Alan Belcher is one of the top contenders in the UFC middleweight division and could be one or two more wins away from receiving a title shot.
Malki Kawa is Belcher’s manager and he has been teasing on Twitter for the past two weeks that he is working on a big fight for his fighter.
Belcher (18-6) is currently on a four fight winning streak and has won a fight night bonus in four of his last six fights. His most recent victory came at UFC on FOX 3 against Rousimar Palhares, which he won in the first round by TKO.
Now, Belcher has gone to Twitter to say he wants to fight Vitor Belfort at UFC 153 in Brazil.
I will fight anyone.although I want to fight someone who will challenge me!I want to fight @vitorbelfort in his home country in October #UFC
Belcher is asking his fans to tell UFC President Dana White and UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta that they want to see this fight happen. If this fight were to happen in Brazil at UFC 153, it’s likely that it would be the co-main event on the fight card. The UFC announced last week that the main event would be Jose Aldo defending his UFC featherweight title against Erik Kock.
Should Belfort accept the fight against Belcher or is there another fight that makes more sense for him?
