We are almost to the the brawlers ball at UFC on FX 2: Alves vs. Kampmann and the headliners Thiago Alves and Martin Kampmann have sounded off on their plans for tomorrow night in Sydney, Australia.

He’s got good combinations, he’s real good standing. I think he’s definitely technical as well and it’s going to make for a great fight. I’m going to try to pick him apart, I’m going to stay away from those bombs. Sometimes I have a habit to start slugging out a little bit but not in this fight, I’m going to pick him apart.”

Alves has his own idea of what to expect from the ‘Hitman’ come Friday night.

I think he’s going to test his striking skills at first and everything but definitely, as soon as he gets hit, he’s going to shoot for a takedown. I’ve found the old ‘Pitbull’ that was sleeping inside of me. But now he’s out there, he’s hungry and he can’t wait to perform in Sydney.”
