UFC welterweight Alan Belcher has had issues with his right eye since 2010. in Fact, he was supposed to fight Demian Maia in September of that year, but he pulled out because he needed emergency eye surgery. That is why when Belcher crumpled to the floor during his bout with Michael Bisping holding his eye on Saturday night at UFC 159: Jones Vs Sonnen, commentator Joe Rogan was so concerned about the status of the eye. Belcher was taken to the hospital right after the fight and it turns out it’s nothing too serious.
Belcher took to twitter to inform his fans:
“I’m ok.. Just got back from e.r. 8 stitches in eyelid. Disappointed. To my real supporters, I’m sorry, thank you once again.”
