Submission! Watch Chris Gonzalez make Roger Huerta tap to strikes at Bellator 255

Roger Huerta returned to the cage earlier today (Fri., April 2, 2021) after a 17-month layoff to face Chris Gonzalez at Bellator 255 inside Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. Coming into the Catchweight bout, “El Matador” was riding a three-fight losing streak, having last tasted victory — a disqualification win — over Hayder Hassan in 2017.

When it was all said and done, Huerta left the Bellator cage with four straight losses after suffering a third round loss, tapping to strikes. But it was all Gonzalez prior to that, because the rising standout dominated the fight from beginning to end, even winning a 10-8 round in the opening frame.

With the loss, there is no telling where “El Matador,” 37, goes from here. As for Gonzalez, the talented wrestling standout is on the rise and improves to 6-0 and looks to crack the Top 10 with his huge win. will deliver live coverage of Bellator 255: “Pitbull vs. Sanchez 2” tonight right here, with the main card live at 9 p.m. ET for free on Showtime (and elsewhere).
