The UFC has come to terms with popular light heavyweight contender Houston Alexander on a new five fight deal. The news comes courtesy of Dave Meltzer.
Alexander literally burst onto the MMA landscape last year with a huge KO over Keith Jardine followed by an impressive KO over Alessio Sakara.
His star faded just as quickly however and he’s currently riding a two fight losing streak after being submitted by Thiago Silva and dropped via first round KO at the hands of James Irvin.
