Exclusive: Bellator 13 Pre-Fight Interviews, Featuring Roger Huerta, Joe Warren + More

Roger Huerta – Bellator 13 press conference interview – Watch more Funny Videos

Bellator Fighting Championships returns tonight at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, featuring quarterfinal action in their new lightweight and featherweight tournaments. Sixteen fighters hit the scales yesterday, and our new friend Justin Fielder was on hand at the weigh-ins to ask the headliners some probing questions. Above, former UFC star Roger Huerta tells us why he chose to sign with Bellator, gives his thoughts on his unnervingly jacked opponent Chad Hinton, and talks about his globe-trotting training camp for this fight. (Apologies for the picture quality, it was dark in there.)

After the jump…

Joe Warren tries out some new nicknames, scoffs at his opponent Eric Marriott’s plan to keep the fight standing, and discusses why he loves the tournament format.
– 38-year-old family man Chad Hinton tells us what it means to him to get an opportunity to fight a big name like Roger Huerta.
– Lightweight tourney participant and Greg Jackson product Carey Vanier, who faces Joe Duarte tonight, runs down his journey from Best Buy manager to full-time fighter.

Check your local listings to see when FOX Sports Net is showing Bellator 13 in your ‘hood. Though it’s supposed to be broadcast live starting at 8 p.m. ET, the event is being tape-delayed in New York due to a goddamned Islanders/Penguins game, unfortunately. If you miss it, be sure to watch out for the Bellator highlight shows this Saturday night on NBC and Telemundo.

None taken!

I freely admit I suck at interviewing, but in my defense this is the first time I've ever done anything like this, and I was genuinely excited about the whole experience.

What can I say? I'm a fan, and it was fun hanging out with the fighters.

The way I justify it is that these videos wouldn't exist if I wasn't there- if either of the Ben's want to fly out to Miami for next time, I'm all for it.

I'm actually uploading some post-fight stuff right now, if the Ben's put it up, hopefully you'll see some improvement. If not... sorry?

Well after Hinton loses this fight I have an opening in the 'cheese grater' position in my kitchen.

Its also being aired after a delay on FSN in Utah. No idea why.

What time is the recap on NBC on Sat?

By the way, in Canada it's being aired on The Score, but not until tomorrow (Friday) night at 10:30 EST. This will be the standard time slot every week.
