Report: Houston Alexander vs. James Irvin moved to UFC Fight Night 13

MMA Weekly reports:

Houston Alexander will return to Ultimate Fighting Championship action on April 2. has confirmed with sources close to the fight that he will face James Irvin as a part of the main card of the upcoming UFC Fight Night leading into the seventh installment of “The Ultimate Fighter.”

This is a fight that was announced awhile back as part of a possible March 8th card in England, one week after UFC 82. Since that card seems to be botched at this point, lots of fighters are getting moved around to other cards. This should be a slugfest and a fight that’s tailor made for Houston to win, especially if it stays standing. UFC Fight Night 13 is turning into a very high caliber event, better on paper than some of the pay per views last year.

    There are just too many good fights on this Ultimate Fight Night, makes me kinda wonder if they aren’t grooming this card to be a CBS card…

    Maybe UFC is trying to boost the number of viewers in non-pay per format to show what a solid card could do on a major network. That could mean lots more revenue than pay per view.

  • Jiu-Jitsu Guy says:

    Houston is a good fighter, but I was appalled how he stood over two of his first knockout opponents after beating them. I’m not a fan of people who humiliate their opponent after winning.

    He is the typical ground and pound fighter. I am losing respect for these guys as each day goes by. Yes, Randy is the exception, but his wrestling is off the charts, which makes GnP only one of his options, not the primary one.

    I would like to see him get his face pounded in again. He deserves it.
