I agree, I have never really been impressed with Schafer and even though I guess I wouldn't be surprised to see Alexander get subbed in this fight, I expect him to get the KO.

Houston via TKO. His hands are too quick and heavy for Schaffer I'm thinking.

I would never put money on a Houston fight...

With that said, I think this is the equivalent of a coin flip. The BJJ is all Schafer, the clinch is all Alexander. On the feet Houston has power but is poor technically. Schafer wins if he can take the fight to the canvas, Houston wins if he can nullify the takedown and use his aggressiveness/power to goad Schafer into the clinch.

Houston may be a journeyman that will win and lose in spectacular fashion, but he takes this fight convincingly if he can negate Schafer's wrestling, which I doubt.

This main event makes me cry. Two guys that I could care less about. I can't believe he thought the Irvin stoppage was premature, he was damn still until the next punch brought him back.
