"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."

Probably just an attempt to throw Palhares off his game.

I like the confidence. Nothing wrong with that. Submitting Palhares seems a little far fetched for him though

"I'm a black belt in BJJ"

So are Massenzio, Branch, and Linhares is a 3rd degree black belt.

This is like when Miesha Tate said she wasn't worried about the armbar.

Hard fight for me. I'm a huge fan of both Palhares and Belcher.

Saw Belcher fight at 107 in Memphis. His stand up is so freaking awesome! He may be a BJJ blackbelt, but his only chance is to keep this fight standing!

If it goes to the ground, Palhares by soul-bar!

 He's definitely the superior striker, but if Belcher knows better he'll avoid sitting on the sidelines again for months with another serious injury.

I could definitely see Belcher winning. Not by submission though. It'd be by superior striking. Phone Post

Honest to God, Palhares is perhaps the most frightening opponent in the UFC. Belcher mentioned in an MMAJunkie interview that Joe Silva told him nobody wants to fight Palhares, and I believe it.

Belcher obviously has confidence, but I can't believe that anybody who ends up rolling with Palhares in the Octagon is thinking anything other than "Watch my legs watch my legs watch my legs OH GOD HE HAS MY FOOT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT . . . ." Obsessing over the possibility ends up sucking you in--I think Miesha Tate had some of that going on against Rousey.

I have a certain admiration for the Nick Diaz-engage-where-he's-strongest mentality, but I such hope Belcher's plan isn't really to test his BJJ here. Keep it standing and out kickbox the guy.

I agree. Kendalls BJJ is no joke. It is really pretty good. Paul Harris has top level Jiu Jitsu though. That dude can hang with anyone on the planet on the ground. I see a snaped leg in the future.

Carne de cavalo é o melhor - "I'm a black belt in BJJ"

So are Massenzio, Branch, and Linhares is a 3rd degree black belt.

Stumpy eats black belts for breakfast.

also is the only to submit Ivan Salaverry and beat good grapplers in Jeremy Horn and Dan Miller on the ground. You can make an argument Palhares has the best grappling in mma
