Houston Alexander's having a rough spell, isn't he?

Guy just can't handle anyone with decent BJJ. As soon as it hits the floor and his on the bottom he doesn't have an answer for them. He's the prime example of what would happen to a boxer if they were to participate in an MMA fight.

Alexander needs too do some BJJ training or stop taking fights with Ground guys...

guida vs danzig was a pretty awesome fight, i thought danzig was going to win that fight for sure but guida made a fan of me last night. He was just constant pressure and never really let up at any point during the fight.
As for nate diaz, that dude is slippery as hell... he is very good at getting out of bad situations, i dont see him ever really getting submitted. I think he has pretty good striking, but i think if he got in there with someone with some heavy hands, and who isnt afraid to take his shots, this is where i see nate having trouble. I just dont see him having any real knockout power.

How many more fights is Dana going to give Houston?

Well thats 3 in a row that Houston has lost, and most guys are gone after that. Plus when you lose to a guy like Schafer who has great ground skills but isn't anywhere near the top of the division then you can pretty much start looking for fights outside of the UFC.

houston looked like a fish out of water once his back was on the mat. his standup is enough to make him competitive, but as we all know, in mma you need skills in all areas.

Yeah, but Houston just signed a 6 fight extension with the UFC...

It was actually a 5 fight extension with the Schafer fight being one of them so he has 4 fights left. This fight was obviously meant to be a "gimme" for Houston considering Schafer's history against strikers, and he has always been a crowd pleaser whether he wins or loses. However even crowd pleasers know they need to get wins under their belt otherwise they can never be considered top contenders. Wanderlei Silva is the prime example of that. Plus Dana White told Yahoo! sports prior to this fight that another loss for Houston and he would have to go out and work his way back up to the UFC which could either mean that the extension was feasible so long as he got some wins or they are quite happy to release him which wouldn't surprise me at all. It isn't and wouldn't be much of a loss for them when you look at the 205lb division.
