not even close to true. mishima has fought everyone from everywhere, he's much more experience and talented that the guys huerta fought. florian also finished his fights, huerta is the decision master. huerta barely beat guida, who has lost to the other top guys in the division. din thomas for instance, beat clay and then lost to florian. however you slice it (injury for thomas or not) florian is ahead of huerta in the standings. the guys huerta was fighting were guys who had never fought in the ufc before, and had ~10 fights total. hardly fights that would put you in title contention. the whole idea with huerta fighting so often, and fighting cans, was to build his name up, not put him in title contention.
