"I think it's huge for me and I have to make a statement," Belcher told Bleacher Report. "I have to prove that I deserve a big fight against one of the big-name guys—which I already have and I need to stay there. If I really want 2013 to be my run at the title, this is a great way to kick it off.

"I'm just looking for the "W" more than anything else, but I think my drive and my abilities right now are going to make it a very strong statement. If it's not a real clean win for me, it's just because Yushin Okami is a very good fighter. It could very well be a really hard win for me, but I'll do what it takes to get the "W" and I feel pretty confident about it.

"The only thing that has really held me back is my long lay-off. Then when I made my return, I took a long time between fights. After this last fight I had a broken hand and that injury kept me out for awhile.

"It's just been my long time in between fights. Why would they give somebody a chance to fight Anderson Silva who the fans don't really know, and that could go in there and take the belt from him? I have to prove that I'm able to fight more often and I have to let more fans know who I am. I have an underground fan base but that's about it."

Agreed. He's had a rough couple years, but people sleep on him. If he beats Okami, he deserves a big name opponent. Huge fan here... Phone Post

Been a fan of Belchers for a long time, glad to see him back after such a nasty eye injury. Thought he was done when Palhares got him on the ground but he did a GREAT job avoided the subs and finished the fight. I think if he finishes Okami ppl will take notice. Phone Post

He's great but his fanbase has suffered due to the long wait between fights. Personally I'm just happy to see him still fighting. That separated retina thing must have been fuckin frightening. Could have been the end of his career.

What do you think is the reason he's not well known, some kind of magic?

WestCoastMXC is right. You mad because he makes sense?

Belcher is a great fighter, hope he can get some popularity going and earn some cash for it.

You can be as great a fighter as you like, but you have to market yourself, if you want to earn the big bucks. Look at Jim Miller, then look at Chael Sonnen.

Yushin takes this by domination.

Just don't Think Alan Burper got what it takes to reach the top tier.

He needs a hype train or something behind him or a highlight reel fight to get his name more known. If you're just a really dangerous guy that isn't a common name, top 5 guys see it as a lose-lose. Phone Post

am I mad? Sorry guy I don't get mad about a post. And he is known by real fans,if you started watching mma 2 or 3 years ago then you might not know him. Your examples chael sonnen and Jim miller? When did you start watching this sport. Cmoner 11'er get it together
