Thiago Alves vs. Rick Story Expected for May 2011 UFC Event

Thiago AlvesFresh off successful trips to the Octagon earlier this month, rising welterweights Thiago Alves and Rick Story will look to move closer to a shot at the 170-pound title currently held by Georges St-Pierre when they likely clash at a May 2011 UFC event, according to MMAWeekly.

Fueled by a new diet, Alves (19-6) returned to contender form and rebounded from back-to-back losses with a unanimous decision over John Howard at UFC 124, while Story (12-3) topped Johny Hendrick at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale for his fifth-straight win.

The Alves-Story matchup will likely go down at the UFC’s traditional Memorial Day weekend event on May 28 in Las Vegas, which is expected to be UFC 130 or UFC 131.
