Thiago “Pitbull” Alves, fresh off his win at UFC 85 against former welterweight champion Matt Hughes, today spoke about his next opponent, Diego Sanchez and how he intends to knock him out.
“I know I’m going to knock him out. It doesn’t matter what round…. I want to put on an exciting fight for the fans. Diego is a pretty tough guy, but I can knock him out. But I have to take him down and submit him, I’ll do that. I’ll be on top of my game.”
The fight will take place on October 25th at the UFC’s first ever event in Chicago. The night will be headlined by middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, defending his title against dangerous striker Patrick Cote.
