    Well, I think Hardy's got enough power in his striking and clinch to have a surefire FOTN war with Lytle and his size at WW puts him in a pretty great position with both Serra or Lytle, however the difference between a potential loss to Alves and one to Lytle or Serra is that Alves cripples Hardy with aggressive legkicks and bullying clinchwork and makes him look foolish en route to a second round stoppage, whereas I think he either finishes both Lytle(who's never been KO'd but I think he's due if he goes any higher in skillset) or Serra(who's striking is OK, but his range and technique is pretty spotty, especially at WW) or decisions them, or at worst, loses a hard fought decision and isn't terribly exposed as not a top tier WW, as he definately would against Alves.

    Not happening, no way Dana lets one of the UK boys go down three straight. Hardy's going to get Chris Lytle or Matt Serra and Alves gets winner of Sanchez/Thiago, loser of Kampmann/Shields or maybe Josh Koschek, but no way this happens.

    I'd rather see Alves fight Condit, but coming off a loss and a failed weight cut, he doesn't really deserve any steps up in competition, imo.

    YEP that would be the fight he has set for DEC 11th VS John Howard
    Alves has not ko'ed any one since June 2008 oh but wait he missed weight for that fight so does it really count Well shit he did TKO a game Parisyan in April 2008 .
    I not sure he could do the same to Dan

    Agreed, Alves needs to worry about cutting weight before he has anyplace trying to pick a match. Missing weight is one of the deadly sins for an MMA fighter. His height is a BS excuse for not wanting to move up to MW. Look at Serra he is a midget and at 170 ko'd GSP. Jeff Monson at HW, etc.. Cut back on the ding dongs and take your carreer you were blessed with serious. He has the skills but I think he is using his height as an excuse. IMHo

    Alves shouldn't get a choice of staying at WW. He keeps missing weight, and arguably his biggest win, which was against Hughes, will forever be tarnished by his inability to make weight.

    I've mentioned my disdain for him and others like him, guys that are trying to maximize size advantage by sticking in a weight division they clearly shouldn't or can't realistically be in anymore. Alves needs to sack up and go to MW, IMHO.
