i dont know if this has been mentioned yet (it prob has) but this fight is on the UFC 75 card!
who do you guys think wins this fight? and how?
i predict Houston Alexander wins via tko.
Alessio Sakara is 2 and 2 in the ufc, with one decesion and one tko win, and his losses are by tko and sub.

also i need rep, lol!

i hope Sakara wins. his ground game is improving and his boxing has always been good. there's always room for improvement, and i think he has tons of potential.

anything can happen in this fight.

i really hope huston wins, i think with what i have seen of him, (which is little) he looks like he can make really exciting fights!
if he wins i say have him fight Sokoudjou if the ufc could get him over? then have the winer fight the winner of chuck vs wandy for a title shot?

he's not ready for Sokoudjou. he needs more than just 1 fight. you are putting Houston with the big names. He's not up there, but has the potential. There are many fighters ahead of him and are more deserving of a title shot.

lol, i know. but i saying is if he wins his next fight with ease or in a exciting manner, they give him one big name and then the top contender for the belt!
i do not think he is great, but you said he is not ready for Sokoudjou... Sokoudjou has 4wins(3ko's and 1dec) and 1loss(byTKO in the 1st)
Alexander has 7wins(4ko's, 1 dec, 1 sub) and 1loss(his 1st fight and it was a sub)
i think Alexander has not fought they same comp but i think anyone with hard fast hands that likes to throw them makes for a good fight?
you agree?

p.s. you live in socal? where in socal, i live in the south bay(hermosa beach)

i completley disagree with your post.

well let's look at Sokoudjou defeats: Lil' Nog, Arona. Both fighters are top 10 LHW's. Sokoudjou deserves recognition.

Houston defeated Jardine who is nowhere near Nog's or Arona's skill level. Jardine in my opinion isn't even top 15 at the moment in LHW's.

Houston has a LONG way to go. He's KO'd 4 people. That's great, it's not how many people you KO, it's the caliber of fighters you compete with.

i never said he has fought the same comp.... i think you misunderstood me.... i said they have NOT fought the same type of comp.
i was just stayting their records, with numbers, nothing more.....
i do not think alexander is that good, i think he is exciting..... nothing more or nothing less......
you agree with that?

im not really impressed with alexander defeating a list made up entirely of fighers ive never heard of, and i definitely wouldn't say the jardine fight showed me enough to believe he will even make a dent at lhw...

ill pick sakara, just because of that.

alexander was monstorous last time. i want him to win again just like he did. only thing i didnt like was how he acted kinda cocky during the interview. saying he slipped and stuff. yeah right.

This is a tough one for me because I just feel like I haven't seen enough of Alexander to make an informed decision. If I were basing it solely on his fight with Jardine I would lean towards him, but right now I'm going to lean towards Sakara even though his record in the UFC isn't the greatest, I feel if he can survive Houston's initial onslaught, he may have a chance.
