"[When Almeida fought] Cote, I learned a lot. Keep my level low. He does get frustrated when he can't control you on the ground, when you shut down takedowns, he breaks as a fighter, but I'm a firm believer that he learned from that fight and he's going to come out a little different, he's going to come out more prepared. That's what I'm going on. But I'm also going on the fight that he can be broken, and I think I'm going to break him."
--The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Season 3 middleweight winner Kendall Grove (10-5) looks to notch his third straight win by defeating grappling wizard Ricardo Almeida at UFC 101 this Saturday from the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia. "Da Sypder" is coming off a first round TKO over Jason Day at UFC 96 last March and will no doubt look to keep this one standing as well to avoid any of "Cachorrao's" deadly ground game. The Hawaiian has been up and down since his debut in 2006 but has a chance to establish himself in a crowded middleweight division -- does he have what it takes to pull it off?
