Roger ‘El Matador’ Huerta is a young fighter with great potential but after going 6-2 in his UFC career, Roger has gone 1-4 in his last 5 bouts. Most recently, Roger received a vicious beating in the hands of Eddie Alvarez (Bellator’s Lightweight champion and one of MMA’s top fighters).
Before losing to Curran, Roger had only dropped two decision victories against title contenders in Kenny Florian and Gray Maynard (a very close fight). While Roger did indeed lose the fight to Alvarez, I do not think Eddie completely dominated the fight. Huerta managed to rock the champion twice and take him down but only so much credit can be given to fighter who could not get his legs underneath him and form a better strategy. In my upcoming article I will discuss why Roger has continued to struggle and what he needs to do to get his career back on track.
So in the mean time (while I’m away), do you think Roger Huerta can make a comeback and grasp ahold of a title if changes are made?
