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.”

Houston will punch him, knock him down, and while he falls down, Irvin will break his arm.

HOUSTON 1ST ROUND TKO!!!

Definitely gonna be R1 KO/TKO for Houston. And most likely KO of the night. I've got a lot of decisions goin down for FN13. Houston doesn't even necessarily need to learn a good ground game to advance his status. Just some good takedown defense.

ill bet someone that he will win via Tapout. i've been hearing from his trainers that its very possible that he might test out his ground techniques againt Irvin. would love too see a Armbar more by Houston than a KO

Will a fighter ever say he's not ready for his opponent?

Houston Alexander will probably win this fight in my opinion. But James Irvin has a punchers chance. Since we know their both going to stand and trade punches with each other.

I've been trying for a while to support James, especially after the Martin KO, but he has such bad luck it's ridiculous...I think Houston takes this one in the first via KO...and James will have nothing to say about it.

Everybody has failed to mention that Alexander is a fish on the ground. If Irvin puts him on his back he should be able to pound him out. War Irvin!!!
