UFC middleweight Alan Belcher says his mixed martial arts career isn't on his mind right now as his main focus currently is to recover from a detached retina in his right eye.

In an interview Monday with Purefight, the 26-year-old out of Biloxi, Miss. says the worst case would be the end of his competitive career while the best case scenario would still mean additional surgery.

The timing of Belcher's injury is especially unfortunate considering his recent ascent in the middleweight division. Belcher has won four of his last five UFC fights with the one loss a close decision to Yoshihiro Akiyama. Additionally, he received either Submission of the Night or Fight of the Night in each of his last four fights.

That really sucks. It would be a damn shame for him to go out like that.

This just goes to show how brutal training can be. I'm a relatively new MMA fan and it looks like many fighters can banged up more in training than in the actual fight itself.

It's like most sports, really - the training is the hard part, while game day is a lot of fun.
