UFC Quick Quote: Thiago Alves wants to rematch Jon Fitch in title fight

thiago alves

"I want Jon Fitch to win. That's what I really want because then he'll be holding the belt and it will be really nice to fight him for the belt and get my rematch. I would be able to fight him for the title and get my rematch at the same time so it will be perfect."

-- Thigo Alves tells that he will be rooting for Jon Fitch to pull off the upset at UFC 87: "Seek and Destroy" on August 9 and defeat Georges St. Pierre to become the new welterweight champion. That way the "Pitbull" can kill two birds with one stone: avenge a technical knockout loss earlier in his career and challenge for the 170-pound strap. First, however, he'll have to take care of business against Diego Sanchez at UFC 90: "Silva vs. Cote" on Ocotber 25. Of course, Fitch will also have to defeat "Rush."
