Houston Alexander catches son Talking Dirty, Challenges him to Boxing Match, gets Arrested | | Cagepotato (http://www.cagepotato.com/houston-alexander-catches-son-talking-dirty-challenges-him-to-boxing-match-gets-arrested/)


As MMA fans, we’ve seen our fair share of “WTF” moments. From freak show fights to flashy knockouts to Jon Fitch partying like a rockstar to freaking Jose Canseco, you would think that we’ve seen it all and nothing could surprise us. Yet sometimes a story comes along that is so bizarre that even we are unable to make sense of it.

Houston Alexander returned to the spotlight this weekend. When we last checked in on the former UFC light heavyweight, he was getting his lights turned out by ex-hockey enforcer Steve Bosse. If you thought that was as low as things could get for Alexander, then prepare to flabbergasted.

Here is the latest update on Alexander, courtesy of KMTV News Omaha, via MiddleEasy:

Police ticketed popular MMA fighter Houston Alexander for child abuse after the 39-year-old became upset with his 16-year-old and made him box with him.

Police reports say officers were called to a home near 44th and Maple for a domestic disturbance. The older Alexander told them he was having trouble with his teen son, who was “having explicit sexual contact on Facebook with some unknown females.” The 16-year-old reportedly lied and “made him very upset.”

According to police reports, “Alexander then retrieved boxing gloves and told his son, ‘If you are going to lie to me, then we are going to box.’” The two reportedly boxed in the basement. Officers describe the teen as having a “slight bloody nose and pain to his right side.”

Alexander was cited for misdemeanor [sic] child abuse.

In other words, “The Assassin” caught his son talking dirty to some lady friends on Facebook. When his son lied about it, Houston Alexander challenged him to fight on the spot. After the impromptu boxing match, police arrested Houston for child abuse.

We may be hack journalists, but even we have our limits. If there’s two things we don’t joke about at Cage Potato, it’s child abuse and surprise vans- so we’ll decline to comment on this any further. You guys in the comments section, on the other hand….

You imagine if Houston got flash KO'd by his son.

It doesnt seem that big of a deal really I mean unless he was going full force. Id wanna learn to box if my dad was a professional fighter.

Honestly I don't see a problem with this at all. He obviously wasn't going full blast on him, just trying to teach him to have character.

? Really, how is this political?

Who called the cops? It seems like pretty shitty parenting, like Houston is bullying his son. Teaching him to box is one thing, but forcing him to box to teach him a lesson about morality is messed up and doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Depends on the relationship between Dad and son really, and especially lets say if some of those girls were of questionable age, as err.... The kids 16, who wouldn't be wanting pics of his 16 yr old classmates naked - AT THE age of 16.

Putting aside the fact bloody noses and sore ribs are fairly common even in standard sparring sessions, boxing with your son OUT OF ANGER really doesn't sound like a great idea.

“having explicit sexual contact on Facebook"

^^^ Is that even possible?

I do not think it is a big deal.

We don't know the story about the son and what kind of women he was talking to via Facebook so we can not judge about if Houston exagerated or not.

But anyway it is not that he began to punch or choke his son leaving him with serious injuries.
They boxed and Houston obvioulsy did not went full force, he just wanted to teach his son a good lesson without hurting him seriously.
A bloody nose and a sored body is not that big of a deal, It is not that he broke a nose or an orbital bone or some teeth and now the poor son is in a hospital recovering from serious damage.

Right and teaching his kid to hit out of anger is a great idea too.

I don't believe I belong on this site anymore,I'm pretty disappointed in a lot of things I've been reading from posters I used to respect.It's been fun though.

I think most mist the point his boy was lying to him. If you can't trust your kid than where are you. Theirs more to this than the artical shows us. On one hand this could be a perfect way to teach his son respect, or totally immoral act by Houston. I'd rather see his son get a bloody nose and sore ribs and be a good citzen. Than just say don't do this and wind up a criminal. Yes exagerated some but a point

I think the point missed is that it's fucking wrong to hit your kid like that no matter what he did.Lying,cheating,stealing....you don't spar with your fucking kid to teach him right from wrong.At best you spar with him to teach him to fight,and even then,Houston's a trained fighter,and a grown ass man hitting a 16 year old kid.

I mean fuck,if that's the only way to get a win,maybe the cock sucker should retire.I'm also sick of the whole"This story has more than meets the eye"bullshit.The article is here for discussion,so discuss what is fucking there and quit trying to validate what you find to be okay with bullshit excuses like"Oh well there's more or less to it than that."

I have no use for a bleeding heart liberal neither,if that's how you wanna label someone.But I have a kid and I'm telling you right now the only thing Houston taught his kid(besides how to make a bad decision and go to jail)is to fucking take out his anger and frustration with people through violence.WHICH IS BAD FOR MMA,which I notice a lot of you like to pretend to care about,so long as it parallels your personal views.

Now I'm done.RH you're a mod,maybe you know how to erase my profile,as I couldn't find out a way.I tried last month over some other bullshit I read but I came back and tried to get over it,but I absolutely 100% don't belong here and ask that my membership to the site be completely terminated.

I'd have to say that houston was wrong to force his son to box with him as punishment, but at the same time, if he'd been training his son to box for some time, then it's not as bad as it would seem. However if his son never boxed a day in his life, then Houston was just being an asshole at that point. And at 16, if you haven't taught your son how to be an honorable man toward women and life in general, then it probably a little too late. This is one of those weird cases, I'm all for a father taking a strong hand with his son, teaching him respect and manhood. But if Houston basically beat a defenseless teenager up, that's not Fatherhood, it's just assault. Another thing, is that we don't know if his son is a really well conditioned athlete like his father. If he bloody the nose of a kid who walks around at 200 plus with 2% body fat, then it's a little different than a 140 lb weakling who doesn't exercise. and 16 is almost 18, so I don't find it as offensive as though it was a 12 year old.....

I think a lot of the responses here has to do with the fact that this generation of teenagers are pretty soft and disrespectful. Maybe Houston wasn't right to force his son to box, but I can understand the frustration of raising a teenage son in this culture from my experience with my now 18 y/o little brother. There were times when I could have gone to jail trying to teach him respect.....It's not easy at all.

This story is vague on details so a bleeding heart liberal would go nuts over the given information out of ignorance instead of waiting and then judging the situation once the whole story is out.

And yes. It is ignorant to fly off the handle. I did it when I was drunk and read the Lesnar hunting shit. Which brought my cognitive level down significantly and made me look like a dink in the process.

one time when i was acting up back in the day my threatened me with mandatory boxing lessons in the back yard interestingly enough.

I think this is probably blown out of proportion. If the kid wound up in the hospital or something then okay, but a slight bloody nose.....he's probably had much worse getting in schoolyard tussles and playing sports.

You're sick of people wanting to know more before passing judgement? That seems like an odd thing to be sick of.

There is just not enough here for me to have an informed opinion.

I'm sick of you always acting so reasonable and not jumping to conclusions. Why don't you just form your opinion based on the very few details available to you?

It's tough....it depends how sexually explicit his son was online.

If there were nude 16 year old girls on his computer, and that computer was also used by Houston Alexander, then he could be charged with child porn.

In some states, if his 16 year old son received pics from 15 year old nude women, he could be charged with some statutory shit.

There are a lot of factors, and if his son had any nude pics of girls under the age of 18, then Houston's only legal option was to turn his son into the cops, but how many fathers would do that to their son.

What we do know, is that Houston was stupid for doing what he did. He is always a very easily marketable guy with a real positive life, doing work with charities too. All that shit is out the window now. He should have known better and known that doing something like he did would get around.

i have no problem with discipline/punishment in parenting..what i dont agree with is getting physical with your child out of anger. imo there are plenty other things you can do besides hitting them.

All these people saying "I see nothing wrong with that!" Obviously never got their 16 year old ass kicked by their 30-40 year old dad.

I have, and trust me, theres something wrong with it.

I hear yeah bro, Its been getting to me as well. Sucks we have to lose another member with a soul. Great post.


one time when i was acting up back in the day my threatened me with mandatory boxing lessons in the back yard interestingly enough.

Lots of times when I was growing up I got my ass handed to me by my old man. And I was a punk ass kid who did everything under the sun from stealing cars to selling drugs out the front door.

Theres better ways to get to your kid without punching them in the face.

Not even mentioning the fact that Houston is a trained fighter with lethal weapons for hands.


It's tough....it depends how sexually explicit his son was online.



Lol how so? Talking to a girl your age=5 punches to the face. Talking to a girl underage=20 punches to the face and Child porn= 3 5minute rounds?

No matter what his son did, he doesnt deserve to stand in front of a full grown man in a confrontation and receive punches to the face. Especially something as stupid as not following the computer rules.

Imagine how scared this kid would be. I know its not fun, I've been there. I got plates and screws in my hand and arm from fighting with my old man because he was "teaching me a lesson" at 16... while hes 36 and ripped.

My hand is never going to be the same, my grip strength is fucked in my left hand. I have a hard time flicking a lighter or holding a cup/mug filled with something. I got rods all in my wrist, getting arthritis pains at 24.

Some lesson.:grinsmile3:



(Sorry for the mini-rant its obviously a pretty sensitive issue for me, DAMN YOU DAD!:grinsmile36: lol)
