Roger Huerta Wants To Put Acting Aside For Now And Keep Figting!!!

At UFC Fight Night 19 Roger Huerta possibly was fighting for the last time in the UFC. One question that was left unanswered was whether Huerta would make good on his promise to abandon fighting and pursue an acting career full time.
PoopDog talked to Huerta about his plans for the future.
"I can't go out with two losses in a row. I don't think I'm going to call it quits anytime soon. I'm still open to acting. Hopefully we get something going with that, but I'm not going to prioritize (acting) now. I'll still prioritize fighting. If the UFC wants me back, I'd be willing to go back."
What changed to cause Huerta to shift priorities, again. Most likely he over estimated his cross over appeal and couldn't find any bit roles in action movies. Roger still has some serious name recognition and could be a valuable asset for Bellator or Strikeforce so he will have some leverage in future negotiations. Unfortunately for Roger it appears that the UFC has washed their hands of Huerta.


And like How Life B Ez pointed out, i dont think Dana is going to want Huerta to become another to jump on the Strikeforce bandwagon...


I know that the UFC has up to a year to match any offer lets see what happens

He could have fought his last fight in the UFC because of changing his mind about the contract they offered him. Now suddenly he wants to take back their offer, that doesn't happen when you've lost two in a row...

The Maynard fight was quite a while ago as well, I'm surprised nothing has been sorted out yet. We need to see Huerta back in the cage.

I could definitely see him going to Strikeforce at some point, although Zuffa would probably offer him a contract straight away if he threatened to jump ship.

I'm glad he came to his senses and chose the cage over the studio. He has plenty of time to star in crappy movies no one has heard of after his MMA career. He's only 26, acting can wait. Being a mixed martial artist at the highest level, that's what he should be focusing all of his attention on now.

Yeah he totally changed his mind lol... Im glad he changed his mind too, I wonder if he thought because he was the only MMA fighter to be on Sports Magazine and because he has some good wins it was enough to become a movie star....

Or (Which i hope) he just realized how much he loves the sport and not because he wants people laughing at him being a actor because he failed as a fighter. (having lost his last two fights) Who knows

Florian and Maynard are top fighters so losing to them is no joke. Huerta is still a top 10 UFC lightweight at his best though.

I don't mind where he ends up as long as he keeps on fighting.

Very good point, and he finished Guida, something Diego couldn't do.... I'm sure Guida got better when he fought Diego but still... I agree that he should be in UFC and i think they should make a Joe Daddy vs Huerta, he usually does good against other Mexicans lol

Huerta in the SF's LW division would lead to some of the most exciting fights in MMA history. That division is stacked with talented, hungry fighters and the last LW championship bout was being talked about as the fight of the year.


Plus we might get to see Huerta vs Aoki copromotion, the unsubmittable meets the best LW submissionist.

Good point thats probably why he wont make it to SF. If Dana thinks about it like that....

That could make some really sick fights to add to there OK cards. They need more the GM and Fedor for trump cards, now Hendo

Huerta will just change his mind again after someone destroys his will to fight like Kenny Florian did.

Great news. Roger might not be the most technical fighter but he is always exciting to watch.

Don't know if the UFC will want him back though, 2 losses in a row and a dispute with Dana doesn't bode well at all for Roger.

He would be a great pick up for Strikeforce. Would love to see him fight there.
