According to Teammate, Alan Belcher Given Medical Clearance to Fight; Expects to Return to the Octagon by Summer
Alan Belcher has been hinting for a while with tweets like the one above that he will soon be returning to the UFC.
"The Talent" has been sidelined since sustaining a career-threatening partially detached retina last summer while training for his UFN 22 bout with Demian Maia, but according to one of his Remix MMA students he has been given the OK by his eye specialist to compete once again and is eyeing (no pun intended) a May or June return to the Octagon.
Here’s what amateur fighter Rodney Derouen said about the situation on MixedMartialArts.com’s Underground forum today:
A Maia redo or a scrap with Bisping both sound good to me. Discuss.
