After his latest win over Jake Shields at UFC 129, there aren't many names left on the list of opponents that UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre has left to challenge him in the division. Matt Serra, Matt Hughes, and BJ Penn have all taken their turn and fallen against St. Pierre, and as of right now Thiago Alves is just another name on that list. Alves fell to St. Pierre via unanimous decision at UFC 100 in July of 2009, but now two years later continues to work his way back to status as a contender as he prepares for a battle with Rick Story.

  • UFC 130: Rampage vs. Hamill
  • Thiago Alves vs. Rick Story
  • Saturday May 28, 2011 – 9:00 PM ET
  • MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Online Sports Betting Odds: Alves - 300

Story has won five straight fights dating back to 2009, rebounding from a loss to John Hathaway in his UFC debut to prove he is capable of taking the next step. A bout against Alves will certainly be just that, and it will be interesting to see how he fares after calling out the former No. 1 contender around the Preakness Stakes betting tilt.

UFC Betting Preview: Thiago Alves

After stringing together seven straight wins in the UFC from 2006 to 2008, Alves took a step back after finally earning some recognition as the No. 1 contender in the welterweight division. After falling short against St. Pierre, Alves failed to make weight in a catchweight fight against Jon Fitch in another unanimous decision loss, but seems to have found even sports betting bonus ground once again after taking down John Howard. A brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Alves has secured 11 of his 18 wins via knockout, but will need to be careful not to become overaggressive against an underrated striker in Story.

UFC Betting Preview: Rick Story

The 26-year old has managed to squeeze out five straight wins, but three of them have gone to judge's decision and he will have to be much stronger against Alves. A wrestler in college, Story has already earned a Submission of the Night honor for his win over Brian Foster at UFC 103 but is better defensively than making his opponent tap. While he may want to attack early on, Story would be better served to feel this fight out and try to wear Alves down since the longer the fight goes on the more it would help him out.

UFC Betting: Matchup & Pick

While Story seemed very confident in calling out Alves after his most recent win, he may be biting off more than he can chew against the most talented opponent that he will have faced in his career. Alves has looked very good since falling to Fitch, both in the octagon and in the gym, and should be able to finish this fight before the final bell.
