UFC middleweight Alan Belcher finally earned a spot in a UFC main event -- as well as his name on the corresponding poster -- only to lose them both after suffering a detached retina while training for his Sept. 2010 fight against Demian Maia.
"The Talent" has been on the shelf for several months while his eye healed and required multiple surgeries to fully correct his vision. Belcher's manager (via MMA Weekly) confirms the 185-pound contender has since resumed training back in January and is planning on fighting at some point this summer.
Who do you think should be Belcher's opponent in his return fight? Perhaps Maiquel Falcao, who recently pulled out of his UFC on Versus fight?
Let's hear your pick!
