Default Are people over hyping Houston Alexander?

After 2 impressive 1st round wins in the UFC a lot of people seem to be lining this guy up for a title shot asap. He has raw power and aggression but do we know enough about him to throw him in at the very top?

How will he do on his back? whats his sub defence like? and does he have the stamina levels to go the distance if someone survives his fury early on?

Personally, i would like to see a few more fights before throwing him in a number 1 contender or title fight.

So then, are people overhyping this guy?

Overhypying?? I don't think so, at least, I am not. I just want to give the guy some props for putting on a great show. I do not think he has yet to be tested since his last two bouts have all ended in the 1st round. The man is a powerful fighter and I think strength wise he may even be stronger than Rampage. But we all know that you will need more than strength alone to be a champion in this sport.

Dude was breathing like he'd just completed a marathon after his last fight. He wouldn't KO Rampage in 70 seconds; I want to see him go 3-5 rounds with someone...

yeah, i would like to see him go the distance with someone, or at least into the 3rd round. then we'll see what he is made of. just cause he ko'ed jardine doesnt put him up there. i personally think jardine wasnt exactly thinking alexander was gonna come out and be that aggressive.
