Houston Alexander entered the Octagon at UFC 71 in the role of the underdog. Forty-eight seconds and 20-plus unanswered strikes later, Alexander propelled himself from relative unknown to legitimate threat. The Omaha, Nebraska resident made his successful UFC debut dominating Keith Jardine.

Yeah, he's a hell of a striker against Jardine. I'll wait till he fights a top contender before I call him the cats meow.

I was never impressed by jardine to begin with. We'll see if this guy can hold his own against actual contenders.

^^ see but the only reason that happend was because jardine distracts people with his absolutly retarted stance. The first time I saw it I said...."wtf..."
