Default UPS question

I've had a UPS for about a year now that I haven't put to use. I know what it is and all but was a little on the ropes with this question. I currently use a power surge enclosed bar (belkin I believe, pretty much tries to hide cabling) When using the UPS can I just plug my extension cord (only have one outlet in the room, behind the bed) that usually goes to the surge protector on it then plug the surge protector straight into the UPS without having to re wire everything? I mainly want to do this because in my area we've had alot of power problems. Some days the power will work ten minutes then go out for five and repeat for a couple hours. Just sorta want to avoid having to restart with a short power outage. I know I probably explained this in a hard to understand manner but I'll do a illustration.

Wall > Extension cord > UPS > Surge protector

Would it work?

Would that work?
