Losing to Alan Belcher was not something that ever crossed my mind. Perhaps that is why I lost; I did not respect his ability to beat me. I truly believed that it was going to be a two-minute fight — that I would take him down, and pound him out or submit him.

I didnt like this guy before the Evans fight and I don't like him now...I dont mean to fighter bash, but it seems like since his first fight, he has thought that since he was a good athlete in college than he will be a dominate fighter in the UFC and he has really not respected anyone elses game...I'm glad he can't get a win!

I mostly just don't like him because he looks like lurch from the adams family. His flying karate kick in the evans fight also made me laugh.

I'm glad Alan was able to get another fight after the kendall loss. I have trained with Alan before he has a lot of talent and drive. And its cool to see a home town kid on the card.
