Thiago “The Pitbull” Alves has only one thing on his mind, his first UFC title shot against welterweight champion Georges “Rush” St. Pierre. Alves understands the difficult task in front of him, but he is both physically and mentally focused on St. Pierre’s “mistakes.” The Brazilian Muay Thai specialist believes that St. Pierre has very few holes in his game, but he plans to look for those holes in order to land a strike that will knock out the champion straight to the mat.
In case the fight goes all five rounds, Alves travelled to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado to intensify his training to the fullest extent. He’ll be training his last 5 weeks in Colorado before he flies back to Las Vegas, Nevada for his UFC 100 co-main event.
Snip from The Pitbull himself:
“It’s going to be a good camp [in Colorado]. It’s going to be five weeks. We’ve got our house and everything, and all we are going to do is train and sleep and train…. It’s a title shot … I’m going to do everything I can to get there, and Colorado is just another thing that I have to do…. I’m going to look for the knockout. I’m going to make him pay for every mistake. I know he doesn’t make many mistakes, but … I’m going to make him make those mistakes, and he is going to pay for everything.”
