Houston Alexander Couldn't Hear at the Ultimate Fight Night

Ash AndersonContributor ISeptember 18, 2008

“The crowd was so loud that I couldn’t hear my corner. If I heard them and knew, you know, there are 10 seconds left, five seconds left, whatever, I would have tried to hung in there a little longer and survived. But it was so loud and these people were supporting me so much, I couldn’t hear and I had to tap.”

Houston Alexander reports the fans in Omaha, Nebraska as a factor, resulting him tapping out when he could of held on for a second round. Alexander told Yahoo Sports today that the crowd was so loud he couldn't hear his corner causing him to tap out when there was only seconds left on the clock.

Many believed that Alexander could have won this fight against Eric Schafer, but things didn't work out as planned and Alexander got his third straight loss in the UFC Octagon.
