UFC 283: Alves vs Dalby 01/21/2023 Odds
Warlley Alves (14-5, 8-5 UFC) kicked off his UFC career with a victory over Marcio Alexandre Jr in the finale of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3. From there, he strung up three straight wins: Alan Jouban, Nordine Taleb and Colby Covington. He would bump into two stumbling blocks in Bryan Barberena and Kamaru Usman, causing his career to take a sudden break. He would make his comeback in October 2017 with a win over Salim Touahri and follow it up with a technical knockout win over Sultan Aliev. After the victories, Alves would alternate losses and wins in his next five fights and in his last bout, he lost to Wells via knockout in the second round. The Brazilian has a combined 10 stoppage wins (four by KO and six by submissions), meaning that he can finish his opponents within the distance.

He fought to a no contest in his next bout against Jesse Ronson and came back with a win over Daniel Rodriguez. Dalby fell prey to Tim Means in his only bout in 2021 and would bounce back the following year against Claudio Silva. The Danish fighter is determined to win the encounter to resume his career in the UFC and improve on his status in the welterweight division. A win against Alves will be a good start this year in his campaign to contend in the weight class.
