Houston Alexander out of UFC 98

PRO MMA (promma.info) has learned from multiple sources that Houston “The Assassin” Alexander (8-4) has pulled out of his UFC 98 bout with Andre Gusmao (5-1) due to a broken hand suffered in training.

Alexander joins three other fighters, James Irvin, Josh Koshcheck and Yushin Okami, who have also pulled out of the card due to injury. Gusmao is still on the card and Krztsztof Soszynski has been confirmed as the replacement for Alexander.

Alexander was in dire need of a win after losing three straight fights to James Irvin, Thiago Silva and Eric Schafer.

He followed that up with another first round destruction of Alessio Sakara at UFC 75.
