Do you guys remember how Roger Huerta performed while in the UFC??? He quickly became one of my favorite fighters to watch. He won 6 fights in a row and his last win in the UFC was against Clay Guida in one of the most epic fights iv ever seen. The way he looked just before round 3 started had me thinking at that moment "Man this guy wants this and i think he will manage to turn this around and get the win". And he did just that!! Finished Guida in amazing fashion.
He then fought Kenny Florian and got outpointed and lost the decision. Okay it was a hiccup but all in all not that big of a deal. He then fought Gray Maynard and lost a very close fight only because of Maynards wrestling. People still thought this guy had a great future ahead off him BUT a disagreement with the UFC and his pay led him to never resign a contract. People imagined he would rack up some wins in other companies and then come back to the UFC eventually.
What happened then i dont think anyone could have predicted.
At first nothing seemed wrong because he won his first fight outside of the UFC in an impressive submission victory. Since then he lost his next 4 fights with 3 of them being Tkos/Ko. Loosing to the likes of Eddie and Pat isnt that bad but he got tkoed by "War Machine" (Which is shocking to me) and just recently Zoro koed him BAD!! Here is the GIF to see this magnificent KO.
(Now thats a brutal soccer kick to the dome)
So what happened to Roger Huerta??? Why is his career going downhill so fast. How do you go from decision/split with Kenny and Gray Maynard to getting tkoed by the War Machine. Does this mean that maybe the UFC LWs arnt as good as they seem or is it just Roger Huerta who has went downhill??
