    He really let himself go, from the looks of it.

    I'm assuming that you're joking. He has been on the special vitamins for years. His opponent, now....

    Random thoughts.

    1 No offense but I am washed and could still beat Belcher's opponent up in a fight.
    2 Interesting his boxing debut happened in a cage.
    3 Belcher is definitely allegedly on something. Allegedly.
    4 Isn't Belcher the guy who clawed Bisping's eye out? That shit was nasty. Can't believe Bisping kept fighting after that and got an eyepoke of his own in iirc.
    5 Belcher will not go far in the sport but it's cool he's trying.

    His opponent looks like Roy Nelson's weird, heavily-tatted nephew who's like Roy without any power in his hands. I guess it's fun he's doing low-level boxing, but I hope it's just a fun hobby--not because he needs the money. He owns several gyms so hopefully he's doing well financially. At age 37, his odds of making it beyond journeyman or bareknuckle stuff aren't good at all.

    Alan Belcher is only 37 and is younger than Tony Ferguson? That's incredible.

    Which part of the vid is boxing?

    <WhatIsThis>

    Edit- I found the boxing part. Why did Belcher fight my Uber driver?

    Can't disagree with much here. First thing I noticed was how his opponent had pillow hands and moobs. I agree that I don't see him going far, as he lacks the requisite boxing skills and handspeed + accuracy, but his size will be an issue for cans, and so he will have value as a freakshow fight because of his physique, which is completely natural and only with the help of vitamins and prayers.

    I'm would think it was because he needs the money, as he left combat sports due to injury, if I remember correctly. I remember he was putting out entrepreneur videos awhile back. Guess that didn't pan out.

    If I remember correctly, he got eye poked and had surgery himself, so he had to sit out for health reasons.

    ??????? he has a literal set of fat tits. unless the special vitamins you’re referring to are of the sugary variety.

    How the fuck are you guys not recognizing Belcher? Did you even watch UFC during his run? WTF?

    yeah he never had a tan and was never muscular. sometimes he had a mohawk/mullet. his opponent in this fight fits a lot of those descriptors. also, the whole point is that it looks nothing like him, that’s the whole reason you made this thread, no?

    He started getting yuge after he left the UFC. It was discussed on Sherdog at the time, which is how I knew about it. I know you watched around that time. I was mostly fucking with you. I'm just a bit confused that people aren't recognizing him. I made the thread because he is boxing after having left combat sports because of eye injury, and the "boxing" match was a bit sus, as others have noted. It is a freakshow thing, and people generally respond with interest to freakshows.

    Edit: Lol @ you not getting it, but it's ok. I thought the tattoo at the very least would give it away. Anyone who kept up on MMA knew that Belcher got swole, so it wasn't a reach that he would be the big guy instead of the moobs guy. It's just a bit of boxing minutiae that I found interesting.

    not gonna lie i haven’t heard jack shit about belcher since he retired from mma. this is all news to me.
    yeah it’s interesting for sure. i just wasn’t expecting him to look the way he does. i’m assuming that’s the goal of the thread, no? surprising people with belcher’s new look?
