UFC on FX 2 Results: Thiago Alves Wants Martin Kampmann or Diego Sanchez Next

John HeinisSenior Analyst IOctober 27, 2016

After controlling the fight for 14 minutes, it seemed as if former UFC welterweight title challenger Thiago Alves was well on his way to victory against his always-tough Xtreme Couture opponent, Martin Kampmann. 

However, as "The Pitbull" won yet another exchange on the feet, he went for an ill-advised takedown where Kampmann was able to latch on a guillotine, which he continued to secure from the mount position as the fight hit the ground. 

Alves choices were clear: tap out or pass out, and the Brazilian chose the former. 

While the massive 170-pounder is understandably looking for some redemption, he has thrown another interesting name into the mix: Diego Sanchez

Early Sunday evening, Alves tweeted: 

 

 

While an immediate rematch with "The Hitman" is not impossible, after back-to-back wins over Rick Story and now Alves, it is likely Kampmann will get a top 10 opponent next. 

Prior to working his way back into the win column, Kampmann suffered consecutive, albeit controversial, losses, to Jake Shields and Sanchez. 

As for Alves, he is now just 2-3 since challenging UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre at UFC 100, losing to Jon Fitch, Story and now Kampmann during that time.
