Fans and UFC president Dana White want to see some superfights, but not middleweight Alan Belcher (18-6). His major concern is that the UFC is too focused on putting a superfight together that he won't be a part of.
"It is an interesting time right now," said Belcher to Bleacher Report. "I feel like the UFC is a little bit desperate to make big money fights, but I don't really fit into that category right now. It sucks, but we'll deal with that when it comes. Right now, I have to win this fight and then probably one or two more."
White has shown interest for years in an Anderson Silva (33-4) vs. Georges St-Pierre (23-2) fight, but has never been able to make it happen. With the dramatic rise of Jon Jones (17-1), his name has been thrown around as a possible superfight too.
Belcher will look for his fourth win in a row when he takes on Yushin Okami (27-7) at UFC 155 on December 29 out of the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. It will be the first time since 2009 that Belcher has fought at least twice in a year due to a serious eye injury.
