Alan “The Talent” Belcher,
“I want to fight Wanderlei Silva. And I think he needs to fight someone like me, a top young guy, to really stay in the mix. He needs to do that to stay a legit fighter and not just a legend selling pay-per-views because he has a name. He has to fight me to stay up there. I feel I’m better than him. Wanderlei definitely poses a threat because he hits hard, is aggressive and has good conditioning, but at this point, I am more technical, well-rounded and I can beat him in any part of the game. I’m not saying it will be an easy fight, but I believe I can beat him and I’m ready to let the fans see what they want to see and prove that I’m that caliber. I want to make myself a legend off of this fight.” [MMAFighting]
Belcher is looking to rebound with a bang after a detached retina threatened to end his career earlier this year.
