Houston Alexander returns to the Ultimate Fighting Championship after suffering his first defeat in the Octagon, to Thiago Silva, when he takes on “The Sandman” James Irvin on April 2 in Broomfield, Colo. He had entered the UFC with a bang, destroying MMAWeekly.com's No. 5 ranked light heavyweight Keith Jardine in a stunningly fast knockout.
Alexander looks to put himself back on the winning track in a few weeks and claims he is more than ready to go. “I'm ready to get back in the ring,” he commented to MMAWeekly Radio. “I'm excited for this next card because they stacked it up.”
