Alan Belcher Says He Deserved to Lose His First Fight With Yushin Okami
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.28.2012

Alan Belcher recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his rematch with Yushin Okami this weekend at UFC 155. Check out the highlights:

On getting a rematch against Okami: "I didn't think of it at all as wanting to get the rematch. I took that (first) fight on short notice, I was really inexperienced, and I killed myself to make weight in that fight. I just didn't do things right. I basically starved myself. Not to make a list of excuses, but everything was wrong. And then on top of everything, he was just better, he was more experienced than me, and he was a better grappler. I tried hard, but I just wasn't on that level."

On other fighters turning down a potential matchup with him: "But those fights will have to happen soon, so I took the Yushin fight, and I trained my ass off for it, and I'm feeling pretty good."

On a ptoential title shot in 2013: "The last few years, I haven't been consistently fighting the top guys. I'm not looking for any shortcut (to a title shot). I know there are more tough guys in the division. I just need to keep fighting and be more consistent. Time goes by, and people forget (about your title worthiness). ... But I'm happy. I'm in a good place because I've beaten a lot of people in the division. There are only a couple people that are at the top that I can fight. I know there aren't many people (after Okami), so there's not much left, and then it'll be legit and a more clear picture."
