MMA NEWS | Belcher Confident On The Ground Against Palhares: “I May Submit Him” | UFC on FOX 3 Coverage

“I’m gonna use my strength, my strategy, not that I can’t grapple, but he can’t really strike that good. It’s a huge advantage for me just by keeping it on the feet. He’s gonna have to get me in one of those situations and I’m not gonna let that happen. Best of luck to him, I don’t think he’s gonna get a hold of me and do anything. I’m a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Some people might be surprised but I’ll give him a nice little run on the ground and may submit him.”

Alan “The Talent” Belcher tells that he is ready for a tough test against the fast rising Rousimar Palhares on the UFC on Fox 3 card.

Palhares has made a career out of submitting opponents, but Belcher hasn’t lost a match since 2009 and holds a black belt in BJJ of his own.

Who takes this fight Penn Nation?

    Alan I think that your best bet is to take it to the ground. He’s too powerful for you. Good luck.

    Will Ferrell, “Your fuckin high!” (stepbrothers)

  3. AK says:

    Alan”s best bet is to outbox him and mix it up with leg kicks torwards the end of the 2nd and continue in the 3rd round and back him up torwards the cage all fight..use his reach advantage…other than that WAR PALHAERES he makes me want to see legs ripped off.

  4. MattD. says:

    People count out Belcher waaaaaayyyyy too much.

  5. DewYouKnow8 says:

  6. Xaninho says:

  10. Bloodhound says:

    Alan is often counted out, but he also runs his mouth a bit too much, great Muay Thai and underrated Jiu-Jitsu but he really shouldn’t go to the ground, I’d rather he test Rousimar standing, but one thing about Belcher is you shouldn’t count him out, a healthy Alan is easily top 10 at Middleweight.

    Having said that WAR ROUSIMAR!!!

  12. Kristian says:

    Alan can beat him either way… After his legs get weak from leg kicks? Seriously? Standing or on the ground, Alan is the future middle weight champion…

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      I like Alan but really MW Champ? LOL Is this before or after Anderson Silva retires? Or is this after Hector Lombard takes his place as champ?

      • jonsey says:

        HECTOR will not evem be top 5…he could not even beat bisbitch….alan would kill hector and bisbing….alan does have good chance anderson will retire if he loses to sonnen….and maybe wven if he wins..that why he is taking a long time to fight and getting as many advertising paydays as possible..NIKE..BURGERKING,,AN THE CAR THING

        • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

          Dude, if you think Hector is a scrub it’s only because you don’t know what you are talking about. He would KO Bisping worse than Hendo did. As for Alan, he’d put up a good fight but would eventually succumb to a TKO.

    • jonsey says:

      are u his wife??? and u have ??? after statments,,,,, this (?) is a question mark…u put them after questions,,i think u want this (!!!)

  13. Puluzu says:

    Belcher used to be a fighter, but then he took a Palhares to the knee.

  14. Ricky Nunes says:

    Didn’t Kendall Grove put him to sleep with a D’arce choke? Well then Palhares is gonna put him in the morgue

  15. Jujitsu Player says:

    Stronger than Palhares? I doubt it the guy is a tank. As for submitting him, that’s just crazy talk….Palhares has one of the best BJJ games in MMA.
