Best MMA Fighter 2015 | Thiago Alves | Sports & Recreation | South Florida

Thiago Alves grew up training and fighting in muay thai but has since mastered all things MMA during his successful stint in the UFC. In his last fight this past January, Alves defeated Jordan Mein, in the process earning himself the UFC Performance of the Night award. Alves is expected to be asked to face some stiff competition this year in the UFC, as his past few performances have garnered him much more contender-for-the-belt consideration. Alves relocated from Brazil to Coconut Creek to train full-time at the worldwide-respected American Top Team camp and since doing so has seen his game catapult to the next level in mixed martial arts. An impressive 2014 turns to a 2015 full of promise for Alves.

Soccer is becoming more and more popular in South Florida, and with an MLS team possibly on the way to Miami in the near future, the sport will only continue to grow — which means you need a go-to place to watch the games. Set beautifully just off the Deerfield Beach shore, Bru's provides the perfect atmosphere to watch the game with the entire family. While Bru's might not be the dedicated-to-the-diehard-soccer-fan bar some competitors boast of, its setting, location, and atmosphere make it a little spot of heaven where you can enjoy the game, then head into the ocean. With hundreds of TVs covering other sports too, you won't miss a minute of the games — no matter how many are on at the same time.
