MMAJunkie is reporting, Thiago Alves will likely be fighting Ryo Chonan at UFC 78 on Nov. 17 in Newark, New Jersey.
Pride Veteran Ryo Chonan will be making his first ever appearance in the octagon after signing with the UFC last month. Chonan is best known for his defeat of current UFC Middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva.
Alves is coming off a impressive submission victory over Kuniyoshi Hironaka at UFC Fight Night 11. His always attack style makes him extremely fun to watch.
