Houston Alexander, Jens Pulver Earn Wins At MMA Fight Pit PPV

A pair of UFC veterans picked up wins in the two featured fights at the first event promoted by MMA Pit Fights.

The event, called Genesis, was seen live on pay-per-view.

Houston Alexander and Jens Pulver each walked out of New Mexico’s famed Pit arena after having their hands raised in victory.

Alexander earned a TKO after the cageside doctor was forced to stop the fight due to a dislocated finger between rounds two and third suffered by Razak Al-Hassan – who also fought in the UFC.

“The Assassin” has now won four straight fights to improve his career mark to 13-6-2.

Pulver, meanwhile, scored a second-round TKO thanks to a bevy of punches against Coty Wheeler. “Lil’ Evil” is now 25-15-1, having won three of his last four fights.

In other action, former The Ultimate Fighter cast member Jamie Yager earned a submission victory over Willie Parks, while Junie Browning, who made a name for himself on TUF, tapped out due to strikes against Jacob Clark in the first round.
