UFCThe Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S.-based mixed martial arts organization, recognized as the largest MMA promotion in the world. The UFC is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and is owned and operated by Zuffa, LLC. This promotion is responsible for solidifying the sport's postion in the history-books.
UFC is currently undergoing a remarkable surge in popularity, along with greater mainstream media coverage. UFC programming can now be seen on FOX, FX, and FUEL TV in the United States, as well as in 35 other countries worldwide.
After defeating Ed Herman at UFC Fight Night 15, Alan Belcher will be back to the UFC at January 17th, when the UFC 93 arrives at Dublin, Ireland, and the fighter has a Brazilian coach helping in his preparation for the combat. “We trained a lot for this fight. Alan is a person who learns very quickly, has an excellent Muay Thai and a good Jiu-Jitsu, and we adapted that for the MMA. He’s a very talented person, like his nickname already says (“The Talent”)”, said Israel Gomes, leader of Killer Bees Team at California, United States.
Against Denis Kang, who makes his debut in UFC, Belcher will have a difficult work, but his coach guarantees that the American is ready. “He’s in a very good routine of training, physical preparation, sparrings with many different persons… We’re traveling a lot, making trains foreign, and we had the help of many people, like Rich Clementi, Hélio “Soneca”, Parizzi... He’s very prepared for Denis Kang”, guarantees Israel, who won’t be able to be at Belcher’s corner for the fight, because he’ll also fight at the same night, in Cage Fight – New Years Knockout, at Alabama.
“I’m very confident with Alan’s victory, mine and of Rodrigo Vidal’s, who’ll fight in the same event of me and is also helping in Alan’s preparation. We’re very satisfied with the preparation”, revealed Israel, celebrating the good phase of the team in USA. “Since I started to train we made 20 fights and we only lost one in the decision… The result of my work here is appearing, I am very satisfied and after this fights I come back to California and inaugurate a seat of Killer Bees there”, counts the black belt, in the support for the friend and ex-partner of Chute Boxe, Maurício “Shogun”, who also fights in UFC 93. “I wish all luck for the Brazilians who are in UFC 93 and I’m cheering for Shogun’s victory”, finished.
Belcher is a much better fighter then people give him credit for. His main problem in his last fight was his cardio which he can hopefully work out. I think he can keep this fight on its feet and make Kang wilt from his strikes.
