BJ Penn vs Thiago Alves.

I would say Alves by decision because he is primarily a striker and is the most technical in the division. He would use kicks, where Penn primarily uses punches. Alves also has the power advantage, but Penn is very precise with his shots (unless fighting edgar). I'd take Alves by SD in a thriller FOTN

It would be a standup fight... until Alves threw a leg kick and Penn caught it' date=' took him down and chocked him out.[/quote']

 

Penn probably wouldn't be able to hold Alves down. GSP had trouble doing it.

 

I think it'd go to decision. Probably Alves by UD. Definitely be a good fight.

Who wins and how?

 

Alves by TKO in the 3rd.

 

Alves' ground game is good enough to avoid Penn's submissions.

 

Alves is a more technical and well rounded striker.

 

Alves will have 17 lbs weight advantage on fight night with better cardio, and twice the power as Penn.

 

by the 3rd round I see Penn worn out and unable to get Tiago on the ground.

 

Thiago finishes by TKO.

Better Cardio?? Alves barely makes weight and sometimes doesn't. Penn has gone 4 and 5 rounds... wow, people are still questioning Penn's cardio!?

Thiago couldn't stop Howard, and actually spent most of the fight on the ground offensively.

 

Everyone at WW is going to have a weight "advantage". Too bad none other than GSP have a skill advantage.
