    Vinny needs this win real bad. I always wished he would've panned out in the UFC.

    Should be, but Vinny could easily get ko'd by Houston too.

    At times he was, but that doesn't mean he's not one of the most dangerous BJJ players in all of MMA.

    Not always the case... Though Houston's cardio and gas tank are terrible... he could catch Vinny with a BIG shot early in the fights, and sometimes that's LIGHTS OUT... Man I remember when Houston was on a 6 fight win streak while making his UFC debut against Keith Jardine, and we all remember how that went destroyed the Dean of Mean in 48 seconds of the 1st rnd. Then next fight finishes Alessio Sakara in one minute with that beautiful knee and punches extending his streak to 8 wins and 2 in a row in the UFC. I thought he was going to be huge superstar, and maybe even hold a UFC title.... Boy was I wrong, things went WAYYYY downhill for him. I still always find myself rooting for him though.

    That's what I'm saying. Always a strikers chance and Houston has that
    Also the same here... Some fighters you want so badly in your heart to win. Then you use your head and realize it's highly unlikely.

    For sure, Houston has always had a ton of power in his hands.

    Should be an easy win for Vinny, with a few more wins I really wouldn't be all that surprised to see Vinny get another shot in the UFC.

    I agree with you guys could also be an easy KO for Houston. But if Vinny fights smart he could win by sun within the first round. Unfortunately these days every fighter wants to prove how good at striking he is.
