So he’s 2-0, is their current champion, and they won’t give him a fight? Am I misreading this?
That’s what I thought. Isn’t he a champion there? Seems a bit weird but idk.
They probably can't afford his contract.
They can’t afford to pay these vets if there is no big marketing ploy.
Makes sense letting him go, letting another guy get the belt, then in future Alves can come back and retake his title.
It’s classic WWE. Having a premier guy fighting **for** the belt makes more money than having him defend it against challengers (bums)
There’s no prestige in BKB atm so it’s viable to do the above.

Eagle FC and XMMA about to get into the fiercest bidding war
we doing some business here you know
What a shame I wanted to see him vs mike perry
Haha. The fight I never knew I needed to see.
They were supposed to fight a few years ago, but Dominick Reyes little brother got finished instead.
For the longest time whenever I read the name Thiago in MMA I would always think of this guy first.
> Was on a tear until the GSP fight, then downward since.
The story of a good chunk of GSP’s opponents. He ruined careers.
Also makes me think, losing a title fight and then being sent to the back of line and then having to climb your way back up that mountain sounds mentally exhausting really.
I thought he did and became a cop
He has said he wants be a cop when he’s fully retired from fighting. Now, Paulo Thiago, is an actual cop.
You may be confused with Paulo Thiago
I know who Paulo is and he was no regular "cop"
Damn that's a name I haven't heard in forever. Anybody ese remember Thiago Silva? One of Machida's best knockouts
He just fought Hector Lombard in Eagle FC a week or two ago and it was terrible.
Less than a week
This just reminded me of an uppercut that I haven’t thought of in over a decade, but I can instantly see it in my mind as clear as anything. Maybe my memory has a soft spot for Koscheck getting KOed.
I just can’t look at “BKFC” and not think about breakfast chicken
Breakfast kentucky fried chicken
Bare Knuckle Fried Chicken
We give you a chicken, you have to beat it to death and fry it.
Burger King Fried Chicken.
Burger King Football Club is what I see
Maybe all of us, this thread commenters should just go to kfc for breakfast someday
Literally I imagine lots of random men fighting each other for free buckets of wings in the parking lot. Don’t know if I can compete but I’ll put in for some of the chicken prize
Double leg takedown on the concrete followed by elbow ground pound for a free crispy burger... Thats my damn favourite.
I’m curious if Bellator signs him on a one off for MVP … Alves back on the Mexican supplements is never a dull boy.
Why would he not be on the Mexican supplements now
Why MVP? I must be missing something there.
MVP is style dependent and Alves is the stand and throw type scrapper that would make for a good fight. Plus he's a name, and a winnable fight, as Coker wants to get MVP back into a title fight ASAP.
He's on all the Mexican supplements in BKFC tbh.
MVP would starch him, but it’s a decent bounce back fight.

BJ-Penn-nodding.gif. Yeah I would watch that.
Old and out of his prime, Bellator is lurking.
No surprise now that triller owns bkfc. It’s only a matter of time till it’s gone.
