.
    The Chuck/Rich fight is about 2 years too late.
    Chuck has looked bad for quite some time now and Rich is clearly past his prime.
    This is not a main event of a PPV.
    And Cro Cop as the next fight. Pathetic. He is terrible these days.

    I never said they were in trouble. I said there's a reason why they have to do them free. Because they wouldn't last if they were at a PPV rate.

    Also, whoever told you they have as many top tier fighters as the UFC lied.

    I said the top tier which is true. It may not be extremely deep but the talent is there.

    Strikeforce HW:
    Fedor,Barnett,Overeem,Rogers,Aleks Emilianeko. That is 5 of the top 10 or 11 HW and Strikeforce has them.

    LHW:
    Mousasi
    Dan Henderson. That is 2 of the top 5 LHW's in the world.

    Middleweights:
    Jake Shields ( #2 MW in the world)
    Dan Henderson (Top 3 fighter when he fights at MW)
    Robbie Lawler(Top 10 MW fighter)

    The 155 class is somewhat weak but Melendez and Aoki should be a good fight.

    Aoki is the number two fighter in the world and since Penn loss i think he is number one. Now.

    Yeah he is top 2 155 guys.
    Strikeforce is really lacking talent at the lower levels though 155 and the 170 class doesn't even have enough to give Nick Diaz a real challenge.

    The thing that sours me on some UFC cards is that they are just doing too many PPV events and it could lead to a downfall.
    Strikeforce may put on less cards but EVERY card is of serious quality.
    The Saturday 3 main fights are SICK and FREE.

    I am all for the more the better but $100 a month is going to push this sport to somewhat of a negative thing at some point is my thinking.

    Was this on the things that annoy MJ'ers?
