Big Time Fighter, Little Known Name

You would think that someone who has been fighting all around the world since 1998 and has fought big names such as Kazuo Misaki, Akihiro Gono, Murilo Rua, and Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller among others would make some huge noise in any organization. Well, recently acquired middleweight veteran Denis Kang (31-10-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will get a chance to do just that against Alan Belcher (13-5 MMA, 4-3 UFC) at UFC 93 in Dublin, Ireland.

Kang, who was acquired by the UFC late last year, has fought in many different types of organizations including Pride, K-1, and Dream. In a recent interview with TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), Kang talked about why he chose now to make the move to the UFC, “Ya well they made me a pretty good offer ya know and at the same time I just thought it was time for a change in my career. Ya know you see a lot of the better fighters go to the UFC now a days and I wanted to be a part of that,” Kang said.

Houston Alexander vs. Eric Schafer (LHW)
Houston really needs a good showing this fight. It would be nice to see him get out of round one. It would also be nice to see him put on a good performance for his home crowd here in Omaha, Nebraska. The crowd goes nuts for Houston.
Rd.1 – Houston comes out like a hurricane. Big knees to the head of Schafer as he tries for a takedown. Schafer goes for a takedown again. Houston with a couple of leg kicks. Schafer wants none of the stand up. Clinched. Knees from Houston. Schafer shoots again. Finally he gets Alexander down and moves to side control. Houston is caught in the crucifix but Houston gets up then gets caught in a guillotine. He pops out but now gets mounted. Schafer in full mount. Eating elbows. Alexander taking a ton of punishment. Schafer wins by arm triangle with one fucking second left. One fucking second. Very sad for Alexander’s hometown crowd. Schafer dedicates his win to Evan Tanner, his hero.
