Thiago Alves is a light heavyweight
Yesterday, welterweight Thiago Alves weighed in for today’s UFC on FX 2 bout with Martin Kampmann at 170.5 pounds. Three hours later he was 27 pounds heavier. By the time he steps into the cage he’ll probably tip past 200 pounds. That is an insane weight cut, an insane weight rebound (no matter how much of it is water weight). What kind of toll will that have on his body, both in the short term and long term?
