Alan Belcher recounts his impressive victory over Rousimar Palhares, asks for title shotPosted on May 6, 2012, 08:29 PM by Mike Drahota
Alan Belcher explains the tactics he used to best Rousimar Palhares at UFC on Fox 3 last night, stating that he wanted to control the distance from his dangerous opponent. While it looked like he may be put into one of Palhares's well-known leglocks, Belcher in fact almost reversed the attempts into a Twister submission of his own, and ultimately gained the stoppage via strikes. The win was no doubt impressive, where does it place Alan Belcher in the UFC Middleweight division after four wins in a row? Can he beat the top-level Middleweights, and does he deserve a shot at the crown?
