Here is the video of Keith Jardine vs. Houston Alexander Fight, Watch it while it lasts
I could not believe that happened. Its a good thing I don't bet.
if you watch the film again, CLEARLY houston has an innate sense of what weapon to use from his arsenal of offensive moves. when he got knocked backwards, he immediately went for the double leg takedown while his opponent was up top looking for a hook. then, while his opponent was trying to lock up with houston after being hurt by houston's right hook, houston then caught his opponent clear as day, bypassing his obstructed angle to his face, by going around and under with a devestating, ala Mike Tyson leg-thrusting upper-cut. he again used this same barrage of punches, hook hook hook hook UPPERCUT to take him down again. my favorite was when the right handed houston then came in with the left knee, demonstrating his ambidextrous fluidity. And it was ONLY FITTING, that he END his opponent with the punch that took his opponent down twice just seconds earlier – the upper-cut. Mouth-piece out…end transmission.
Jardine took Alexander lightly.
Jardine should have picked his shots after the one that landed and sent Alexander back. Instead he thought he would rush in and throw wild knockout punches. Live and learn, don't talk shit, don't take your opponent lightly, and pick good shots, like Alexander.
Props to my fellow Nebraskan. I practice mma myself along with some guys who have gone on to fight in the UFC. I had heard of Houston but had yet to see him fight. He put on a Hell of a show Saturday night. Here's hoping we see more of him in the future.
