It may seem hard to believe for old school MMA fans, but Thiago Alves is fast approaching on his tenth year of being a UFC employee…

Yup, “Pitbull” made his Octagon debut back in October, 2005, and was submitted by Spencer Fisher. It’s crazy how time flies.

Of course, since then, Alves has done his part to add memorable, highlight reel material to UFC’s video library, including his 2008, flying knee victory over Matt Hughes. You can watch it below.

Up next, Alves is set to fight fellow contender Carlos Condit at UFC FN 67 on May 30th.
