MMA You know, I don't think Houston's loss says anything about his fighting ability

    Unlike his loss against Silva, which showed his weak ground game. I think his loss against Irvin doesn't really mean anything besides Irvin having insane KO power.

    Houston and Irvin just both decided to do the right thing to produce that KO. It was like in football, where sometimes the defense just randomly picks the right play that will leave a defender unblocked for a sack. You might say Houston has a weak chin but I don't think there is anyone else that could take a superman punch from Irvin.

    in 4 fights he's been KO'd twice, flash Ko'd once, and didnt get touched on the chin in the other one.

    i'd say he doesnt have a good chin.

    i'd also say getting KO'd from a superman punch 4 seconds into a fight does say something about your fighting ability.


    not to dog the guy, but I think people are just wanting and hoping there is more to him.

    I would like to see his previous fights to see if he took any punishment. His cardio might actually be good because he went to a 5 round decision in one of his fights.

    I agree. HA is a monster. He got a flash KO in that fight much like the Liddell/Jackson Chamionship fight.

    Anyone on any night can get KO'd. HA will be back.

    Yes except that Jackson will beat Liddell 99.999% of the time in similar fashion unless Liddell completely changes his style.

    Well houston's fights are exciting, i like watching him fight
     
  7. I'm not sure it was a 'flash ko' in the fight vs. jardine. He said it was a slip (although he's shown he'll say anything), and I'm not sure what happened. I'll have to find a gif or watch the fight again.

    And being TKO'd from big punches from the mount doesn't indicate anything about one's chin quality.

    Well in their first fight he beat the living shit out of liddel to the point where liddel had to give up.

    He was killing him, it was the only fight where I was worried for someones life.

    He seems to have a weak chin. James Irvin said the Superman punch barely caught him and Houston said the punch was weak. So whats that =
     
  23. I thought Irvin was talking about the first shot he landed on the ground.

    :dunno:

    If you watch the gif, the punch lands PERFECTLY across Houston's chin.
     
  24. also very strong

    and the only black guy in nebraska
