    Everyone loves to see big punchers and hopefully he will prove to be exciting. I'm still not buying his B.S. "Naw, I slipped" in regards to Jardine rocking him early, but hey....how could you not go crazy when he was letting Jardine have it?

    He almost had a moment with Big Nog the other day as well. Poor guy...Always a bridesmaid, Never the bride...

    did you actually see his last fights, or do you mean looking at his record. His record is actually pretty solid for a guy new to the bigger venues...but I'm curious if you were able to get any of his previous fights.

    I wouldn't even put Jardine top 15 in the weight class...he fought a smart fight against Griffin, but I think Forrest would take the next 2, if they fought to a rubber match...and I don't think Forrest is particularly good.

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.

    He is fighting Sakara next. That will be an interesting fight since they both like to stand up and brawl.

    still to early for me to have any judgement on him yet.i need to see him fight atleast 3 or 4 more times against some great fighters to give you my idea on him

    lhw is way to deep only see him being in the top 15 or top 10 but who knows havent seen much of him and fighters always improve

    Jardine caught him before he got the holy hell beat out of him and from what ive seen Houston has power but lacks still lacks standup. I expect Sakara to KO him rather easily
