MMAWeekly.com on Thursday spoke with light heavyweight Houston Alexander, who faced Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson at "The Ultimate Fighter" season 10 finale on Dec. 5 in Las Vegas. In a fight widely criticized by fans and UFC president Dana White, Alexander talks about his thoughts on the experience and his future in the sport.

(This is part two of an exclusive two-part interview with Houston Alexander.)

I think Props should be given to Steven Marrocco for asking some hard questions during this intervies, in part one he said some things that takes real guts.

We all expected a better fight obviously, but i will say that Houston is very respectful and professional even after all the criticizing. i cant say weather i care if hes not fighting in the ufc anymore though cause bottom line is we watch this sport for exciting fights to watch top notch martial artists display their skills. houston did neither that night and if he continues to fight those fights he will struggle in any organization.

Dana doesn’t fight. You’re organizing the fights, but you don’t fight. You’re not to know what guys are feeling and what we’re going through when we’re in the ring. They wanted Kimbo and me to start wailing on each other. They wanted to see a 30-second fight.



so true
