Human Cock Fighter Blog – Thumpin’ in Tulsa

Hunger breeds aggression breeds success breeds confidence breeds a champion.  At Hillbilly Fight Wear we print a shirt that says “Thump A Stranger.” Well there was a whole lot of thumpin’ goin on in Tulsa on Saturday night.

In a stacked card of 20 fights that included 7 UFC veterans and countless skilled journeymen, very few went the distance. 5150 and XFL put together the deepest mid-level show I have ever seen. The greatest part was that I got to watch the show from backstage.

I cut weight with Victor Moreno and Kevin Burns on Friday after driving the four hours from Kansas City in my ‘93 Chevy Silverado. Seven pounds I shed in two hours at the Aspen Fitness Center. I took this fight Wednesday morning following another last minute offer from matchmaker Cris Powell.

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

Photo by Dave Mandel / Sherdog.com - When Kimbo Slice is a better grappler than you, that could be a hint you need some work on the ground game. Kimbo suplexes Houston Alexander at the TUF 10 Finale.

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.
