The only one I see getting back in is Yager. Houston is too old and one sided. He would have to go on a hell of a tear to make it back. Browning has a lot of talent but is battshit crazy so I doubt he will ever make it back. He blew his chance

Well to be honest I have to agree with you on Junie's issues. I'm surprised he even made it into the UFC after the Ultimate Fighter. Yager though I think could definately make it back.

I'm going to be honest, I have no idea Razak "Razor" Al-Hassan is. So I can't really say if Houston is going to beat him or not. I don't have to much faith in Houston. He surprised me when he beat Sokky. However, that fight was really a testament to how bad Sokky gas tank was then Houston being a superior fighter.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Yeah, I have no idea who Razak "Razor" Al-Hassan is either. But the fact of the matter is that Houston if a stand-up fighter who swings for the knockout. That alone is what made him a sensation.

Houston Alexander radio interview about the fight:

Seven kids. Three jobs. 39 years of age.

If there's anyone you'd expect to drop dead from exhaustion, it would be Houston Alexander (12-6).

But the fighter said he still has the motivation to keep going and ultimately prove he belongs in the big show.

"I can do this Randy Couture long," Alexander, who on Saturday fights Razak Al-Hassan (11-3) at "MMA Fight Pit: Genesis," recently told Radio ( "Randy went almost until he was 50. I can go for as long as he's gone, if not longer because my body isn't worn out.

"I can go as long as I take care of my body and eat right."

Well, at least most of the time. During his interview, he noshed on some Panda Express. A few days out from his fight against Razak Al-Hassan, Alexander is trying to keep his energy up. In addition to his job as a fighter, he's a DJ at a local radio station and has recently taken to mentoring young fathers in his adopted hometown of Omaha, Neb.

It's a draining grind. Physically, there's no way Alexander can train as much as other athletes. With all the demands on his time, he has to make do with the schedule he keeps. Luckily, he has seven reasons to be on point.

"The desire is still there every single day, brother," he said. "When you have children, the desire is always there. I've always been self-motivated, anyway."

And he said that's actually a good thing when he has to bear down for a fight camp.

"I think the fact that I do other things and don't think about MMA all the time actually helps me out," he said. "Because people who focus on MMA too much, it kind of takes away from them. When I have to come back to MMA, it's strictly MMA. But the discipline is there for all aspects of the game."

Alexander has been defeated but once since his departure from the UFC in late 2009 and enjoys a three-fight win streak. So, for now, things are going pretty well, and they could get even better.

"To be real, I'm in a big show right now," he said. "This Saturday is as big as they come. But for me to be in another big show, which could possibly be in the UFC, hopefully I can get to that point where the wins speak for themselves."

Well one thing you have to admit is that Houston Alexander stands a better chance of getting into the UFC then James Irvin. Irvin tested positive for juicing after he left the UFC. One place I can see Irvin is in a ProElite show possibly.

Keep an eye out for 7-0 bantamweight Jason Sampson on the undercard. He's got a strong wrestling base and excellent submissions. With a couple more solid outings, he's a guy you could see in the UFC.

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

Junie, Junie, Junie, hahaha. Here are the full results:

All 20 fighters competing in tonight's "MMA Fight Pit: Genesis" pay-per-view event have weighed in for the show.

Headliners Houston Alexander (205.5) and Razak Al-Hassan (204), as well as co-headliners Jens Pulver (136) and Coty "Ox" Wheeler (137), successfully made weight.

Main-card fighter Junie Browning didn't, though. And it wasn't even close.

Friday's weigh-ins took place at Library Bar & Grill in Albuquerque, N.M. Tonight's event takes place at The Pit at the University of New Mexico.

The upstart MMA Fight Pit promotion and the New Mexico Athletic Commission allowed each competitor an extra two pounds (rather than the traditional one) over the weight-class limit during weigh-ins. That did little to help Browning, though. The fighter, who flamed out of the UFC and now is stuck in a three-fight losing skid, weighed 162.25 pounds for his lightweight fight. Opponent Jacob Clark (158) didn't fare much better.

According to the organization, each fighter will be fined per pound they're overweight, though exact amounts weren't disclosed.

The full weigh-in results included:


* Razak Al-Hassan (204) vs. Houston Alexander (205.5)
* Jens Pulver (136) vs. Coty "Ox" Wheeler (137)
* Jamie Yager (185.5) vs. Willie Parks (187)
* Junie Browning (162.25) vs. Jacob Clark (158)
* Tyler East (240.5) vs. Prince Mclean (220)
* Angelica Chavez (106.25) vs. Diana Rael (105.25)


* Sean Spencer (170.75) vs. Ali Hanjani (170.75)
* Jason Sampson (135.75) vs. Josh Montoya (136)
* Guy Youell (147.25) vs. Conrad Padilla (145.5)
* Mark Lujan (183.75) vs. Rocky Ramirez (182.5)

and his fight didn't go too much better:

Round 1 – The return of “The Lunatik” Junie Browning. He came in seven pounds over weight at 172 pounds. He had to give his opponent a portion of his purse. Browning looks chubby. Junie is training at Legends MMA now days with Eddie Bravo. The announcer said he trained at Team Tompkins and Junie and his corner shook their head “No”. Leg kick from Junie. Body shot from Junie, leg kick. Junie shoots, puts Clark on his back. Junie on top in half guard. Clark has full guard. Goes for an armbar. Junie picks him up, lets him down. Junie has an upside down leg triangle, lets it go and takes Clark’s back. Junie looking for a Twister. Comes close. Ref stands them up. Right hand from Junie, right to the body. Shoots, stuffed. Clark postures over Junie with punches. Clark passes to side control. Big knees to Junie’s ribs. Browning smashes him with elbows and Junie taps out to strikes. Clark took this bout on two days notice. Kruck said he was surprised Junie tapped so fast. Junie has lost his last four fights.

OFFICIAL RESULT: Jacob Clark def. Junie Browning by submission (elbows) Rd 1 (4:18)

Jens Pulver gets a win.

At 36 years of age, Jens Pulver made his first drop to bantamweight. The former UFC lightweight champion hasn't enjoyed much success these past few years, but last night, the former UFC lightweight champion had his hand raised once again. He knocked out WEC veteran, Coty Wheeler on the second round of the co-headlining bout of MMA Fight Pit: Genesis.

After losing 6 straight fights at one point, 'Lil Evil' is having a pretty decent year so far. He definitely isn't the same fighter he was during his prime, but this successful 135 lb. debut now puts him with 3 wins on his past 4 fights.

Check out footage of the fight below:

UFC veterans Junie Browning, Jamie Yager, Razak Al-Hassan, and Houston Alexander also competed on the MMA Fight Pit: Genesis card. Check out the fight videos after the jump.
There is alot of other interesting fights on this card. Click the link... Jamie Yager fight was awesome.
