UFC Fight Night in Omaha: Houston Alexander Will Have the Home Crowd on His Side

Here's Houston Alexander, a native of Omaha, talking on the local news about his bout with Eric Schafer at UFC Fight Night at the Omaha Civic Auditorium on Wednesday night:

Alexander isn't a great mixed martial arts fighter, but he does give the fans great shows: In his four UFC fights, he has two first-round knockout wins and two first-round knockout losses. I'm sure he'll have the home crowd behind him, and it's good to see that he's promoting the fight on the local news.

Also, kudos to Channel 6 in Omaha for reporting on UFC Fight Night and for explaining to the viewers that MMA is a legitimate sport. Fox 5 in New York could learn a thing or two from Channel 6 in Omaha.

After the jump, a couple more UFC Fight Night-related videos, featuring Alessio Sakara and Wilson Gouveia.

Here's Allesio Sakara talking about his fight with Joe Vedepo:


And here's Wilson Gouveia talking about his fight with Ryan Jensen:

UFC Fight Night will be shown on Spike, Wednesday night at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific, immediately preceding the first episode of The Ultimate Fighter 8.
