“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 CouchFighter.com 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.
