Former UFC fighter hit with child abuse charges

January 4, 2012

Disc jockey-turned MM fighter Houston Alexander has been arrested in his Omaha  home after allegedly forcing his 16-year-old son to participate in a boxing match with him. Alexander, the only UFC fighter in history to lose to KO specialist/novelty act Kimbo Slice, was charged with misdemeanor child abuse.

Alexander told police he caught his son participating in online sex and having”explicit sexual contact on Facebook.” Alexander then accused his son of lying about the incident whereupon he broke out the boxing gloves to teach his son a lesson.
