That was unexpected.

You never can tell.

Good on you Alan.

I’d much rather see belcher vs silva than sonnen. Great performance here

this frog pos video player sucks frog fkin ass. i can honestly say out of the 1000 videos i have watched on mmatko i have never had a good experience with this frog fuker. idk what country the s*** is from but am amazed its still in business. either it works better in other countries or the locals who use it dont know better

Bruno: They are the youtube of Portugal. They are one of the last players that don’t take vids down right away. Once they go down I will not be posting vids on fight night again.

Very impressive win by Alan! He wasn’t afraid to play footsies with Palhares and nearly pulled out a twister!! Well done!!

Buster Hymen Says, in 5-5-2012 at 22:58:02 from    

Bruno: Thanks a millions you always deliver!

I was so stoke to see Belcher win! I have not like Paul Harris since I watched him shred legs in BJJ worlds. The guy is an animal.

marvelous mad madam mim Says, in 5-5-2012 at 23:01:33 from    

hey man yea i appreciate the posts and most times the vids will load(sometimes I gotta leave the room and let it buffer for couple minutes) but tonight the s*** is just clogged lol. i just tried to watch the diaz fight and it was actually playing smooth right off the bat but then stopped buffering like 3 minutes in. peace

Bruno: I think it comes down to which server you get. The vids a better and much faster when I am in Europe but just so-so in the US. It is getting so there is no other choices to post vids. Within the next hour someone will have the whole event posted on http://tehparadox.com/forum/f73/

Thank you so much Belchar for debunking the most undeserved hype train in MMA.

Great display of ground skills too.

pillowhands Says, in 5-5-2012 at 23:13:23 from    

I’ve always thought Belcher was underated and on any given day beat anyone in his weight class.

hond2dciv Says, in 5-5-2012 at 23:32:20 from    


God I hate Palhares. So glad that thug got pounded.

russiandoeboi Says, in 5-5-2012 at 23:37:55 from    

wow, belcher is great . Almost any others who think they can follow this blueprint against Palhares will lose

russiandoeboi Says, in 5-5-2012 at 23:40:12 from    

what’s everyone got against Palhares. I don’t care – just wondering is it cause he’s not american, not tall, not a striker, too hairy?

Grape Soda Says, in 5-5-2012 at 23:41:46 from    

Palhares is feared because most MMA guys don’t work leg locks enough. Belcher has underrated BJJ, his ground game is plenty strong enough to withstand roid monkey and his leg locks.

eucanlykthis Says, in 5-6-2012 at 00:28:42 from    

@ hahahahaha… Although I respect Palhares as a fighter im still not a big fan of his due to constant link to controversy in fights. But to say “So glad that dumb ass brazo got his ass wooped!!” is just racist, your comment should be removed and you should be banned from offering your ignorant opinions. And i think you mean “whooped”, not “wooped”. Dumbass. Btw…wow…I thought belcher would lose his ability to walk for sure.

BelcherFTW Says, in 5-6-2012 at 01:09:24 from    

Wow, that was great esp agianst a guy whos on PEDS..amazing, good jj match

PatrickN Says, in 5-6-2012 at 01:42:39 from    

if he trained at 10th planet he would have finished the twister for sure

mma made easy Says, in 5-6-2012 at 01:53:31 from    

WOW! Belcher keeps impressing me.

bob hopeless Says, in 5-6-2012 at 01:56:28 from    

that was exciting!

thanks bruno!!

tesla Says, in 5-6-2012 at 02:03:13 from    

Palhares got OWNED! War belcher! Once Palhares realized that belchar wanted to fight on the ground and was trying to submit him, he lost his mojo and looked scared. It’s called MMA and palhares obviously forgot how to defend strikes since he’s always so wrapped up in his BJJ games.

Love seeing one dimensional fighters get stomped out in the first round.

ruddo293 Says, in 5-6-2012 at 04:20:19 from    

He’s only shot is that heel hook…. once he can’t pull that off, he gasses and he get’s beat. No different from Nate Marquart fight.. He needs to learn a new game plan besides that one submission. Good for him, he deserved to get knocked out.

mmafan Says, in 5-6-2012 at 10:45:31 from    

Very impressed with Belcher…I’m a fan. Hope he keeps his run going and doesnt have a setback anymore and gets a title shot. This guy is entertaining, talented and underrated.
War Belcher!

howe Says, in 5-6-2012 at 13:32:36 from    

I think that was not a twister attempt but a “groin lock”. Look on youtube for “Banana split submission” (i have no idea where they got that name from). That was invented (as far as I know) from Nino Schembri (his version has adjustments but basically it’s the same), who actually is a close friend (and from the same school) as Soneca, Belchior’s master. Nino pulled that one on Muzio de Angelis at a championship and since he didn’t know it, he didn’t tap, and as result, he got almost crippled and left the gymnasium on the stretcher.

bjj…! Says, in 5-6-2012 at 13:33:40 from    

the guys that are saying that Palhares bjj consist of heel hook and leg locks only have no idea what they are talking about. Yes he made a mistake, and he should work on a different strategy. Before the fight everyone was saying that he was amazing, now everyone is saying that he sucks, people tend to generalize things. He is a great fighter. Not counting the marquardt fight which was bullshit cuz palhares had stopped fighting because of the judge, his last defeat was in 2008 on unanimous decision to hendo. Palhares is at the top of the division, no doubt about that

anakonda Says, in 5-6-2012 at 14:29:50 from    

Have to say the same: very impressed with Belcher!

Thxer Says, in 5-6-2012 at 15:58:50 from    

Belcher has had real good BJJ for a while now, and was on a roll before his eye injury. I’ve never like taquino simply because of his specialty, leg locks usually result in bad injuries.

Awesome win for Belcher!

KungFuLowKick Says, in 5-6-2012 at 16:24:40 from    

He should’ve punched him a couple more times and make the ref pull him off for all the times he didn’t let go maybe make him dumber then he already is.

mmaboxingfan2 Says, in 5-6-2012 at 17:13:00 from    

I was worried for belchers limbs for a bit lol. Alan for some reason looked smaller at the weigh ins.

Reallynow? Says, in 5-6-2012 at 18:48:52 from    

Palhares isnt at the top its because other fighters cant react to his strategy and strength. He’s already exposed and you’ll see his downfall now. One trick pony. Remember Thales? He’s not even heard of now. Yet he made it to the top with his style of bjj and was made to look like a fool against silva. It will not work now days, though it’s important to learn…one ASPECT will not do it.

Cro Cop Fan Says, in 5-6-2012 at 18:50:06 from    

I was very impressed with Belcher in this fight

rtorres7794 Says, in 5-6-2012 at 19:17:04 from    

“Dan… Dan… Fox Sports is proud to partner with…” Loved it.

rtorres7794 Says, in 5-6-2012 at 19:25:46 from    

“Pow.. Pow.. Pow”. Alan impressed me a while back when his hair was longer (I won’t lie, I don’t remember which fight it was). Awesome performance, dude’s so damn confident in all areas of the game

BamBam Says, in 5-6-2012 at 19:46:47 from    

Booooooooooooooommmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!that was amazing!!!!!Alan is sooooooo underrated!!!!top opponent for him next Dana douche!!!!!

ctimboden Says, in 5-6-2012 at 20:47:01 from    

that was easily one of the best damn fights ive seen in a while. i know what the next gracie breakdown is gonna be

Survival Lobby Says, in 5-6-2012 at 22:49:15 from    

Did Belcher just claim to be the “baddest man in mma on the ground”?

Dr. Says, in 5-7-2012 at 00:17:31 from    

Hell yeah, Belcher!!! Great victory.

mmafan400 Says, in 5-7-2012 at 12:38:04 from    

It was definitely a twister attempt, and he tried a banana split but palhares was too flexible. Belcher played with fire, he may think he’s the man on the ground, but palhares is far better than him, he just gassed and hasn’t quite translated it to MMA

bernie Says, in 5-7-2012 at 23:40:08 from    

It goes to show you can erase all the BJJ a person knows with elbows to their face.

mscash Says, in 5-8-2012 at 14:31:04 from    

Belcher’s victory is not unexpected from my point of view. Belcher comes to fight, and yes I know all fighters come to fight, but Belcher is willing to take the fight where it goes.

Belcher clearly didn’t try to step out of or complete a full escape stand-up position kicking Palhares in his ass and thighs.

I don’t create gifs, but one needs to be posted here @ Bruno’s. And make it complete with the sound I heard … solid connection …

Thanks for the vid ups Bruno.

mscash Says, in 5-8-2012 at 14:38:46 from    

Oh yeah, of Belcher getting G-n-p elbowed head flat to the mat.

Swordsmansmith Says, in 5-8-2012 at 15:42:53 from    

Until Palhares rounds out his skills hes stuck. He’ll destroy lower ranked guys but top guys are too much for him.

jches Says, in 5-9-2012 at 01:40:21 from    

Wow!!! Now that was impressive. I’ve never seen Belcher look that good. His BJJ has gone through the roof to stay down there like that with Palhares. Belcher has definitely upped his game. Awesome fight!
