Quoteworthy:

"Whoever came up with Houston Alexander's game plan ought to be kicked in the nuts for about five minutes. I don't know if his coaches came up with that or whatever but not only did they give him the wrong game plan, they completely destroyed everything about Houston Alexander. It was making me sick. I don't know if Kalib Starnes trained him for that fight or what the deal was but it was horrible. Kimbo was chasing him around the ring asking him to engage, trying to make it a fight and Houston didn't want to fight him. If we didn't cut him yet, we're cutting him -- soon."

UFC President Dana White confirms that light heavyweight Houston Alexander will be released from his UFC contract after his game of tag with Kimbo Slice at the Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 Finale back on Dec. 5. "The Assassin," who was brought in to produce fireworks against the bearded brawler, lost a unanimous decision after trying to play keep-away for three rounds, marking his fourth straight loss inside the Octagon. Any Maniacs out there sorry to see him go?
