UFC's Pitbull Alves

Doctor Says

I'm Clear to Fight

5/26/2010 4:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UFC hurt-machine Thiago "Pitbull" Alves underwent some intense medical tests yesterday -- and they went so well, he got the green light from his doctor to get back in the Octagon ... just 2 months after brain surgery.

UFC's Pitbull Alves
Sources close to Alves tell TMZ Pitbull had an angiogram yesterday morning -- a post-operation procedure that took several hours -- but the results were good.

We're told Alves' doctor is currently sending a letter to the New Jersey Boxing Commission declaring him physically fit to fight. Alves has told us in the past that he wants to get back in the ring ASAP.

The whole thing is truly amazing, considering Alves went under the knife in March, so doctors could perform a procedure that would prevent bleeding in his brain.

I agree for the most part it is boring. They should not allow the rolling round doing submission holds. It should be punching, kicking, kneeing and elbowing only and they should be split up when they hold.

Lace Front Wigs are the newest hair trend.http://www.rpgshow.com Worn by celebrities such as Tyra Banks, Kim Kardashian, Beyonce Knowles and others, lace front wigs are becoming very popular and can be very expensive. Because lace front wigs are made with remy hair, this causes the wig to be pricey and not cheap. http://www.rpgshow.com/lace-wigs-c-9.html
