Combat Corner Professional Alan "The Talent" Belcher Set to Avenge First UFC Loss and Extend Win Streak to Five Straight
Back in August of 2006 Alan “The Talent” Belcher made his UFC debut at UFC 62 in a three round war that found him on the wrong end of a Unanimous Decision to Yushin Okami. Shortly after this loss, Alan started training with Duke Roufus in 2007 and since has become one of the top contenders in the UFC’s middleweight division. Belcher is currently riding a four fight win streak which includes his impressive TKO over Rousamir Palhares in the very first round in his most recent fight. After six years from their first meeting in the octagon Alan Belcher looks to avenge his first loss and again faces Yushin Okami. Belcher is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a first degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, a black belt in Duke Roufus Kickboxing, a brown belt in Hayastan grappling, and a brown belt in Judo; with Belcher’s diverse skill set Okami will have his hands full wherever the fight goes. I recently spoke with Alan and here’s what he had to say, “I am a totally different fighter now then I was six years ago. This fight will be just as much about proving that to myself as well as advancing my streak.” On Saturday December 29th at UFC 155 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, “The Talent” will once again step into the cage with Okami and looks to prove that in six years’ time he has progressed to be a top level martial artist, and extending his win streak to five straight should get him one step closer to a title shot.
