I'm a big Huerta fan because I think he's entertaining and fights with alot of heart (more than most guys can say).

The thread title was completely wrong. Bottom line.

IMO, Roger was expecting to face the "I finish fights" Florian and instead he fought the "I'll win the sure way" Florian. That's not a bash against Florian at all. He won fair and square. Smart gameplan.

Roger should have made Kenny come to him. Instead he pursued Florian (winning points in the aggression category) but losing points via strikes, takedowns and submission attempts.

I see the glass half full:

1.) This will without a doubt make Roger a better fighter.

2.) We won't have to hear Kenny blab about how he finishes fights anymore.

Everybody wins!

Florian was much closer to finishing the fight than Huerta was and he definitely wasnt looking for a decision win. He nearly finished Huerta and hit him with some big shots.

Huerta said he was playing for points, not that he necessarily wanted a decision. I felt the same thing watching the fight, that he was playing for points but would go for a finish if the opportunity presented itself.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Florian is more technical than Huerta and that is why he lost. Ken is a guy who creates a gameplan and keeps his composure really well. Huerta on the other hand is caged animal while he's in there, less thinking and all about brute force.

Yeah, kind of gives you an idea of how many people just read the title and feel the need to toss their 2 cents in on the matter. At least read what Roger said before making comments on it people...

Somehow I feel that this thread is completely hopeless though...
