Belfort/Belcher Slated for UFC 153

Two top-10 middleweights will collide at UFC 153: Rio

Today it was confirmed that two top-10 middleweight fighters will collide in October at UFC 153. Former light heavyweight UFC champion Vitor Belfort will faceoff against a surging Alan Belcher. Belcher is 4-0 in his last four UFC fights, the gem of those four being a first round TKO finish of Rousimar Palhares. Belfort is 7-1 in his last eight, the only loss coming to dominant champion Anderson Silva

UFC 153 will take place October 13 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at the HSBC Arena. It will be headlined by the featherweight title scrap of Jose Aldo vs. Eric Koch, this fight, and also a key light heavyweight match as the up-and-coming Glover Teixeira will face the legendary Rampage Jackson.
