ProMMA.info exclusive interview – Joey “The Mexicutioner” Beltran

ProMMA.info recently had the pleasure of speaking to one of the main event fighters from last weekend’s 5150 / XFL “New Year’s Revolution” card, Joey “The Mexicutioner” Beltran (10-3). Current 5150 Heavyweight Champion, Beltran defended his title against Houston “The Assassin” Alexander (9-6), who was coming off a much publicized decision loss to Kimbo Slice at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale in December.

The Mexicutioner¬†absolutely dominated Alexander and proved once again The Assassin can’t whack anyone off his back. After nearly two rounds of battering, the referee had seen enough, stopped the fight, and awarded Beltran the TKO victory.

Beltran shared with us his thoughts on the fight, and although it was an important win, why he was not getting overly excited about it. He also had some advice for The Assassin, talked about what is next, who his “dream fight” would be, and more. Enjoy.

Joey Beltran turns Houston Alexander into a stepping stone at “New Year’s Revolution”

Houston “The Assassin” Alexander (9-6), the once-upon-a-time-brawler who has seemingly fallen in love with leg kicks and evasion, proved once again the ground game is his Achilles heel last night in Tulsa, Okla.

Coming off a unanimous decision loss to Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson at “UFC: The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale” in December, Alexander was pitted against a much heavier* Joey “The Mexicutioner” Beltran (10-3) at “New Year’s Revolution”, a 5150/XFL co-promoted event held at the Spirit Bank Event Center.

It was a scene we have witnessed countless times before; wrestler takes striker to the ground and pounds him out. Alexander did his best in round one to land leg kicks and move side-to-side to avoid the takedown. However, it was not long before the Nebraska DJ ended up on his back eating elbows and punches.
