    I agree you have to be a fan of his – thats what makes MMA so good. The unpredictability of the fight outcome is what drives me to watch every single event I can.

    Houston brings it and people should be scared.

    nuff respect to houston. i wish more fighters had his attitude about fighting. you fight for us! we the fans demand action and we enjoy nothing more than highlight kos. nothing worse than a fighter who just fights for points to win, running away from action or applying the lay and pray for 3 rounds. im a martial artist and i do understand the beauty of all techniques and the chess game that occurs on the ground at times, but sometimes you have to throw caution into the wind and give the fans what they want, even if u lose, youll always get the good fight cards and good payouts because if the fans love you , theyll pay to watch you every time. i dont care how good josh kos is or tim sylvia is, when i hear their fighting on a card i could care less, cuz i know i its gonna be a snoozer. but for a guy like houston with only 2 ufc fights under his belt, when i see his name you better believe i get excited to watch. thx for risking your ass for the fans houston, i for 1 appreciate and respect it :)
