Coming off the heels of last night’s Josh Koscheck vs. Johny Hendricks announcement, Dana White revealed another fight for the UFC on FOX 3 show today. Alan Belcher will take on Rousimar Palhares in what looks to be a classic striker vs. grappler match-up.
Palhares commented on the match-up over at Tatame.
“I’ll be a great fight. I’m going to fight and I’m going to win, I’ll work a lot to nail it”, said the student of Murilo Bustamante, believing that Belcher will try to keep the fight on their feet. “His game plan will be like the others’ (who fought me), he will try to stand-up. I’ve been training a lot my striking, but my ground game is where my real game is. I never stop training it”.
With this latest addition the UFC on FOX 3 main card is shaping up to look like this.
- Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller
- Pat Barry vs. Lavar Johnson
- Josh Koscheck vs. Johny Hendricks
- Alan Belcher vs. Rousimar Palhares
Good fights, but will it make for good ratings?
