MMAJunkie is reporting, the possible fight between Houston Alexander and James Irvin will likely take place at UFC 83 in London, England.
A source close to Houston Alexander (8-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the UFC light heavyweight has accepted a fight with James Irvin (13-4 MMA, 3-3 UFC) and is simply awaiting word on whether Irvin’s camp will green-light the bout.
Alexander’s UFC winning streak was derailed by Thiago Silva at UFC 78, exposing Alexanders weak ground game.
James Irvin has had some bad luck in the cage recently, getting caught with an illegal knee at UFC 79. Irvin was given the win but, was unable to continue from the blow and had to leave the cage on doctors orders.
In his previous fight at UFC 71, Irvin injured his knee during the fight with Thiago Silva and was given the TKO (Due to Injury).
