Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight contender Alan ‘The Talent’ Belcher will look to make it three-straight victories when he steps into the cage to face tough veteran fighter Ricardo Almeida on Feb. 2 at UFC 81 in Las Vegas.

Belcher stopped “The Ultimate Fighter” star Kalib Starnes by TKO at UFC 77 in Cincinnati and is proving that he is a force to be reckoned with in the 185-pound class.

Belcher on Friday confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that he will face Almeida. He said of his future opponent, “He beat Nate Marquardt by submission and Ryo Chonan by decision and his jiu-jitsu is really good, so it is going to be a good fight.”

Odd bit of news....considering Almeida's last fight is about when Belcher's first pro fight was.

I remember reading somthin' some months back regarding Almeida's return from "retirement". I completely forgot about it until I saw this.
Personally, I'd like to see him knock a little sense into Belcher...but he hasn't fought for about 4 years now. Hrmm......
