Roberts: Pretty Good Chance Smith is Moving to Welterweight

Mike Robert says of his Strikeforce's middleweight ward, Scott Smith: He is most likely to bid 185 goodbye soon.

The Monday edition of The MMA Hour revealed that Smith is giving a drop-down to welterweight a good chance. Although the “Hands of Steel” has fought as a light heavyweight before, he has never come on to the cage as a welterweight. But Roberts is seriously considering the matter as well:

“The funny thing is that we were in San Diego for the Mark Munoz and James Irvin’s fight, and he was walking around at at around 189 pounds right now. And that’s not really super working out hard or nothing. So I believe there’s a pretty good chance he’ll be down at 170 for his next fight.”

Smith’s record went 5-3 with one contest following his release from the UFC. His most popular win to date was his “come-from-behind victory” over Cung Le. But his latest loss was also suffered from Le in a rematch staged by Strikeforce.

Welterweight is considered to be Strikeforce’s weakest, and its champion Nick Diaz has not been paired up with as many good contenders yet.

Fitch dominated the fight against Alves.

UFC 117 took the Saturday with a bang. And John Fitch made himself known, just like any other day in UFC. He took down Thiago Alves over and over again. Grinding him and winning the match with unanimous victory.
Fitch is winning by unanimous decisions in his last five fights and has made himself 2nd Welterweight in MMA behind only the champion Georges St. Pierre.

John Fitch has taken Alves on the first sole minute of the round and as it appeared, he has total control on the latter. Grinding is easier for Filch but Alves was indeed great when he got on top of Fitch and then standing back up with a minute and a half. But Alves didn’t stand up often and Fitch just finished the round by knocking down Alves for the second time.
