Roger "El Matador" Huerta: Time heals all wounds

Props: MMAWeekly


"I'm not fighting for 6, 7, 8 months. I did everything I could this year, I tried to keep helping promote the sport, keep making it grow, but I think I didn't get a lot of R&R. I trained through Thanksgiving for this fight, I didn't even go home to Texas to spend time with my family. I think I'm going to take some time off. You know the truth is I need to finish school too. I fought 5 times this year and I think that's the most anybody's ever done in the UFC and I think I'm going to take some time off."

Lightweight phenom Roger "El Matador" Huerta reveals he's burned out from a frantic 2007 and looks to regroup after his epic battle against Clay "The Carpenter" Guida at UFC's Ultimate Fighter Finale 6.
