Belcher: I may submit Palhares


"I feel honored the UFC family wanted me to be on [the FOX] card and believed in my abilities and show the fans that I'm gonna be a champ. I'm one of the top contenders and I'm ready to prove it. I'd be stupid to try and force a grappling match. I'm gonna use my strength, my strategy, not that I can't grapple, but he can't really strike that good.

It's a huge advantage for me just by keeping it on the feet. He's gonna have to get me in one of those situations and I'm not gonna let that happen. Best of luck to him, I don't think he's gonna get a hold of me and do anything. I'm a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Some people might be surprised but I'll give him a nice little run on the ground and may submit him."

The problem is that Palhares swings bolos in order to close distance. He doesn't stay in striking range longer than is necessary to clinch. So a striker would end up fighting going backwards. Even Hendo ended up backpedaling like crazy....
