Alan ”The Talent” Belcher came to Tiger Muay Thai and MMA training camp, Phuket, Thailand in 2007 to prepare for his UFC bout against Ed Herman. Showcasing superior Muay Thai, Belcher won a unanimous decision while wearing the Tiger Muay Thai logo on his walkout T-shirt and Banner. Currently 8-4 in the UFC with a 3 fight winning streak, a win over ‘Paul Harris’ will position him near the top for an opportunity at Anderson Silva.
Rousimar Palhares is a member of the Brazilian Top Team, and before the announcement of this bout was scheduled to be conducting a grappling seminar and training camp at Tiger Muay Thai in April. Delaying his visit to Southeast Asia, Palhares will first look to get past Alan Belcher before finalizing the schedule of his upcoming MMA seminar at Tiger Muay Thai with former UFC Champion Murilo Bustamante.
An exciting matchup between striker and grappler, this out will be showcased on FOX as the UFC returns to the premier network for sports entertainment.
