Sixteen months is a long time for anyone to wither away on the sidelines. For 27-year-old UFC middleweight Alan Belcher, it must have seemed like an eternity. Sporting an aggressive brand of Muay Thai striking, Belcher is the epitome of a kid in a candy store when it comes to fighting, eagerly waiting to brutalize his next victim.
After suffering a detached retina and undergoing subsequent eye surgery, Alan Belcher spent 16 months on the sidelines, slowly rehabilitating and working towards a return to action. He finally made his way back last night (Sept. 17) at UFC Fight Night 25 against Jason MacDonald and made the most of it with a huge win.
