It sure looked like for certain that Thiago Alves and Diego Sanchez would meet in the octagon at UFC 89 in Birmingham, England on October 18; however, according to Damon Martin of MMAWeekly, the pair have been moved to UFC 90, which was announced by the UFC to take place on October 25 in Chicago, IL.  Originally, Alves and Sanchez were to be part of the co-main event at UFC 89, but the promotion decided to push up the light heavyweight bout between Thiago Silva and Lyoto Machida as the other co-main event along with the Michael Bisping-Chris Leben fight.  It now appears that Alves and Sanchez will be part of the main event at UFC 90, although no other bouts have been announced as of this writing.
