Give Kimbo credit, he's always had pretty good game selection. On Youtube he made himself look like a tough guy by fighting drunken bouncers in parking lots, and now he might fight one of the only guys he has a chance of beating in the UFC.

Alexander still wins this 8 or 9 times out of 10. While Kimbo is a one dimensional striker with no ground game or cardio, so is Alexander. But Alexander hits harder than Kimbo and has more UFC experience. Since the fight will stay standing, Kimbo still has a punchers chance, or maybe a hair more, since striking is his best attribute, but he still loses the majority of the time. The difference is this time when they stop the fight, it will be because the punches actually hurt a lot, not just because Kimbo is as helpless as a baby.

This should be a good fight(If it will happen). I'd say it will be stand up. Houston Alexander does have the better ground game though...

Houston fought a total can in his last fight, but he did look very improved. I know its hard to gauge a fighter when he faces lesser competition, but he looked much more patient and seemed to have a gameplan that he was set on sticking to. If Houston has really changed his game and isnt a balls to the wall, one of us is getting knocked out type of fighter anymore, then i think he will deal with Kimbo pretty easily.

that's ridiculous, moreso that kimbo is getting into the UFC with such a horrible showing in every fight he's ever had in mma.

Kimbo wins by Flying Scissor Heel Hook rd 1.


Unless Houston can lock on his patented gogoplata from rubberguard, that is.
