Matt Hughes vs Thiago Alves Set for UFC 85 Main Event

After the recent news of Chuck Liddell tearing his hamstring and not being able to participate in his fight at UFC 85 with Rashad Evans(Chuck was replaced by James Irvin). Former welterweight champ Matt Hughes has announced on his website at that a fight with Thiago Alves is scheduled for UFC 85 in London on June 7 will now be the main event.


June 7th, in England, I fight Thiago Alves. The fight is confirmed, it will be the main event for the card. Dana just called me with the news. Chuck got hurt and couldn’t fight, so he needed a replacement and called me and I said yes. More news as I get it. No matter what happens in this fight, I’ve got Serra next. -matt

Good matchup, Alves showed some good takedown defense in his fight with Karo, but stopping a Hughes shot will be difficult.
