Yeah, he did beat Jardine but at least Jardine has the fan base and the name he gained from the Ultimate Fighter. Unless Houston backs this up with another impressive win, I don't see him hanging around for too long in the UFC.
This is sort of my feelings on Gonzaga.. if he beats Randy, then he is the real thing.
Personally, Houston beat Jardine, who gained all of his real hype for beating Forrest, which most consider quite an upset. Until Houston, like Vera and Gonzaga, beat a guy worth something, I can't jump on any bandwagon yet.
