So who do you guys think Alexander could beat up right now?

I'm thinking there's alot of LHWs that should be losing sleep at night right now. I'm not saying Keith Jardine is the toughest fighter around, nor do I think him beating Forrest Griffin was anything more than a fluke, but he does have some credibility in UFC. But come on now, Alessio Sakara? He's legit in my book. And neither of these two stood a chance against Alexander. I really think that when he steps into the octagon, he's really trying to hurt people. I know, I know, everyone wants to win, but he seems like he takes it personally that people actually want to fight him. We'll have to see what happens in his next few fights, but to me, this guys's scary. I wouldn't fight him for almost anything.

yeah, the guys violent and pretty tough but theres no way he would of beat any top 8 fighter. Mainly because, unlike ramieu, after his 1 minute bouts he is exhausted. He wouldn't finish anyone tito ortiz on up in 1 minute so I don't feel confident in him atm being a real contender.

He is entertaining to watch, and will press the fight but i jus dont seem him going to far unless he puts in considerable work.

houston is extremely aggresive, when he got rocked by jardine he exploded and it looked like he was just about ready to kill jardine before the referee stepped in.

i think he'd beat up anyone out of the top 5 if it stays standing. obviously the game plan of any of his future opponents would be to take him down and keep him there. his gas tank looks suspect but we won't know for sure untill he's in a 2-3 round fight.

eh man i like houston

but come on now sakara sucks badly....to think that hes better then jardine is crazy

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.

Sakara's stand up looks to me to be far better than anything I've seen from Keith Jardine so far,but Houston Alexander seems to be a beast,as already stated though,he could hardly talk after his fight at UFC 75 he was so gassed.

i dunno i never liked sakara.....and to be honest his performances have done nothing to impress me

Nothing against Alexander but Jardine ALMOST had him. I think he is explosive as hell but we really need to see more of him to understand where he is at.
