Houston Alexander proved that he's not the man who quits. When he starts something he finishes it no matter what it takes.

Houston “The Assassin” Alexander (11-6) seem primed to provide the nation with entertaining videos. Unfortunately, in five of his six fights the clips involved someone else whose hand is raised at the end of the coil. But he refused to quit, even if it’s his last option. After the struggle he claimed victory over UFC veteran Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou.

“My kids, I always tell those guys never give up,” Alexander said following the win. “I proved that you never give up. Never give up. I think it was a flash (knockdown), I really didn’t see it coming because I was trying to get position. Apparently, he got to the position before I did.It was a flash, but the conditioning got me through it, and I ended up getting on top of him the last part of the round.”

Two assassins have taken the stage for a battle of ammunition in Texas, as Houston "The Assassin" Alexander faced Rameau Thierry "The African Assasin" Sokoudjou in Shark Fights 13. And in the twist of events, The Assassin has won over Sokoudjou via TKO.

Former UFC stars Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou and Houston Alexander gave the Texas fans a great Saturday night fight, as they faced each other in Shark Fights 13. With Alexander badly hurt by Sokoudjou, it’s entertaining to note how Alexander came back and win by technical knock out in the second round. At the start of the fight, it seems that Sokoudjou would finish his opponent swiftly. But later in the first round, Alexander turned the tables on to ground his contender. Then early in the second round, Alexander knocked Sokoudjou down with a knee, followed by and uppercut. The former got on top of the latter and kept hammering until the referee stopped the fight. A one-dimensional brawler, Alexander will always be an entertaining fighter. This is the kind of battle that Shark Fights needs.

Is this some kind of a twisted event? Or Alexander just got the right projectiles for weaponry? Share your insights by leaving a comment.
