Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Houston Alexander catches son Talking Dirty, Challenges him to Boxing Match, gets Arrested

“Back up, homie: What the hell is ‘Face Book’?”

As MMA fans, we’ve seen our fair share of “WTF” moments. From freak show fights to flashy knockouts to Jon Fitch partying like a rockstar to freaking Jose Canseco, you would think that we’ve seen it all and nothing could surprise us. Yet sometimes a story comes along that is so bizarre that even we are unable to make sense of it.    

Houston Alexander returned to the spotlight this weekend. When we last checked in on the former UFC light heavyweight, he was getting his lights turned out by ex-hockey enforcer Steve Bosse. If you thought that was as low as things could get for Alexander, then prepare to flabbergasted.

Here is the latest update on Alexander, courtesy of KMTV News Omaha, via MiddleEasy:

Police ticketed popular MMA fighter Houston Alexander for child abuse after the 39-year-old became upset with his 16-year-old and made him box with him.

Police reports say officers were called to a home near 44th and Maple for a domestic disturbance. The older Alexander told them he was having trouble with his teen son, who was “having explicit sexual contact on Facebook with some unknown females.” The 16-year-old reportedly lied and “made him very upset.”

According to police reports, “Alexander then retrieved boxing gloves and told his son, ‘If you are going to lie to me, then we are going to box.’” The two reportedly boxed in the basement. Officers describe the teen as having a “slight bloody nose and pain to his right side.”

Alexander was cited for misdemeanor [sic] child abuse.

In other words, “The Assassin” caught his son talking dirty to some lady friends on Facebook. When his son lied about it, Houston Alexander challenged him to fight on the spot. After the impromptu boxing match, police arrested Houston for child abuse.

We may be hack journalists, but even we have our limits. If there’s two things we don’t joke about at Cage Potato, it’s child abuse and surprise vans- so we’ll decline to comment on this any further. You guys in the comments section, on the other hand….

You are not allowed to hit kids anuymore because the democrats want them to be gays and vote democrat. January 3, 2012 at 6:15 pm
I'm surprised his son got hit. Alexander likes to circle his opponent for most of the fight and rely on the judges!

who was the ref springer ?

See... the part they forgot to mention in the article is that the police handcuffed Mr. Alexander as he laid in the basement unconscious from getting knocked out by his son.

What the fuck is the world coming can't have a sparring session with your son anymore? Me and my old man and my brothers used to go at it all the time......there is absolutely no correlation between that and the fact that I am an aggressive, abusive alcholic....but seriously, a slightly bloody nose and getting hit by a body shot....come on

The kid should feel blessed, getting the crap beaten out of them by their dad is what made Nate & Nick tough.

who said he was wailing on his kid?
NinjaVanish- January 1, 2012 at 9:20 pm
Thats rough. Physical discipline in children is effective only when its the act of contact itself that brings the child to correct behavior, not the level of damage inflicted.

Although Im all about putting your kid in check with the firm hand, you cant be wailing on your kids. Eat a dick Alexander.

Another case of cops bringing some racist bullshit against Explosive Americans.
DARKHORSE06- January 1, 2012 at 6:49 pm
If his kid had weathered the storm he could have coasted his way to victory in the 2nd or 3rd round.
Either way, this guy has like 14 or 15 kids and he is a single parent. I would be out of my fucking mind too.
@antFarmer - That was some funny shit.
rickards- January 1, 2012 at 6:47 pm
boxing up your kid for lying is a creative way for discipline.

If every dad was like Houston Alexander then the streets would be safe to walk in at night and we could leave our grandmothers out in the yard unlocked.

I think a kidney is worth at least one ass whoopin'.
RwilsonR- January 1, 2012 at 3:09 pm
I hope this wasn't the kid he gave one of his kidneys to. Ungrateful little shit.
RwilsonR- January 1, 2012 at 3:07 pm
You guys think you're hack journalists, what about these guys who reported on the story?
KMTV News Omaha: "Police ticketed popular MMA fighter Houston Alexander..."
Obviously no fact-checking done there. Popular?
Dirt- January 1, 2012 at 2:59 pm
Isn't there a law that prohibits these things from being published to protect the victim of the abuse... Saying Alexander beat up his 16 year old son doesn't exactly leave much room for spectulation...
Just sayin
JCVD as Timecop- January 1, 2012 at 2:26 pm
Did you think that they'd misspelled 'misdemeanor' or something?
