From Tatame:

"You’re gonna see a different Pitbull. You didn’t see my wrestling and my ground game, because I didn’t have an opportunity to use it, and I feel that my career started after this last fight… I grew up a lot as a person and as a fighter, I’m recharged and I’ll get what I want, the belt", guarantees Alves, who’s rumored to fight Paulo Thiago, but didn’t want to reveal his the opponent. "I’ll fight at December 5… I have an opponent, but I can’t say yet".

Former UFC #1 welterweight contender looks to return to action after suffering a decision loss to the current champion George St. Pierre at UFC 100.  The Ultimate Fighter TUF 10 Finale is scheduled for December 5th if you were wondering, so there's a chance we could see Thiago Alves on Spike TV for free.  I wonder how his opponent will be?  A re-match with Koscheck sounds good to me, what say you?
