Houston Alexander Denies UFC Firing Rumors and Says He’s Sticking by His Coaches

(Somehow, even in these bleak economic times, this man still has a job.)

Houston Alexander has apparently heard internet rumors to the effect that he’s been dropped from the UFC or has fired his entire coaching staff or desperately needs to learn the ground game. Oh, wait. That last part’s not a rumor. Anyway, the point is, he’s sick of it. So to clear the air and talk directly to fans without the filter of the MMA media, he turned to the Fight Magazine MMA blog:

People keep asking me what my plans are, they have read things all over the internet about my future with the UFC and how I am firing my coaching staff. So I thought I would address the rumors and my upcoming plans.

NO – I have not lost my UFC contract.

NO – I have not fired my coaching staff.

NO – I am not going to step down and fight for smaller organizations.

The loss last month was tough, but life goes on. People need to remember that I have only been fighting professionally for a year and a half. I have made great strides during that time, as well as faced some setbacks. My training will continue and we are looking at visiting some of the larger camps for additional training and strategy for my next fight. I have a lot to learn and am hoping to have everything straightened out before I enter the cage next time.

Look Houston, you seem like a nice guy so it’s hard not to feel some sympathy for you, but maybe the part about firing your coaching staff isn’t so crazy. If three straight losses isn’t a sign that something needs to change, I don’t know what is. And as for strategy, it should probably include either getting really good at jiu-jitsu really fast, or at least developing a top notch takedown defense. After what we’ve all seen in your last few fights, you can bet that everyone you face will be intent on getting the fight to the ground until you prove that it’s a bad idea.

Back on top? Back on top? The only thing this dude is on top of is cock. He is a dick rider. I could smash the dude. If he doesn't catch you with a shot in the first minute, you got em...

Dude is a fuckin' pussy. I've personally seen him get his fuckin' ass kicked inside of a record store in Omaha NE by a fat ass pussy. He is a fuckin' BITCH!!!



Thats right Houston, I know for a fact that you threw that fight....we both know it!

Chichi Larue = Roy Nelson. Still upset that you didn't have the "UFC look"? Put the fork down fatty.

You hit the nail on the head. Houston needs to learn how to buck his hips and to spin out from under some one.... when he is on his back you can see that he's just lost.
Has no idea how to escape.... that should have been the first thing he learned...
that or the Sprawl and Brawl...

Donna White called adn told him if he doesnt shave his chest, he is fired.

THe UFC likes all their fighters to have smooth chests an brazilian wax jobs so as to better attract the well-heeled gay community who in time of recession have more disposable income than others. Extra pts are given for any cock shaped tatoo as well.

I thought we were talking about Alexander???....... You just hate to see a guy with so much potential, and a strong start in the UFC, get knocked the fuck out twice and submitted once in his last 3 fights. I "had" high hopes for this dude, but I'm done gettin excited for his fights.
GLZA is right on about Alves vs Sanchez though.........Holy Shit!!!!!

shitwhistle- October 8, 2008 at 12:42 am
I had such high hopes for this big headed som'bitch. He has (had?) crazy hands. On the ground, however, he's a turtle on his back. Straight pitiful. Like he's not even trying to escape.

^ Off topic guy, I'll take that bet in a hot second. Cote = dead metrosexual canadian type guy.

Is this Junie dude jumpin' over the cage on the TUF preview? I hope the Bens are ready. This just might be a hot topic tomorrow...
kinda off topic but...- October 8, 2008 at 12:06 am

houstons skillset is a lot like kimbos, heavy hands with no ground game but he would steamroll kimbo. houston has a decent inside game, nasty knees
