Houston just said he’s coming for that belt. What belt he’s talking about I do not know. Razak dislocated his finger. — That’s the first time I’ve ever seen this. I wonder what Urijah Faber thinks…a guy who had TWO BROKEN HANDS and fought the whole fight like that for the most part, using elbows and kicks. In this fight, I would say it’s not the fighter’s fault but how would the doctor know about his finger if he didn’t tell him? — Houston just said he can fight longer than Randy Couture because he’s in better shape. Very strange ending to the evening.
