Alan Belcher Recovering From Further Eye Surgery
By FCF Staff UFC middleweight Alan Belcher is recovering from another operation to repair the detached retina in his right eye, which forced him out of his scheduled September 15th bout with Demian Maia. According to posts made by Belcher’s wife Ashlee, on his official Twitter page, the coming weeks are vitally important in the fighter’s recovery.
Here are some of the posts that appeared today and yesterday on Belcher’s Twitter account:

Belcher (16-6) has impressed in recent Octagon competition and a win over Maia may have left the talented striker within grasp of a title shot. In May, Belcher tapped out former number one contender Patrick Cote in the second round, to extend his UFC record to 7-4. The 26 year-old-fighter has only lost once in his last five fights, which was a tightly contested Split Decision loss to Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 100 last summer.
