Congratulations go out to UFC middleweight Alan Belcher and his wife Ashlee on the birth of their daughter, Ava Elize Belcher, now fighting out of Bilxoi, MS. Born at 5 pm on January 18 and standing 21 inches long with an 18 1/2 inch reach, Ava weighed in at nine pounds exactly.

Trainers report that since birth, Ava has been working on her clinch game; specifically, wrapping people around her little finger. She also demonstrated an early talent for stand-up as seen in the prenatal photo below entitled "Chin down, hands up."

We look forward to seeing Belcher back in the Octagon this spring and Ava in his corner soon after.
