Houston Alexander and Jens Pulver Victorious at MMA Fight Pit “Genesis”

By FCF Staff

Houston Alexander walked away with a TKO win over fellow UFC vet Razak Al-Hassan last night at MMA Fight Pit’s inaugural event in Albuquerque, after Al-Hassan reportedly dislocated his finger and was unable to continue into the third round. With the win, Alexander has now won four straight fights.

“We just took our time and got back to boxing,” Alexander was quoted saying in a news release from the promotion. We used a new technique and it worked. My conditioning was great, I was ready. I’m disappointed in the early stoppage but it happens. But the atmosphere…it was amazing. I can’t describe it. I walked in and it was crazy. It was a great time.”

In another of the feature attractions for the “Genesis” card, veteran Jens Pulver stopped former WEC competitor Coty Wheeler with a series of punches to record his 25th pro win. (Pictured above: Pulver hitting Wheeler)

“I just wanted to stay focused and centered. More than anything I was just so damn scared to be in that cage. The losses come back to haunt you,” said Pulver. “I was really trying to be dialed in and by happy. I’m just really happy. I was trying to find a home and really trying to throw. I wanted to make a statement at 135 pounds, and I knew this guy was really tough and has a great chin. I’m a big ‘Ox’ Wheeler fan. I love his spirit and I love the way he fights. It was just a matter of watch out for his power and watch out for his games. Just stay tight and focus.”
