Rumored middleweight opponents Vitor Belfort (21-9 MMA, 10-5 UFC) and Alan Belcher (18-6 MMA, 9-4 UFC) are now officially set to fight at UFC 153.
Belcher and Belfort will fight to determine who is in the high rankings of the middleweight division.
A spectacular finish may even advance the winner to a number one contender matchup, considering Tim Boetsch and Hector Lombard’s lackluster bout recently.
UFC 153 will take place at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro on Oct. 13, 2012.
UFC 153 includes:
Champion Jose Aldo vs. Erik Koch (for featherweight title)
Alan Belcher vs. Vitor Belfort
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. Glover Teixeira
Rony “Jason” Mariano Bezerra vs. Sam Sicilia
Cezar “Mutante” Ferreira vs. TBA
Sergio Moraes vs. Renee Forte
Reza Madadi vs. Cristiano Marcello
Let’s all hope injuries don’t change this card up.Tags: Alan Belcher, contender, featured, middleweight, rio de janeiro, ufc, UFC 153, Vitor Belfort
