Pretty sure I read that Alves had knee surgery and is looking for a return in the first quarter of 2014. Dan Hardy has a really serious heart condition that may force him to retire and at any rate, take him a really long time to come back and he'll probably be cutting alot of extra weight to get to WW given the time off he's had and with less than 8 weeks out, I don't think that's enough time.

I was wondering about signing Paul Daley to simply be a body for Lombard, dunno if his legal issues and/or Dana's stance on him has softened....
