Roger Huerta joins Shinya Aoki and Ben Askren at ONE FC 19 in Abu Dhabi

Bellator MMA

Like Obi Wan said, "Now that's a name I've not heard in a long time..."

Mixed martial arts (MMA) fans haven't seen former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight (and part-time street fighter) Roger Huerta for over two years. Probably because it took him that long to wake up from one of the nastiest soccer kicks in the history of the sport (see it again here).

But time heals all wounds.

The 31-year-old Huerta (21-7-1, 1 NC), just 1-6 over his last seven, has been paired off against undefeated newcomer Christian Holley (10-0) at the upcoming ONE FC 19 event, scheduled for August 29, 2014 at Dubai's World Trade Centre in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

That's not all.

Joining "El Matador" is lightweight champion Shinya Aoki, who puts his strap on the line against former UFC 155-pound contender Kamal Shalorus. "Reign of Champions" is headlined by former Bellator welterweight kingpin Ben Askren, as he tangles with international superstar Nobutatsu Suzuki.
