Quoteworthy:

"I'm putting this in my mind that he's trying to go out and kill me, kill my career. I'm not going to let that happen. He's going to bring the best out of me and I'm going out there to try to knock him out and to finish him."

Former UFC 155-pound contender Roger Huerta knows this may be his last change at lightweight supremacy when he faces off against 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. Can Huerta follow up his bully beatdown with a career-defining performance in Philly? Or is Alvarez ready to show the world there's more to 155-pound greatness than just what's available in the UFC?
