I think these fighters would be suitable for the "next" step:

Jorge Gurgel (tough lil SOB)
Melvin Guillard (Huerta has yet to fight a guy wit heavy hands)
Alvin Robinson (a descent fighter wit good ground skills)
Sam Stout (Has FOTN award written all over it)
Damn good!! Repped.

I think Heurta is being pampered because he's the pretty poster boy for the ufc. He should be given an actual ranked lightweight next.


(btw, he has fought and lost to Guiliard already but it was ruled a nc because Guiliard was greased. Greased or no greased, Heurta got his face smashed in).

I think he should fight Guillard next when Guillard comes off suspension and Guillard will smash his face in.

Huerta is being built up he aint being protected ffs you step in the ring and get your face smashed and then say yep they are going easy. Huerta hasnt asked for a Title shot he knows he aint ready just yet.

So he didnt really lose then. Besides, sounds like ya wouldnt mind seeing them square off again!?

Both fighters have come along way since then and I think it would be a good matchup

i think kenny florian vs roger huerta would be a great fast paced fight. both guys have good stand ups, i'd give the nod to kenny in this fight. kenny's leg kicks are hard to deal with.

Has no one said Frank Edgar vs. Roger Huerta yet?

I think that would be FOTN no matter what the card looks like.

I agree. Both guys come out and give it all. What a war this would be. I like both fighters but I like Guida more and I think he would take this. Guida had bad luck but now thats all behind him with his win over Maximus. Guida be split decison tko rd 3.

IF crocop loses...

Who do you see him fighting next? If he loses to Kongo, he would have fought
-Eddie Sanchez (W)
-Gabe Gonzaga (L)
-Cheick Kongo (L)

I began thinking, who would the UFC put him up against for his next fight? Would we see him fight another 'no name' or would they just put him in bigger fights. And if they do put him in a big fight, would he have deserved it? Who would the 'no name' be? Who would the 'big fight' be?

IMO, if Crocop loses to Kongo, casual MMA fans and UFC watchers will seriously lose interest in him. Having said that, he would have another 3 fights in his contract which should be enough to 're-build' him up for the casual fans and eventually put him in a big fight or possibly a title fight. I think that if he loses against Kongo, the UFC will put him in an 'Eddie Sanchez-esque' fight and then put him in a bigger fight right away, eventually putting him in the huge fight they wanted since they signed him.

Let me get some things crystal clear first.
-Replies along the line of 'HURRRRR BUT CROCOP WONT LOSE HURRRR' are not welcome, this is a hypothetical situation.
-I am aware that Crocop will most likely win against Kongo
-I am not saying that Crocop is 'done' or that he isnt a skilled fighter.
-I am not saying that a loss to Kongo would end his career
-I am not insulting him
-I respect him as a fighter
