Roger Huerta’s Official Freeze-Out Begins


(As if this wasn’t humiliating enough.)

Did anybody watch the replay of UFC 87 on Spike last night? If you did, you might have noticed there was something missing. As the eternally vigilant Mike C. at MMAEruption explains:

The fight between Roger Huerta and Kenny Florian. Weird, huh? That was the third most-hyped fight at the event, and it does not make it onto the broadcast over stuff like Maia/Mcdonald and McFedries/Massenzio, the latter of which was actually from Ultimate Fight Night 15!

[N]othing pisses [Dana White] off more than when his fighters talk about money in public. And if you recall, shortly before UFC 87, Roger Huerta was interviewed by Fight! magazine, complaining quite a bit about the UFC’s compensation policies and his contract. Plus, if we look back at the original UFC 87 broadcast, Roger’s post-fight interview wasn’t broadcast. And now, the match between Roger and Kenny doesn’t even make it onto the replay? True, the fight wasn’t exactly the barn burner it was expected to be, but come on! Kenny and Roger are big names for the UFC.

So we can stick the proverbial fork in Roger Huerta, because he’s done. He is about to get the Andrei Arlovski treatment. Expect Roger’s next fight to be on the undercard of an Ultimate Fight Night against a wrestler that will hold him down and make him look bad for three rounds.

UFC 87′s three headlining fights (Huerta/Florian, Lesnar/Herring, GSP/Fitch) all went to decision, and while that may have created some time constraints for Spike, you can’t see this as anything but an intentional insult for Huerta — especially when his match is replaced by some random bout from an Ultimate Fight Night. We’ll keep you updated on when/where Huerta’s next match will be, but it’s looking like he’s being made an example of right now. Cold-blooded, bro…

Here is the deal, Dana white is a punk bitch, we all know now that he is setting these lame fights up! The ogre Brock lesner is by far his worst publicity stunt! And all these dumb ass people keep paying to watch the same thing fight after fight! When UFC was real it was brilliant real fighters real blood and guts shit, now we are allowing this blow hole Dana, who mind you is rolling in the bucks and so are his BFF's here's the list : Chuck Lidell, Rampage, and the numb nuts brock lesner. I refuse to give this man a dime anymore i look up the results after the fight! Roger Huerta is an amazing fighter, I agree young but what makes Dana the almighty so great he dictates your career the people should do that and that is where hopefully fingers crossed another company comes in and gives him a run for his money. I mean hell he might as well liquor Tank abott and Kimbo slice and let em go at each other woo hoo what a great fight. Fuck Dana

To all you haters out there, on tito, Fedor and especially Roger huerta. They are what attract fans to the MMA world. They also understand this. Huerta was by no means being disrespectful, the kid just wants to be taken care of, who doesn't. It isnt about his quality of opponent lately, the kid has telant and loves to brawl. Thats what the people want. Eventually he will (or would anyways) get his big name match-ups. Honestly, who would u rather watch, Huerta VS Penn, or sherk vs florian. You can try and fool yourselves but you know the truth. Dana needs to get off his soap box and do whats better for the sport and not his ego, before he loses all his exciting fighters to other organizations and is left with the ultimate wrestler championshp.

I AM GAY and have a crush on Dana.

FLORIAN SUCKS DANA WHITES ASS, HE ONE OF UFC FAVORITES, I DONT NOW WHY STUPID AN BORING WRESTLERS GET THAT RESPECT, ITS BETTER TO SEE MORE ACTION, ROGER DEFINTLY TALKED SOME BULLSHIT BUT AT LEAST HE TRIES TO GIVE SOME SHOW FOR THE FANS, I GET SLEEP WITH GUYS LIKE FLORIAN, SANCHEZ, VERA AND THE STUPID THAT IS GOING TO FIGHT VS GRIFFIN; SOONER OR LATER THE UFC IS GOING TO COLAPSE

Agonistes and UFC Fan y'all wish you had half the talent Roger has in one of his nuts. I doubt the UFC will give him the Arlovski treatment. Reason being is because they want to expand to Latin countries and he is their biggest draw. Yes Florian beat him and his parents are from Peru.,but Huerta is quite frankly more marketable and a much more feasible option. Besides we all know that Kenny vs. Roger was a bullshit fight. If Roger had no talent why would "Mr. I finish fights" fight like Machida? What you need to do is talk about how Kimbo needs to open his eyes and recognize that he was made out to be so much better than he really is.
Agonistes- October 12, 2008 at 4:31 am
Huerta just got a big head, end of story. he strung together a nice win record and seemed to forget that his record was because the UFC was spoon feeding him opponents. Look at the guys that Huerta beat leading up to the fight with Florian. Jason Dent, John Halverson, Doug Evans and Alberto Crane all washed out of the UFC. Leonard Garcia dropped back to featherweight and went to the WEC, and Clay Guida beat Huerta's ass for like 12 minutes straight before catching some nasty shots. Huerta seems to have forgotten that all he's done is fight wash outs, a featherweight and a gatekeeper. Huerta's a good fighter with alot of talent, i admit it, but he's just good, not great, and definetely not as good as he thinks he is. kid needs to open his eyes and recognize that he was made out to be so much better than he really is. learn some humility, maybe then you wouldn't be basically out of a job.
UFC fan is a jackass- October 12, 2008 at 3:59 am
Huertas a good fighter. Thats pretty f***ed up. I personally hated the Florian match. Oh well Dana, you wanna lose some latino fans for not pushing him then thats your smart move.

Or is it? lol

It wouldn't be a big surprise to see him up in Goldenboy/Affliction eventually where Oscar DLH loves to promote latinos.

@UFC Fan -- so stupid you had to say it twice, haha.

@ One Hump -- I like where you're coming from.
Scott Whitt- October 11, 2008 at 11:52 pm
I know many of you hate Huerta because he is a pretty boy and was pushed. You ave to admit he is a good fighter. If you read the article all the way and not just snippets, he ws just saying that he wants to be taken care of and treated fairly. Who doesn't want the same from there employer? While I can teach for another 30 years, he only has a short time to make good money.
Dana is such a whiny baby, he immediately went personal. He should have been a little more professional about but when you are the 800 lb gorilla... One day, a fighter is going to punch him square in the face and i hope it gets filmed.
Also, Fedor is the bomb.His management is genius because they took a smaller payday but got the European broadcast rights. He will make 5x the difference.
Frank- October 11, 2008 at 10:47 pm
Shameless self-promotion is necessary for any fighter who wants to make the big bucks, I guess, but that has to be tempered with some business savvy. Most of these guys are pretty young and it doesn't seem like they have anybody giving them good advice.
Anonymous- October 11, 2008 at 10:23 pm
danas a baby, i like how he refuses to sighn top fighters cuz they hurt his feelings. Fedors not in the ufc because they wouldn't let him fight in sambo tournaments the russian national sport which he happens to be champion of, the elitist fucks. dana always talks about loving the sport but continually screws fans because hes a baby

to be clear; ufc fan, not @ufc fan, is an idiot.

you're an idiot.
@ufc fan- October 11, 2008 at 9:23 pm
Yup, Fedor sucks so much he beat the shit out of the interim HW UFC champ SEVERAL TIMES. And your precious UFC gives chuck liddell 500k to go and get his ass kicked again. You must be one of the fertitta brothers, as you want to see the fighters get nothing and the UFC to take all the profit. As for fedor being scared to sign "a real contract"....hmmm, you ever think about the fact that Fedor doesnt want to sign a suffocating, nocompete contract that doesnt pay him what he has been getting? NewsFlash: Fedor can do whatever the fuck he wants. Your jealouy will get you nowhere.
UFC fan- October 11, 2008 at 8:05 pm
You wanna know why fedor isnt in the UFC? cause hes fucking insane, thats why. and his management is even more delusional.
Fedor is so in love with himself I bet he sucks his own dick!
Fedor is scared to sign a real contract, and thinks he can do what he wants when he does...uhhh no you dumbass ruskie you cant.
But hey go sign with loser ass promoter companys like ASSfliction, they will overpay you to beat cans, and little dumbass tweeners will watch it. its not real MMA. All Fedor is , is a wannabee.
as for arlovski getting 500k to fight that fat bastard he fought, well good for him, he suckered elitexc, just like kimbo did, I hope it cost them their business, along with all the legal problems as well. Any fighter who thinks they are worth that much is full of shit.
I think 60 to 80k per fight should be top dollar for top draws. the reason you get a young dumbass like huerta talking shit is cause he sees dollar signs, and thinks hes worth it....hes not! I hope he can learn to say " do you want fries with that" well enough in English so as to not piss off the customers.

You can't blame fighters for pursuing a "cash grab"...but I also won't support them when they firmly place both feet in their collective mouths.

Keep training, getting better and winning and the cash part of the deal will take care of itself.

Roger unfortunately is not doing that.
Michaelthebox- October 11, 2008 at 7:03 pm
OneHump, Affliction is paying more than they can afford, more than the UFC wants to offer. If an organization can survive while outpaying the UFC, the UFC will be in huge trouble. But the UFC has basically nothing to fear from organizations paying huge amounts without being able to make that money back, because those organizations fail.
Dex- October 11, 2008 at 6:21 pm
I hate that this is happening to Roger, but it is what it is. He should have known better to run his mouth if he didn't have something better lined up already. If you are going to talk that shit you have to be able to back it up.

He didn't even have a solid win under his belt over a top 10 guy at that point. Clay Guida is no slouch but common'. You can't say the shit he said without having some clout. It's not like the UFC is hurting for 155ers.
aaron- October 11, 2008 at 3:54 pm
My friends ( all new, casual fans) thought the fight sucked. That could have something to do with it.

I liked it though.
OneHump- October 11, 2008 at 3:34 pm
@ UFC Fan: He would have to eat a lot of hamburgers if he's going to fight Kimbo. Either way, he wouldn't have much trouble winning that fight, 155 or 206.

I think Dana White's monopolistic and Stalinist tactics will bite him in the ass one day. As hard as he works to achieve a monopoly, the fighters will eventually have more control than he does. If he doesn't learn how to play fair, they're going to take their ball and go somewhere else. Affliction has already demonstrated that with the payout on their last event. Whether that's sustainable is questionable, but it shows the potential that some promoters are willing to give marquee fighters a fair deal. Don't believe me? Ask Fedor why he's not in the UFC.

The fight was actually advertised on SpikeTV when they were going promos for the broadcast.

I was looking forward to watching it again.
vrane- October 11, 2008 at 3:13 pm
If I remember correct, Kenflo accused Huerta of being oiled up before the fight or something, that could be a reason too. But maybe the money thing makes more sense.
Captain Awesome- October 11, 2008 at 2:59 pm
Florian/Huerta was a great fight. And I'm not overly pumped about GSP/Penn. I guess it seems sort of arbitrary, especially if it's not for a belt. It's not like their aren't plenty of challenges for them in their respective weight classes.
FilmDrunk- October 11, 2008 at 2:52 pm
I thought Florian/Huerta was pretty good fight. Also, am I the only one who'd rather see Florian/BJ Penn than BJ fight GSP again? I'd rather see Florian-Penn and GSP-Silva.
