Seeing as how Alvarez is a better fighter, I see him winning a decision.

Better striker, better on the ground, and a really solid wrestler.

He has beaten guys like Imada, Neer, Kawajiri, Hansen, Riley and Kikuno.

Huerta's best win was against Clay Guida.

When you sub guys like Kikuno, Neer and Imada, you're the better fighter.

huerta was never fully dedicated to MMA when he was in the UFC and still gave Gray Maynard a great fight and a pretty good fight with Kenflo, two very highly ranked LWs.


I wouldnt just assume Alvarez is a much better fighter than Huerta, but i think he is mentally ahead and trains more properly, so i give him the edge.

Still should be a great fight.

Well Alveraz does have the wrestling background. We also know that he destroyed former UFC lightweight Josh Neer. However I don't think that if Alveraz wins he will destroy Huerta the way he did Neer!

Bellator FC 33 card loaded

Quote:
As if this month's Bellator 33 card weren't already loaded enough with lightweight champ Eddie Alvarez vs. Roger Huerta's non-title fight and a Lyman Good vs. Ben Askren championship matchup, officials have added some additional starpower.

Former Olympian Rick Hawn, ex-EliteXC champ Wilson Reis, WEC vet Deividas Taurosevicius and other notables are part of the card.

Bellator 33 takes place Oct. 21 at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia.

The night's main card airs on FOX Sports Net.

The Alvarez (20-2 MMA, 4-0 BFC) vs. Huerta (21-4-1 MMA, 1-1 BFC) bout came about following an injury to season-two tournament winner Pat Curran (12-3 MMA, 3-0 BFC). Curran earned a title shot with the tourney run, but as MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) first reported, he was forced off the card with a shoulder injury. That opened the door for Huerta, who was eliminated by Curran in the semifinals of the tourney.

In the co-headliner, current welterweight champ Good (10-0 MMA, 3-0 BFC) meets former NCAA Division I national wrestling champ and season-two tourney winner Askren (6-0 MMA, 3-0 BFC) in a five-round title fight.

Also on the main card is 2004 Olympic judoka and undefeated MMA fighter Hawn (8-0 MMA, 0-0 BFC) vs. fellow welterweight LeVon Maynard (10-6 MMA, 0-0 BFC), as well as former EliteXC bantamweight champ and season-two and season-three Bellator tourney competitor Reis (10-2 MMA, 3-2 BFC) vs. WEC and IFL veteran Taurosevicius (12-4 MMA, 0-0 BFC). The Brazilian Reis now calls Philadelphia home and should have a home-field advantage.

A preliminary card heavy on local talent includes light-heavyweight submission specialist Tim Carpenter (5-0 MMA, 0-0 BFC) vs. longtime IFL fighter Jamal Patterson (5-2 MMA, 0-0 BFC) and WKA Muay Thai champion Tuan Phan (2-3 MMA, 0-0 BFC) vs. fellow flyweight Nick Cottone (8-2-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC).

Additionally, one-time UFC fighter Chris Liguori (11-8 MMA, 0-0 BFC) takes on fellow lightweight Eduard Guedes (6-0 MMA, 0-0 BFC), Lester Caslow (6-3 MMA, 0-0 BFC) meets fellow featherweight Kenny Foster (7-2 MMA, 0-0 BFC), and bantamweight Lewis Cassner (0-0 MMA, 0-0 BFC) takes on Francis Evans (0-0 MMA, 0-0 BFC).

The full Bellator 33 card includes:

MAIN CARD

* Champ Eddie Alvarez vs. Roger Huerta (non-title lightweight fight)
* Champ Lyman Good vs. Ben Askren (welterweight title fight)
* Rick Hawn vs. LeVon Maynard
* Deividas Taurosevicius vs. Wilson Reis

PRELIMINARY CARD

* Tim Carpenter vs. Jamal Patterson
* Nick Cottone vs. Tuan Pham
* Eduard Guedes vs. Chris Liguori
* Lester Caslow vs. Kenny Foster
* Lewis Cassner vs. Francis Evans

This card is gonna be action packed! Can't wait... Outside of UFC and WEC, Bellator is the show I'm usually the most hyped for and this is no exception!
