    Lol…. Belcher is a Muay Thai retard calling out bjj retards??? maybe he is just a retard???

      Your comment is low-class. Critique the fighter for his game, not for his being. I met Alan and his wife. Nice people. I doubt you would say that to his face. If you can’t say something to someone’s face, don’t type it.

        this is a typical comment for gargoyle…troll that thinks he’s funny. you typically must read a lot of crap to see if he really has a useful comment and usually there isn’t one.

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          You’re just too stupid to understand the underlying humor and genius of my comments…Perhaps it could be you dude. Have you ever thought about that? Can you look in the mirror and ask yourself why you get your panties in a wad so easily?…Could also mean that I am just a prick??!!

        • allmightysandman says:

          no I’m not stupid actually. you’re a douche, that’s all, and not nearly as funny as you think you are.
          you talk a lot of shit and the odd relevant or thoughtful post you make…and I’ll admit you seem to have a fair bit of knowledge once in a while…are not worth reading because there is so much juvenile crap to wade through first. it’s a waste that you don’t add much to any conversations, you mostly troll.
          …and I’d suggest that yes, you are a prick.

        I know Alan…and I have said it to his face…and you are right he is a nice guy. That is main problem as a fighter.

    Good on Alan for having a go. Though that tattoo of Kim Jong Il still confuses me haha

  3. SaulTheGiant says:

    And that’s awkward because he is a muay thai guy but he is trained in BJJ by the great Helio Soneca, who is also my professor. And Soneca is no joke in the BJJ game! Maybe Belcher needs some more BJJ training and competitions in the US before venturing in Brazil again. I support Soneca and Belcher 100%.

  4. Jay Turner says:

    Hey guys he went and fought some of the best bjj fighters in the world. He did not lose anything he learned a lot. My hats off to you. Keep on rolling

  5. alan says:

    Seems to me he got submitted by a few bjj world champs, and there is definitely nothing dishonoable or embarrassing about that. Much respect for Belcher for putting it on the line against the best of the best in bjj, remember he is an MMa fighter not a sports bjj competitor.
