If Thiago survives the intial attack by Houston and gets into the 2nd round and take it to the ground he should win, he just can't stand in front of Houston though

Hey Damone, thanks for deleting my analysis of the Alexander/Silva fight, bud - I put some effort into that post, you know.

And deanmzi, I think Houston has no chance to be honest. I hope I'm proven wrong but...Houston winning over Silva, it's a looooong, looooong shot.

Good luck to Houston though.

I didn't delete your analysis. I just merged your topic with this one. I could've deleted it, but it was actually a well thought out topic, so I gave you the benefit of the doubt,

He beat Drwal, who is a solid fighter. That's pretty impressive.

the thing about houston that is so hard to deal with is when you fight him, there is no 'feeling out' process.

he comes out like a rabid animal and that is really tough to formulate a gameplan around really. becuz unless your a veteran, it's going to throw you off. i see houston winning rnd 1 becuz of that

i think a lot of top level guys know exactly how to deal with a rabid animal... let him wast time flailing around, while you dodge him and counter with precision over rage!

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it
