Alan Belcher (18-7) pulls off his fourth straight UFC victory in front of the East Rutherford, Jersey crowd against the submission specialist Rousimar Palhares (14-4) on the network televised UFC on Fox card.
The king of heel hooks, Rousimar Palhares locked up his favorite submission time and time again, but may have just met his match on the ground. Belcher played in the dangerous guard for much of the bout as he attempted to bait Palhares into the rare Twister finish. He may have not completed the technical submission, but he was able to roll into top control to finish it with viscous ground and pound.
