Oh yeah... heard an interview with him on radio just before he went down to fight in that championship round. What impressed me was how much he talked about being a dad and about his kids.

Here is what Wikipedia had:

Houston Alexander, also known as "The Nebraskan Assassin" (born March 22, 1972) is an American mixed martial artist, currently fighting at light heavyweight for the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He is also a well-known hip-hop artist in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.[1]
