Fight of the Day: Houston Alexander vs. Thiago Silva (UFC 78)

According to MMAJunkie.com, Houston Alexander is already back in the gym with his coach Mick Doyle, trying to figure out what the hell went wrong on Saturday night and how to prevent it from ever happening again. They’ll surely be watching this video on repeat, which shows just where things fell apart. Instead of coming out swinging in his usual wildman style, Alexander calmly stalked Thiago Silva at the start of the first round before falling into a clinch. From there, Silva’s Chute Boxe jiu-jitsu skills take over, and Alexander is brought to the mat and mounted. Referee Dan Miragliotta steps in when Alexander seems to lose consciousness, but lets Silva haul off a few more times just to be sure. Not that I blame him — I certainly wouldn’t want those Jersey savages hounding me about an early stoppage…

Silva derailed the Houston train in a kick ass fation.

Good fight, but even better outcome

What surprise me is that Alexander said he is a brawler and the mom's baby kicked his butt without excuses. One thing, fighting is nothing but skills, training, learning and expressing in the ring and you Alexander got your lesson by a guy that would beat you again, again, and againg, so many times as he wants.
And you know why ?? Cause he is not only a fighter but a well trained athlete. Thiago Silva is simply the best.

Stop defending Houston, god damnit. You're all brainwashed by the media. Make up your own mind for once.
