Now that the dust has settled on UFC 111, we can finally ask ourselves, “So is Thiago Alves dying or what?” The welterweight contender gave us quite a scare on Thursday when he was forced to pull out of his match against Jon Fitch due to an “irregularity in his brain,” which was spotted by a pre-fight CAT Scan. The condition was reported as potentially career-ending, but luckily that doesn’t seem to be that case. Alves will undergo a minor outpatient surgery this Wednesday to address the issue, and hopes to make his return to the Octagon in May, if not sooner. Dana White confirmed the improved prognosis, telling TMZ, “He’ll be back…it’s all good.”
