    I knew a guy (not well, friend of a friend) who played college baseball with Belcher. Said he was a good guy.
    Didn't see the article. Just felt compelled to state the obvious.

    Myself having had a burst fracture of L2 know how scarry that sounds. Every sitution is different, but it's possible to come back even better. Not saying it is the case here though.

    Alan Belcher Says Spinal Injury Will Not Be A Factor In Fight With Yushin Okami

    Alan Belcher Says Spinal Injury Will Not Be A Factor In Fight With Yushin Okami - FightLine.com
    Alan Belcher thought four words when a doctor told him earlier this year that he had a spinal fracture.

    "I couldn't believe it," said Belcher, in a recent interview with Fighters.com.

    Belcher has recovered from the crack in the spinous process at the base of his back well enough to face Yushin Okami in a key middleweight contest in December at UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II. The two met in 2006, with Okami claiming a decision victory in the UFC debut for "The Talent." Since that time, Belcher has battled several injuries to put himself on a four-fight win streak.

    With the UFC middleweight Top-10 an unknown right now, Belcher understands the importance of picking up his 19th career victory next month over "Thunder."

    "This time around, it's going to be a lot different," Belcher said. "Nothing will slow me down. I came back from the eye problem. A lot of people thought my career was over, but I made the choice to start fighting again. I came back from that - I can come back from anything."
