I've see Houston in action as a motivational speaker to kids through his radio gig. Great guy... not bad look either! I'm glad he is doing well in this growing sport. And DANG! Did you see Liddell get K.O.ed in less than two minutes!

I was in Vegas for this fight and i was impressed with Houston for two reasons...in the ring he's AWESOME...and out of the ring, he is truly one of the nicest, most genuine people I've ever meet. There are great things in the works for this Gentleman...and he is most deserving of them all.
