"I really don't care about the title. For me it's just getting back up there on the rankings. You just can't hold anything back. "You obviously saw what happened to Josh Neer and the other opponents he's faced. But again, he is human, and he is beatable. The things that we're working on, we're going to have to take him out of his comfort zone to win. It's been like I've been given another chance and it's one of those things like, 'Alright, this is it. This is for all the marbles. You probably won't ever, ever get a chance like this again.' And I was really stoked about it and I'm just going to give it everything I have now in my training. [All my] dedication and focus all on this guy."
Former UFC 155-pound contender Roger Huerta talks to the MMA Hour about getting a second chance at lightweight supremacy when he locks horns with Eddie Alvarez at Bellator 33 on Oct. 21 in Philadelphia. "El Matador" was bounced from the lightweight tournament by Pat Curran earlier this year but got another crack at the champ when Lil' Frog was forced to bow out due to injury. Will Huerta make the most of his second chance? Or has his ship already sailed?
