The year-end UFC 155 card continues to grow by the day, as MMAFighting.com’s Ariel Helwani is reporting middleweights Alan Belcher and Yushin Okami will collide. The event is set to go down December 29 from Las Vegas.
Belcher (18-6) was scheduled to face Vitor Belfort in October, but Belfort removed himself from the fight to face Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 152: Jones vs. Belfort. “The Talent” later revealed that he suffered a fractured spine and would not be able to compete at that time, anyway.
Okami (27-7) rebounded from a pair of setbacks to defeat Buddy Roberts earlier this year. “Thunder” actually defeated Belcher back at UFC 62 via unanimous decision.
