[B]Rios>Alvarado though Alvarado will be a live dog.... Don't do on the fence though so I'm going with Rios... Alvarado chances really increase if he abandons that shoulder roll and doesn't make a drastic change to what he did last…

[QUOTE=MeanestNiceGuy;13191573]Again, Rios looks drained. Does he look as bad as hell looks any other time? Nope. He did look a bit healthier the last time they fought. I didn't see any stress or trauma in his face, like I do…

Rios doesn't look too good to me here. Hope he isn't having weigh issues again, doesn't matter since he might get either Pac or JMM at 147 if he comes through Alvarado.

Rios always looks so drained,but then he always pulls off the win..Guess it works for him..

Last time i saw rios emaciated like that, he lost to Abril....Should be a great fignt, but if Alvarodo fights smart, he could pull off the upset!
