John Alan "The Talent" Belcher (born April 24, 1984 in Jonesboro, Arkansas) known as Alan Belcher is an American mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter who fights out of Remix MMA in Biloxi, Mississippi, where he is also an instructor. He currently fights in the middleweight division for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
At UFC 69, Belcher lost to The Ultimate Fighter 3 winner Kendall Grove. Belcher then defeated Sean Salmon one month later at UFC 71 with a guillotine choke at :53 of the first round. Belcher took the fight on ten-days notice after Eric Schafer pulled out due to sustaining a broken rib during training.
Belcher then defeated Kalib Starnes at UFC 77 on October 20, 2007. After controlling the fight with punches and knees from the clinch, the fight was eventually stopped in favor of Belcher due to a large gash over Starnes' right eye.
Belcher was scheduled to fight at UFC 81 against Ricardo Almeida, but he had to pull out two days before the fight due to a severe case of Bronchitis. Belcher was then to fight Patrick Cote at UFC 83 in Montreal, but unfortunately Patrick Cote had to withdraw due to a knee injury. UFC newcomer Jason "Dooms" Day replaced Cote in a fight that saw Day quickly finish Belcher with strikes in the first round. Belcher bounced back at UFC 93, scoring a submission victory against UFC experienced newcomer, Denis Kang.
He has a huge tattoo of his favorite singer Johnny Cash on his left arm.
