People will disagree with me and thatís fine but if he has a rematch with Jardine I'm confident he would lose.

jeesus.. boxing is about the least exhausting form of combat sport.. REALLY sweet to watch, but people can seriously box for an hour straight and be fine. find someone who can grapple for an hour straight and he could make an ironman look like a complete *****.
umm no i think that is the complete opposite, grappling takes way less energy that striking, it isnt even comparable.

especially bjj grappling, doesn't take a lot of energy to just lay there on your back and fire off submissions.

as far as your opinion on Alexander, i would take it with a grain of salt considering the BS in the rest of your post

Before the fight with jardine, he said he hits hard. He showed that in that fight, so if he says his groung game is just as good as anyone in the UFC, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

I like him more as a person than a fighter now actually. Looking out for his kids, teachin the youngins about classic hip hop and a radio show. That deserves some respect.

Plus, he knocks people out.

Well tell us why he would win. We got completly dismantled by Houston in the first fight in 46 seconds. What would stop Houston from doing it again?
