Thiago Alves has always been overrated. He just looks intimidating, has big muscles and knocked out Matt Hughes with a flying knee, which = UFC marketability. All of a sudden he's the best striker in the division? It sure would look terrible if the "best striker in the division" got knocked the fuck out by someone who isn't even top-10. He looked pretty slow in the Jon Fitch rematch, too.
I really hope for Thiago's sake that he comes out and shows why he was given that label in the first place.
