In a move that everybody expected, the UFC released Houston Alexander from their roster on Thursday. Alexander has lost four straight bouts inside the UFC since beating Alessio Sakara at UFC 75.

The final straw came after a very cautious Alexander lost a decision to Kimbo Slice at “The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights Finale” last Saturday.

The UFC had high hopes for Alexander after he shocked Keith Jardine at UFC 71 and then followed it up with an impressive win over Sakara.

Unfortunately, things never panned out for the Nebraskan who has been on the losing end in 4 out of his last 5 bouts. Alexander won a fight in Adrenaline MMA before losing to Kimbo.
