Three straight UFC losses prior to fighting Kimbo, I was a little surprised they brought him back. He was a one hit wonder. I feel bad for Jardine, if he dosen't lose to Houston he could of been in line for a title shot.

Houston, We Have A Problem...less than no surprise here, he's now something like 1-4 in UFC. That won't cut it unless you're Wanderlei Silva.

When fighters do not put on exciting fights,this is to be expected.I actually thought Houston won that fight till I rewatched it.Close fight and he was facing a much bigger man but the reason that fight sucked was entirely his fault.

If fighters want to cirle-engage-cirle-engage they should do so effectively ala Machida or even Bisping.Glad he was cut after that poor performance.

Good. I gave Houston the benefit of the doubt and even did an avatar bet on him

You can see how it went for me!

No surprise, Houston you left some good memories, but you can't circle the ring like my two year old. That was a pathetic performance and exactly what a scared fighter would do. Time to retire or go back to the small time.

I like Houston. This makes me sad for him but honestly i don't know how he has time to compete. He is a busy dude.

Houston should fight in Japan. I know he has a family and he wants to be close by but he might be able to make a name for himself and land some big paydays with some of the fights Dream puts on.

Houston vs Bob Sapp!!!

I really like Houston. I've met him a couple of times in person and he couldn't possibly be a nicer guy. Too bad this all happened to him.

I honestly wonder how much his camp is to blame for this. That gameplan was just... I dunno... not impressive. Or at least not carried out correctly. He looked scared. Like he was unprepared or just flat out scared. Really strange from the guy who usually comes out fired up as all get out. I think Houston should have done what he does best- put on an exciting fight. He should have gone out banging. I think he could have touched Kimbo's chin and put him out. Guess we'll never know, though.

Strikeforce will gobble him up, set him up with Manhoef and we will never see him again.

No, seriously i like Houston...i wish him well wherever he ends up.
