UFC Quick Quote: Houston Alexander has one kidney

houston alexander

"I think at 35-years-old you're a lot more grounded. I think you have a few more responsibilities, so you've actually got something to fight for. In 2000, my daughter needed a kidney and a lot of people ask, ‘why does he have this scar on the side of his stomach?' Well the scar on the side of my stomach is from me giving my daughter a kidney in 2000. When your kids need something like that, you don't think twice."

-- Light heavyweight Houston Alexander tells MMAWeekly.com about his life as a fighter and a father of six during a recent interview (Note: He did not get shot like some people like to suggest). The "Assassin" takes on Thiago Silva this Saturday, November 17, during the televised main card action at UFC 78: "Validation" live on pay-per-view (PPV).
