UFC Quick Quote: Roger Huerta isn't done with fighting -- he's done with losing

"I think [the Maynard fight] could have gone either way and it’s my fault I let it go to the judges and I can’t go out like that. 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. I think this last fight was probably the best fight I’ve ever had, the most focused I’ve ever been. I didn’t know how crucial that Kimura was until I saw the video. I was going to let him break it. I really was. That’s the competitive blood in me. I’ve never given up on anything, and I guess that’s back in me now."

-- After a year on the sidelines in pursuit of an acting career, lightweight sensation Roger Huerta tells Sherdog.com that he's gotten the fighting spirit back following his split decision loss to undefeated contender Gray Maynard at the Sept. 16 UFC Fight Night 19 event in Oklahoma. "El Matador" satisfied the remaining fight on his UFC contract after turning down an extension last year that would have kept him inside the Octagon. So if Huerta does comes back, where does he fit within the division? Opinions please.
