UFC 117 Bet Pick: Thiago Alves vs. Jon FitchThiago Alves wants to avenge his early loss to Jon Fitch in 2006. Alves has definitely improved his ground game and takedown defense since his loss to Jon Fitch. Alves is a top level striker with 5 KO wins since 2006. Fitch is a top level contender who is 12-1 in the UFC with his only loss to GSP where he took a ton of punishment for 5 rounds. Alves has gotten the early love from online sportsbooks and the early betting action because of his KO power. However, Alves has had to cancel the last to scheduled fights due to a knee injury and brain surgery. Fitch is a beast of a grinder who can out point Alves with his wrestling and striking. Add in the 1 year of ring rust for Alves since his lost to GSP and you have to take Fitch - LARGE. TAKE Jon Fitch -110 Odds
