The UFC announced earlier today on UFC.com that Alan Belcher has been forced to withdraw from his UFC 81 bout against Ricardo Almeida due to a severe case of bronchitis. Undefeated UFC newcomer Rob Yundt will now take on Almedia this Saturday.
Yundt (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has fought exclusively in the Alaska Fighting Championships promotion, winning all six of his professional fights. In his last fight at AFC 40 in October, Yundt defeated Oscar Granado via technical knockout in just 53-seconds.
