"If I could fight the guys in the UFC in a Muay Thai fight, I think I would destroy them, it wouldn't even be close. I wouldn't have to hold back. But you've got to worry about the takedowns and stuff like that...I'm getting to the point where it's hard for anybody to take me down. I mean [Kang's] going to have to work really hard. If he's on his best day, his best performance, it's still going to be hard for him to take me down at all and then if he does then I've got a couple of tricks up my sleeve for him. You never know, I'm might slap a triangle or something on him."
-A confident Alan Belcher (13-5) talks to the Canadian Press about the grim chances former PRIDE and Spirit MC standout Denis Kang (31-10-1) has in their upcoming UFC middleweight bout at UFC 93: "Franklin vs. Henderson" at The O2 in Dublin, Ireland, on January 17. "The Talent" is fresh off a tough split-decision win over Ed Herman at UFC Fight Night 15 back in September. It was his third win in his last four attempts and a victory over Kang would do a lot to move him up the short list of middleweight contenders - and solidify some of his fairly bold claims.
