SD: In a recent interview you did, you stated that you want to beat Rousimar by submission. Is it safe to assume that you'd like it to be a heel hook?

AB: [laughs] Oh, that would be so cool to get a foot lock or a heel hook or something like that. That'd be great, but you know, I think I'd just be very happy with a win. If I could chose a way to win, definitely, but I don't think I'm going to put myself in that situation, so that's probably not going to happen.

SD: Do you feel that you will be able to capitalize on your size advantage, and have you ever fought anyone as compact as Palhares?

AB: I actually have fought someone like that. Not in the UFC, it was before I got signed. They have their advantages and their weaknesses, just like I do. I feel comfortable though. I'd rather fight someone shorter and stockier than me, than someone taller.

read entire interview...

He was joking people. Calm down. He flat out said he wouldn't put himself in that position. He knows he'll lose a leg.

South Philly D - He was joking people. Calm down. He flat out said he wouldn't put himself in that position. He knows he'll lose a leg.


This is what I was thinking, do people even read these things or just comment after they make it all the way through the headline? I also like the fact that Belcher comes off as much more sane and likeable than the average mma competitor. He wasn't shittalking Paul Harris or anything, he was just answering questions honestly without all the pre fight hype bs thrown in. I've always liked Belcher, and this is one of many examples why.

THIS! He was joking, hence the [laughs] at the beginning. He goes  on to say that he won't be putting himself in that position too.

For the record, when I wrote this article, that was NOT the headline. It was changed after I submitted it.

To get into a position to heel hook, Belcher would be susceptible to a heel hook himself...

To go there against Rousimar would take huge balls. I think if Belcher had just lost a fight, he would go for it. He's on his comeback path... there's just too much on the line.

 People need to learn how to read past the headline. Good god he said he hopes not to be in the position to go for a heel hook. He knows it would leave him in a bad position with Palhares. Stop being fucking dense and learn to raed the interview before commenting.
