Log in to Reply Cromagnonman September 17, 2008 Alexander is a Badass but once again his lack of technical skill is exposed. Hats off to Schaefer for hanging tough during the initial onslaught. Classic Brawler vs. Grappler fight. Good Times. Log in to Reply Junbo79 September 17, 2008 Damnit. Unfortunately this will be his last fight in the UFC. Log in to Reply Sprawler99 September 17, 2008 Houston Alexander is poop! Log in to Reply Jaks Emel September 17, 2008 Yeah, I think the One Punch Wonder(Houston) needs to find something else to do. Log in to Reply Zescape September 17, 2008 Bruno is the man! Quality performance by Schafer. He took some big shots, but perservered and got it to the ground. Good to see people exposing Houston’s ground game as a joke. Log in to Reply WAR September 17, 2008 How do you get to the UFC and have 0 ground game Log in to Reply houstonsucks September 17, 2008 Terrible job houston, you lost it on purpose. Log in to Reply Ozinator September 17, 2008 with 10 seconds…very nice Log in to Reply Yo September 17, 2008 As MMAMafia mentioned Thanks for the quick post. Will A.H. receive the boot for three straight failures within one year or will the UFC keep him around b/c of his popularity? Anyone else think the initial knees were illegal? 4:45 Remaining Hit body then chin, Head goes flying up Right knee on ground Left knee inches from the ground 4:45 Remaining Left leg standing Right knee on ground Right before 2:28 of RuTUbe, you see both of Schafer’s knees inches above the ground(falling) but I believe it’s a result of the second knee to the initial position mentioned above Log in to Reply WOOLSLAYER September 17, 2008 THANKS for getting this up so fast… Log in to Reply ditchdoc80 September 17, 2008 awesome fight damn he got raped prison style on the ground Log in to Reply fotownfeatherwieght September 17, 2008 ufc has alot of shitty fighters that are made out to be like “the best fighters in the world”. some good ones too but, alot of shitty fighters that could probobly lose against some undercard ams. Log in to Reply hutterchan September 18, 2008 pathetic performance by alexander, it looked like he gassed after he threw the two knees. he needs to work his ground game and his cardio, props to schafer though for eating up those big shots. Log in to Reply mefninja September 18, 2008 you’d think this idiot would learn a freakin ground game after silva… omg…… he’s not fit for ufc.. Log in to Reply blackgerbil4Pres September 18, 2008 That was the weakest setup I’ve ever seen – choreographed to a T SO homie should’ve seen it coming … houston has no f–kin ground game whatsoever Log in to Reply ReDiCuLouS September 18, 2008 He’ll be back….and with VENGEANCE!!!!!!~ Log in to Reply Jason September 18, 2008 LOVED the mock salute/screwy face that Schafer gave after the tap. Crowd didn’t like that at all. If you’ve got zero ground game, you don’t belong in the UFC. This has been known since …what? UFC 8-ish? Log in to Reply Brandon September 18, 2008 I agree with “Yo”, those two knees early on looked illegal to me. I also noticed half way through the round that he cheated once again by grabbing a handful of Eric’s shorts. Fortunately the ref noticed the cheating that time around and warned him… Houston from what I heard re upped his contract before his Irvin fight so he should be around for another fight or two… Log in to Reply PikachuManson September 18, 2008 Let Jardine get his revenge match then throw the bum out! Log in to Reply asdf September 18, 2008 roflmao houston lost Schafer ate 2 HUGE knees at the start and i honestly thought he was done (expected houston just to overwhelm him with punches and TKO him, but he gassed and ruined it all) but man, Schafer obviously has great chin and heart deserved victory Log in to Reply Muay Thai #1 September 18, 2008 Great job by Schafer! He took some punishment but pulled through. Yes, there was one illegal knee that was not called the first one was to his chest so it was legal but the second was not. Houston had to have seen that arm triagle coming, anytime a guy crosses our arm over he is looking for an arm triangle. Log in to Reply feedmont September 18, 2008 I was really pulling for Houston and he almost finished the fight but once again his ground game is non-existent: he needs to either switch camps or quit. Log in to Reply ness September 18, 2008 he’s done in the ufc. Log in to Reply dpiper September 18, 2008 I agree the second knee was illegal but was impressed how Schafer took the punishmnt early on. What I found totally dumb founded was HA getting up off Schafer at ~4:15 to fix his shorts. He had a completely dominate position. And if I remember collectly didn’t Schafer lose to both Bisping and Bonner from the ground and pound. Log in to Reply Mike September 18, 2008 I still can’t believe eric got houston down even with his weak take down attempts. Just goes to show you how crappy his ground game is. Log in to Reply tired September 18, 2008 If he isn’t dropped from the UFC after this, he should work on nothing but a ground game. His stand-up is awesome, but just getting him on the ground seems to end his night. Work on nothing but sweeps and sprawling and just getting off the ground. As for the illegal knees, yeah, there were one or two, but I think if they would have stopped the fight or even paused it, they would have gotten lynched by the hometown crowd. Log in to Reply reesebryant2123 September 18, 2008 BJJ is the shit!!! Log in to Reply BakaSurvivor September 18, 2008 Houston will definitely be back in the UFC. He lost, but his fights are always exciting. Schafer did an excellent job weathering the early storm and deserved the win. Log in to Reply mrtluu September 18, 2008 JUST PUT IT THIS WAY. . ALEXANDER HAVEN”T LEARNED SHIT. and say good bye..cause he’s done in the ufc. Log in to Reply wow September 18, 2008 Awesome fight! I thought the striker would win, but the grappler comes out on top. Log in to Reply disco September 19, 2008 Alexander signed a 5 fight contract right before this, so he is not going anywhere. Also that was an awesome head arm choke! Log in to Reply Niv September 19, 2008 Alexander is the most overrated fighter in the sport. He had two good ko’s as he obviously is strong and throws hard shots, but that’s all he has. I don’t think he has a long enough record to even say he’s a good striker, he’s a hard hitter. He has been knocked out by two better strikers, Irvin and Silva. Silva of course hammered him out on the ground though. Nevertheless, the only reason he’ll be around is because the UFC knows he’s popular with the fans. How else does Brock Lesnar get a title shot with a 1 and 1 record in the UFC? Log in to Reply kimura expert September 19, 2008 houston should train bjj for 1 yr 4 hours a day and just freakin’ run for 2 hours that would get his ground game and cardio up a couple of notches..he’s striking goes on ghetto mode during fights..have you watched the after he lost to irvin..he fought in a local show and he was on the ground mounted..but they were almost out of the ring and when the ref made them go to the middle and continue with the same position houston declined he got dq for that crap..so sad.. Log in to Reply x2468 September 19, 2008 i think houston gassed because he is cutting to much weight. he either needs to either stop body building and cut some bulk or maybe move to heavyweight. i suspect that the same thing happened to sokujou when he fought machida. Log in to Reply Adam September 19, 2008 houston would be a scary dude in a barfight or against untrained people. But maybe he should be a boxer,cuz he has no ground skills.his stand up is fierce because hes so powerfull,but it isnt enough,considering that he lost 3 fights.4get these crappy fiters,i want to see bj penn fite gsp again,whatever happened to that fite anyways? Log in to Reply viking September 19, 2008 Arm triangle=most underutilized move in MMA…I mean, until now:) Log in to Reply brian kenny September 19, 2008 it’s a shame alexander is 37… if he learned the ground game earlier in life he would be a real force to be reckoned with… still an exciting fighter with the ko factor.. i’d rather watch him give it all, then most of the lay and pray american fighters Log in to Reply static September 19, 2008 Who cares if HA learns a ground game have you guys forgotten his glass jaw if he doesn’t get submitted then he will get knock out. Log in to Reply J_satan_666 September 19, 2008 alexander goes for the kill, all out and furious but blew his energy. I bet most of you who say “huston sucks” thought schaffer was going to lose in that fight at one point. he was getting pounded on and all his shots were getting stuffed. the whole fight changed after the first take down! Log in to Reply gringo September 20, 2008 Houston = one dimentional. All he can do is throw vicious punches and knees for about 60 seconds and if that doesn’t work, he gases and his opponent either touches his glass chin or beats him to a pulp on the ground. Extremely overrated. I bet the UFC brings him back for another fight on the under card because even though he sucks at MMA, many fans still want to see him. Log in to Reply gunnyhighway99 September 20, 2008 Houston has no ground game, and Schafer has no stand up- what a crap fight. Log in to Reply TABASCOsauce September 20, 2008 Wow…first time I got to see this fight…Houston’s officially out the UFC. I know Red’s a legit BJJ black belt, but come on. Houston looked like he hadn’t trained ground at all since his loss to Thiago Silva. I’ve seen guys with 6 months of part time BJJ training with better ground defense. Log in to Reply Mag September 21, 2008 Sorry Alexander, but having no ground game at that level makes you a can. He really should have worked something out between the Thaigo fight and now. Log in to Reply Micah September 23, 2008 I thought hurricane Ike dominated Houston pretty bad, but that was worse. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
