UFC on FOX 3 takes place May 5 at IZOD Center in East Rutherford, N.J. The main card, including a Jim Miller vs. Nate Diaz headliner, airs on FOX, and prelims are expected to air on FUEL TV.

Belcher recently returned from a 16-month layoff due to an initially career-threatening eye surgery/recovery and picked up a vicious first-round submission win (due to punches) over Jason MacDonald. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and explosive striker is now 5-1 over his past six fights.

Like Belcher, Palhares also carries a three-fight win streak. Most recently, he used a trademark heel hook to submit Mike Massenzio at UFC 142 in Brazil. Aside from a brief mental lapse that prompted a loss to Nate Marquardt in 2010, the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt in undefeated in his past seven fights.

Plahares spoke confidently with about the fight.

“I’ll be a great fight. I’m going to fight and I’m going to win, I’ll work a lot to nail it. His game plan will be like the others, he will try to stand-up. I’ve been training a lot my striking, but my ground game is where my real game is. I never stop training it”.

“I’m just focused on winning. We’ll see what happens next. Who knows… I think about the fight. Before beating up one guy I don’t think about the next one. I think one thing at a time”.

I'll eat crow I guess, I said Palhares would sub him in the first, I was wrong. However I think both those guys are so dangerous and capable on the ground either one of them could find a finish on a given day.

War Belcher, he is a true contender and derailed the Harris hype train. That was much needed as the hype was getting to the point of ridiculous with all the leg taking lines leading up to this one. I too called this one :)
