"Welterweights Matt Brown (17-11) and Thiago Alves (19-9) have verbally agreed to fight on the Aug. 17 card in Boston, sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed with MMAFighting.com Saturday. The fighters have yet to sign bout agreements, according to those same sources."

Cannot wait to see The Pitbull back in the octagon. War Alves - this is going to be a great fight.

Whoa! There's that big step up for Matt we've been asking for!

Very interesting fight. Thiago is a guy who loses fights he should win by folding at critical moments, Brown is a guy who wins fights people pick him to lose because he absolutely never quits.

Go The Immortal!

Kinda weird match up, was hoping to see Brown vs a top 10er.

This is both highly unexpected and highly appealing. Excellent.

About time Alves showed up again. If he's his usual self, this match will rock.

If Matt wins this he vaults into the true contender tier and will be fighting the likes of Kampmann, Kos, Condit, etc.

I like Matt here. Sounds crazy, but he's gonna outlast Alves and maybe stop him

Daaamn thats a cool fight. I can see Brown having a real shot here seeing all the momentum he's got + the fact that Thiago has been out of action for a long time. If Brown stays on the outside he's going to get owned but if he's in Thiago's face the whole time and turns in into a brawl he's got a good shot.

Terrible comeback fight for Alves. He hasn't fought in like 2 years.

Brown wins.

Warrenpeace - Matt's the better fighter today. 3 years ago alves murders him. Today? Alves will find a way to lose.

Alves tooled Kampmann before diving neck first into a takedown. Kampmann>>>Brown. Can't never count Matt out though.

Brown takes this by decision. Alves is coming in off of too long a lay off to fight somebody like Brown right now.

Nice I haven't heard anything from or about Alves in so long I almost forgot about him, I hope he doesn't have too much ring rust and comes in like the top 5-10 ranked WW I remember
