Hard hitting Houston Alexander is slated to face off against James Irvin at UFC Fight Night 13 according to MMAJunkie. The bout was originally rumored to take place in England at UFC 83, an event which has since been called off by the UFC.
In addition to the Alexander-Irvin fight, the lightweight match between Clay Guida and Sammy Schiavo was also confirmed to take place at UFC Fight Night 13. After trouncing Keith Jardine and Alessio Sakara, Houston Alexander (8-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) will be looking to bounce back after his TKO loss to Thiago Silva at UFC 78. James Irvin (13-4 MMA, 3-3 UFC) is coming off of a default victory over Luis Cane at UFC 79, where he was hit with an illegal knee to the head while down, forcing his opponent to be disqualified. Between all of the booked and rumored talent for UFC Fight Night 13, the show could easily prove to be more worthwhile than your run-of-the-mill UFC pay-per-view.
Here’s the current rumored fight card for the event:
- Kenny Florian vs. Joe Lauzon
- Stephan Bonnar vs. Matt Hamill
- Karo Parisyan vs. Thiago Alves
- Houston Alexander vs. James Irvin
- Clay Guida vs. Sammy Schiavo
