Alan Belcher: Detached Retina May End Fighting Career

Just as Alan Belchers UFC career is starting to peak, a new eye injury might force him out of the sport for good.

“I have a detached retina, just lost the vision in my right eye all of a sudden. Just happened all of a sudden man, pretty much over night. I was in Brazil training, I messed around there for a few days and then afterward I had to come home and have a surgery the day after I came home … There’s going to be more surgeries even at the best case scenario. Worst case scenario is I don’t get any better than this, I’m only working with one eye, I probably don’t want to risk fighting again because if I lose that one I’m going to be blind.” said Belcher

  1. super sad. I really liked belcher. He was a rising fighter in the business, and I was rooting for him!!

  2. ya now there is one less remaining fight for silva in at 185, too bad to see a guy go down in his prime though

  3. Kung Fu Panda says:

    it is definitely unfortunate and wish him a lot of luck!
