UFC Middleweight Alan Belcher

UFC president Dana White has just added a middleweight brawl between Alan Belcher (Pictured) and Rousimar Palhares to the “UFC on FOX 3” lineup.

Belcher will be riding a three-fight winning streak into the 185-pound affair. After undergoing a career threatening eye operation in August 2010, “The Talent” returned from a 15-month hiatus to trounce Jason MacDonald this past September.

Speaking of unbeaten runs, Palhares is also perfect in his last three trips to the Octagon. The submission specialist was most recently seen making Mike Massenzio cry uncle to a vicious heel hook at UFC 142.

‘UFC on FOX 3′ takes place May 5th inside IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. A five-round affair between Nate Diaz and Jim Miller headlines the festivities.

Here is the card’s current roster:

Louis Gaudinot vs. John Lineker

Mike Massenzio vs. Karlos Vemola

Danny Castillo vs. John Cholish

John Dodson vs. Darren Uyenoyama

John Hathaway vs. Pascal Krauss

Tony Ferguson vs. Dennis Hallman

Pat Barry vs. Lavar Johnson

Alan Belcher vs Rousimar Palhares

Josh Koscheck vs. Johny Hendricks

Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller (Five-Round Fight)
