MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Uncle! — *Another* Big Fight Added to UFN 13


(Y’all know who it is.)

Man, the UFC really, really, really wants you to watch the season premiere of The Ultimate Fighter. You know how we told you that UFC 83 was canceled, and the Alexander/Irvin and Bisping/McCarthy fights would have to be re-scheduled? Well, it looks like Houston Alexander will be facing James Irvin at the UFC’s Ultimate Fight Night 13 on April 2nd, a live lead-in to the TUF 7 debut that’s also expected to feature the following bouts:

Kenny Florian vs. Joe Lauzon
Stephan Bonnar vs. Matt Hamill
Karo Parisyan vs. Thiago Alves
Spencer Fisher vs. Clay Guida vs. Samy Schiavo
Tommy Speer vs. Anthony Johnson
Josh Neer vs. Din Thomas

Jumpin’ Jesus on a pogo stick. Ken-Flo/Lauzon, Bonnar/Hamill, and Parisyan/Alves are already on the promotional materials, so they’re probably safe from being stuck on the undercard. But since Fight Nights are generally set up with only three or four fights scheduled for the live main card, UFC stars like Alexander, Spencer Fisher, Clay Guida, and TUF 6‘s Tommy Speer may be relegated to dark matches. Let’s hope for a lot of quick knockouts, UFC 80-style, so we can see as many of the fights as possible.

For real though, why can’t UFC 81, a pay-per-view card, have some action like this? “Breaking Point”‘s main event may turn out to be a boring disappointment, and the “co-headlining event” is getting by on hype alone. Quick poll: How many of you are psyched for Horn/Marquardt, Almeida/Belcher, or Tibau/Griffin? Those are freakin’ Fight Night-caliber matches. I’d happily pay to see Guida, Alexander, and Speer fight again — UFC 81′s main card, on the other hand, I’m not so happy about.

If headbutting was allowed he'd be champ.

How the hell does he get such heavy hands, like is there something you can do for that workout wise?

I hope Alexander beats his ass the way he did Jardine and Sakara. Jason I agree though that man has a big ass head lol

Has anyone noticed how big of a conehead Alexander has? Is he from France? I bet his noggin goes clear to the top of that hat.

What up Big C.

i wouldnt be so quick to count out lesnar. Mir hasnt been that impressive in his comeback. he's lost 2 out of 4 since his return and his win against TUF looser Dan Christison was pathetic, contender up for worst fight in MMA history. He looked good against Hardonk, but then again, so would I. Hardonk's a pud.

i will be intersting to see if mir shows up.

I agree....but I want to see Brock Lesnar in the Cage, he has some stones taking Mir on his first pro fight....even though he is going to get beat I still respect him for stepping in there....
