Thiago Alves Promises KO of GSP

There's been so much hype around the Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir rivalry at UFC 100 that I feel like the welterweight title fight between Georges St Pierre and Thiago Alves may be getting overlooked. GSP and Alves have shown nothing but respect for each other, and that's not what sells fights. But Alves did his best in talking to Ray Flores in the above video.

"Everyone's going to boo me and I'm just going to laugh," Alves said of his status as the underdog taking on one of the most popular fighters in MMA. "You guys are going to be clapping after I'm done because my hand's going to be raised. I'm going to make it happen."

Alves also offered this prediction for the fight: "I'm going to knock him out in the third round."
