Will be a good ass fight. Belcher has great stand up. We'll be able to measure a lot of what Kang brings to the table in this fight.

Gosh that would be a tuff first fight right now for Kang.... Especially if Belcher can add a 5% improvement to his overall skills

This is an interesting match
If Kang is smart hell take Belcher down and hell have his way with him on the ground
if it stays standing Kang has a chance of Tkoing belcher but on the same token Belcher can certainly KO Kang
for Kangs first fight in the UFC he needs to play it safe, take down belcher and submit him

if it stays standing anything can happen

Good first match for Kang, Belcher isnt ready for a fighter like Kang.

i can't wait to see kang in the ufc. i think belcher is a good test for his first fight. i do think kang will be to fast and athletic for him though.

Perfect fight to introduce Kang to the UFC. Kang will probably be able to display the well-rounded skill-set he brings to the table. Kang could finish it on the ground, but he doesn't typicallytake it to the ground unless he takes a few hard shots standing up. Kang has really fast heavy hands so I expect to see him use them early and often enroute to a TKO.

This is a good match up for Kang, and for belcher as well. Kang can make a great debut. Or Belcher can knock off a guy a lot of poeple thi8nk is very good.
