Rousimar Palhares is a simple man with a penchant for rearranging limbs.

Alan Belcher, on the other hand, happens to be content with the current aesthetics of his anatomy, thank you very much.

Belcher (17-6 MMA, 8-4 UFC) will attempt to maintain the status quo when he meets the submission specialist Palhares (14-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC) on the FOX-televised main card of UFC on FOX 3. The event takes place May 5 at IZOD Center in East Rutherford, N.J., and features a Jim Miller vs. Nate Diaz headliner.

"If he beats me, he's going to injure me," Belcher told MMAjunkie.com Radio. "So I think it's a little extra nerves going into it about actually damaging your health or something.

He could add it to the collection he has mounted on the wall above his bed.

i can see why Belcher might not be the favorite in some people's eyes, but for those who are writing him off as an easy win for Paul Harris, you have got another thing coming.

It's got the same tension about it as the Rousey vs. Tate fight (although Belcher has a much better shot than Tate did IMHO).
