We knew this was coming. Talking with Fanhouse’s Ariel Helwani, UFC president Dana White confirms that Houston Alexander does not have a future in the UFC after his dismal performance against Kimbo Slice at last weekend’s TUF 10 Finale. Hardly surprising, right? Alexander had already been run out of the UFC once, and was only brought back because he seemed like a beatable opponent for Kimbo (which he was) with a modicum of name value. He lost, he looked bad doing it, and so he’s fired again. Everything here is going according to script.
But remember when Roy Nelson jokingly referred to himself as the UFC’s official suckmeter? Remember when he said that he was going to be the guy who, if you couldn’t beat him, it meant you didn’t belong in the UFC? You thinking what I’m thinking here, dog?
