Huerta Is Back

Roger Huerta and the UFC have agreed on a new five fight contract. The two sides had been at each other's throats since Huerta spoke out against the company this summer. It did not help that he went on to lose his fight with Kenny Florian a week later. He has been rotting on the shelf since then with one fight left on his UFC contract. The UFC loves using this tactic with fighters they dislike.

At some point Huerta must have realized it was idiotic to continue being at war with the only viable MMA promotion who can afford him. He probably also saw how the UFC dealt with Jon Fitch and decided it was better to end this before he found himself unemployed. I'm glad Huerta is back. He's always fun to watch and should only get better. Fighting Florian was his first taste of the big time and even though he did not win, the experience will help him in the future.
