Wonder how much Houston got paid...

...to throw that fight. That was disgusting. That is not how Houston fights, what the **** was wrong with him? It literally looked like he didn't try the entire fight.

Looked like he actually tried to stick to a gameplan, too bad it was a stupid game plan, circle and throw weak leg kicks.

I give Houston some points for sticking to a gameplan but the kicks he was throwing were weak as hell not to mention he was leaving himself wide open to get caught. Some blame is on Kimbo for not closing the distance (I mean seriously the first few minutes there was like a 10 foot gap in between them) and not cutting the ring off when Houston's motion's were all in one direction and extremely predictable. For a fight that was hyped and alot of casual fans were sure to tune in for it was an embarassment imo, neither guy deserves to fight in the UFC again.

I'm sure if he was trying to throw the fight he wouldn't have done his all to nearly end Kimbo with leg kicks. If you really stop and think about it, it was a damn smart game plan, and it almost worked. Kimbo went down in the third and I thought he was staying down. That's not throwing a fight, gentlemen. That's fighting fire with water, and Houston almost pulled it off. But none of us could have predicted what Kimbo pulled off in the second round. Props to the man for a well deserved win, though he needs to have his knee checked out... that's going to be a target from now on.

Houston is a just a dumbass plain and simple. Would have got KO'd anyways. Kimbo outclassed him in every aspect of the fight barring the kicks.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva

Houston fought his last fight in pretty much the same manner except he was fighting a guy that couldnt strike for shit so he threw more leg kicks. He was afraid to engage Kimbo because he has a weak chin and Kimbo has heavy hands. Houston wanted to take out his legs but was way to timid. You dont win fights by being afraid of your opponent. Someone should have explained this to Houston before the fight.
