Roger Huerta's got a new Trainer


Roger Huerta is getting some choice instruction in his new life as a fighter/actor.

Almost a month after losing a hard-fought battle with Gray Maynard at UFC Fight Night 19, Huerta is studying acting with movie star Mickey Rourke and Rourke’s personal acting coach.

Huerta’s manager, Jeff Clark, said his fighter recently flew to New York at Rourke’s request.

“Mickey took him under his wing,” said Clark.

When spoke with Huerta in September, he was in Austin, Texas, with family and taking acting lessons via videoconference with Los Angeles manager Greg Edwards.

“I’ve just got to balance it out with my life, my social life,” said Huerta. “Balance it where I’m not fully just focused on one thing – I’m focused on fighting, and fighting is everything I do. I have to balance it out where fighting is my job, and outside of training, I get to hang out with my family and my loved ones, then the acting thing. Acting, that it’s just my job, and not making it where it’s all that I’m about.”

Huerta is scheduled to film a new movie, “Circle of Pain,” on Oct. 24 with Ling Bai, best known for her work in “Crank: High Voltage” and HBO’s “Entourage.”

Following the movie, Huerta will evaluate options for his fighting future. His exclusive negotiation period with the UFC comes to an end Nov. 14, followed by a one-year period where the UFC can match offers from other promotions. His six-fight deal ended with the Maynard loss.

Clark said Huerta was still intent on fighting.

“After the Maynard fight, he realized how much he loves fighting, and he definitely wants to fight again.”

At first when I read the headline thought, dear god, hope he's not his MMA trainer lol!

Im sure that Rourke will teach him all the lessons there are to be learned when it comes to being a greasy douche. Rourke isnt a bad dude or anything, his appearence just kinda grosses me out. He looks like an eighties metal band hand sex with an emo kid.

I just hope he doesn't follow Mickey's fashion sense.

Whether you hate Rourke's fashion choices, choice words, or douche baggy attitude, there is no denying he's one of the best pure actors in the business. If you want someone to sharp up your acting ability, Rourke can do that for you.

You're just a cook...

Like other people, I misinterpreted this at first.

I agree, Mickey Rourke is a good actor. I won't hold some bad plastic surgery against him. He could school Huerta and give him a lot of useful knowledge IMO.
