UFC Quick Quote: Thiago Alves 'praying' for Georges St. Pierre win

"I’m praying everyday for St. Pierre -- St. Pierre all the way, baby. For myself, for my camp and everybody, the MMA fans … I’m going for GSP!"

-- Number one welterweight contender Thiago Alves shares his hopes with Cage Writer regarding the outcome of tonight's blockbuster showdown between 170-pound champion Georges St. Pierre and lightweight titlist BJ Penn, echoing similar statements to that of Jon Fitch. Alves and Fitch -- and more than likely the rest of the top players in the division -- do not want to see the pace of the title defenses come to a screeching halt, which would more than likely happen if Penn wins tonight. He'd be on the hook to defend both titles (170 and 155), meaning that he'd have to be willing to fight very often to keep things moving in both classes.
