I did notice Houston grabbing on to the shorts of Schafer though. No warning or anything.



Actually he got a warning from the ref

Houston did that same thing to Jardine and no one did anything about it either one knee down is illegal and atleast 1 of those knees were illegal. makes the fact that he lost even better in my opinion couldnt even win with illegal knees.

Good Job Ravashing Red

Legal or not Eric Schaffer has some rocks. HE hung in there and then dominated.

Illegal knees or not, Alexander is awful. I wouldn't pick him in a fight against a pillow.

Alexander's not a big deal b/c he lost anyway. The worst one ever is the Roger Huerta vs Halverson. The knees practically knocked Halverson out and they gave Huerta the obvious TKO b/c he mounted an illegally dazed fighter.

If said it before, Houston Alexander reminds me of Tank Abbott (back in the day). Not exactly a compliment!

Can anyone explain the takedown at the 2:41 mark? Houston had been defending the takedown really well, then he just sort of fell over. Was there a specific move or technique Schafer used? Did he give up?

Pretty damn sure he didnt, the first one didnt land on the face (landed on chest), and the second one Houston lifted shafer before he hit him, making the knee legal.

Close call, he also hit Jardine with an illegal knee on their fight i remember



I don't believe any of his knees in the Jardine or Schafer fight were illegal.



and bill clinton never had sex with monica lewinsky
