Pic: Alan Belcher Eye Poke Gets Eight Stitches After UFC 159.

Alan Belcher continues with the eye injury updates from his official Twitter.com account, providing a pic of lacerated lid that required eight stitches to fix after Michael Bisping accidentally poked him in the third and final round of their UFC 159 co-main event this past weekend. "The Talent," who was unable to continue, went on to drop a technical decision to "The Count." The good news is that injury, which you can watch happen here, was not more serious. A very close call, considering his 2010 surgery to correct a detached retina in the same eye, one that nearly ended his MMA career.

You wanted it? You got it. After initially being rumored yesterday when both Alan Belcher and Vitor Belfort called each other out and tentatively accepted a fight against each other, the UFC made it official for UFC 153 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, later this October. Both "The Phenom" and "The Talent" are coming off some solid wins in the middleweight division and are looking to move up the ladder. What's your first impression on this stellar matchup?

Michael Bisping responded to Alan Belcher's recent harsh comments (in which Belcher called Bisping "an asshole" and "bad for the sport"), while speaking with Fighters Only: "Yeah really original," he said of Belcher’s comments. "I suppose he thinks he can get back in the mix by calling me out. But if he wants an easy fight he should sue his tattooist for that abomination on his arm. I know Belcher has vision problems right now but we still have to look at that mess. "He’s got a lot of nerve calling me an a--hole when he walks round with that on him. Although lets be fair, the real a--hole is the tattooist who drew that." Photo: UFC.com

Michael Bisping responds to Alan Belcher calling him out, saying "The Talent's" tattoo artist, who inked his infamous Johnny Cash tattoo, is the real asshole: "I suppose he thinks he can get back in the mix by calling me out. But if he wants an easy fight he should sue his tattooist for that abomination on his arm. I know Belcher has vision problems right now but we still have to look at that mess. He’s got a lot of nerve calling me an a--hole when he walks round with that on him. Although lets be fair, the real a--hole is the tattooist who drew that." Quote via Fighter's Only magazine.

UFC middleweight contender Alan Belcher expects to be back in action in 2011. His doctors say he should be able to resume contact training in January. But it was a very close call. From MMA Weekly : ""It was actually kind of sporadic, but the doctor he’s not really sure if it was one blow or what, but for some reason I had some tears in my retina and it caused it to detach. I didn’t even realize anything was happening until I was down in Brazil training for the Demian Maia fight, and then all of a sudden just lost most of my vision in my eye," Belcher told MMAWeekly.com on Wednesday. Not realizing the severity of the injury right away, Belcher ended up extending his stay in Brazil, although in retrospect he fully admits that was a mistake. Once he set foot back on American soil, he had to be rushed in right away for surgery on the injury that had career-ending potential. "I came back and had to have emergency surgery," Belcher commented. "I had the first surgery and then it detached again about 5 weeks later, and I had to have another surgery."
