UFC Quick Quote: Houston Alexander couldn’t hear at UFC Fight Night 15

Quote:


“The crowd was so loud that I couldn’t hear my corner. If I heard them and knew, you know, there are 10 seconds left, five seconds left, whatever, I would have tried to hung in there a little longer and survived. But it was so loud and these people were supporting me so much, I couldn’t hear and I had to tap.”

– Houston Alexander tells Yahoo!Sports.com that if he knew how much time was left in the first round (seven seconds) he perhaps would have tried to last until the bell rather than tap because of an Eric Schafer arm triangle at UFC Fight Night 15: “Diaz vs. Neer” last night. Alexander is from Nebraska and had his hometown crowd vociferously rooting him on until the waning seconds of the opening frame. The loss is Alexander’s third straight, pushing his record inside the Octagon below .500 (2-3).

Edit: Okay, I just misread what the article said. Well, I doubt he would have done any better in round 2. Except for those two knees in the first 20 seconds he basically had nothing for Eric Shafer.

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

I believe his corner was yelling...

"F*@#, man! We TOLD YOU to learn some jitz! You're in the goddam UFC now!"

as well as...

"The ref's not gonna stand you up if you keep getting hit in the face like that!"

My milkshake brings all the girls to the barn.

MOO!

Unless something is going to break, you don't tap. I don't know why these guys are so afraid of being put too sleep...he could have held out until the end of the fight.

I agree. I would not tap from a choke. I've drank enough booze in my life that I'm not worried about killing a few more brain cells

I agree and not to bash him more but those two knees were both illigal and had the ref had his head out of his ass he would have been penalized for them.

He still has 2 fights left on his contract, and with the WEC light-heavy's getting merged with the UFC, he might be stuck on the undercard for awhile before they send him off.
