Houston needs to aim at working on his ground game. The ufc will work itself out, it always does. How many times have we seen doerksen and horn brought back

Rinse and repeat for Houston if he does return to the UFC.

After Houston-Kimbo, I don't know if I want to see him back in the Octagon. Unless maybe it's on the Facebook stream....... Yeah, it takes two to tango, that's why Kimbo isn't around anymore either. (well that and the Mitrione fight) Sure, he had some good brawls, but the UFC isn't the place for brawlers anymore. You have to be a true mixed martial artist to succeed.

I sure hope he has been working on his game. I haven't seen him since the Kimbo fight. Hopefully he has been progressing, and will show us something if he does return.

Houston and Sokoudjou had similar paths, Sokoudjou getting huge upset ko's against Arona and Lil Nog, with Houston knocking out Jardine and Sakara. Then Houston started losing, including a 8 second ko to, if you can believe this, James freakin Irving, with Sokoudjou losing 2/3 fights against Machida and Luiz Cane. They even fought eachother outside the ufc, with Houston winning by tko in a fight of the night. But Now both fighters are on 3 fight win streaks.
I can see the UFC bringing Houston back as a late replacement or something to that effect but unless he has really worked on his ground game, he does little else then waterdown your division

If I remember right, he was scared to engage with Kimbo and ran from him the whole fight. Right?

He'll knock out a few contenders then hit a major losing streak again? sounds exciting
