Quoteworthy:

"He’s a really, really nice guy, great fighter, tons of heart. He kind of mentioned that he would like to come down to New Mexico and try it out. Hopefully it will help everybody and everybody will win."

Mixed martial arts super trainer, Greg Jackson, reveals that Roger Huerta will train with his camp in Albuquerque, N.M., prior to his lightweight showdown with Kenny Florian at UFC 87 in August. The 155-bout is widely considered the number one title contender eliminator match, making it perhaps the most important fight for "El Matador" in his career to date. Huerta has not competed since December 2007 and will likely thrive training alongside UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre, as well as Rashad Evans, Nate Marquardt and other top fighters.
