Thiago Alves vs Jordan Mein added to UFC 183

A potentially exciting welterweight fight has been added to UFC 183, as Thiago Alves steps in the Octagon with Jordan Mein. UFC 183 is headlined by Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz, and is expected to take place on January 31st, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Thiago Alves is 3-2 in his last five fights inside the UFC’s Octagon, but the Mein fight will only be his second fight since March of 2012, due to multiple injuries and illnesses.

Jordan Mein is an impressive 4-1 in his last five appearances in the UFC’s Octagon, with his sole loss being a ‘fight of the night’ performance against Matt Brown at UFC on FOX 7.

Both Thiago Alves and Jordan Mein are known to constantly look for the finish in their fights, which could result is this fight being a ‘fight of the night’ candidate.

A win for either fighter can pretty much guarantee their next fight would be against a high ranked opponent in their division.
