Houston Alexander vs. James Irvin II at Shark Fights 14 on March 11th in Lubbock, Texas

A light heavyweight rematch between former UFC stars, Houston Alexander and James Irvin will go down at Shark Fights 14 at the Fair Park Coliseum in Lubbock, Texas on March 11th, 2011, less than two years after “The Sandman” ended the fight in just eight seconds. Alexander announced the news via his Twitter page earlier today.

Alexander has got his career back on track following a series of defeats inside the octagon, putting together a two-fight winning streak which included a very impressive come-back win over Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou on the Shark Fights 13 event in September.

Irvin was last in action on January 29th when he delivered an illegal knee to Mike Crisman resulting in a no-contest. Prior to that he’d lost via first round triangle choke at the hands of Jorge Oliveira and has won just one of his last six professional fights.
