Rumor: Roger Huerta to Spend His Last 15 Minutes in the UFC Being Smothered by Sean Sherk

(Note to Muscle Shark: Watch out for hail-Mary flying knees in the third round. Props to CombatLifestyle.)

So says MMAWeekly’s blog MMAInsider:

MMAInsider has learned from several sources close to former UFC lightweight champ Sean Sherk that a meeting with fellow Minnesotan Roger Huerta is possible for UFC 97 in Montreal, Canada [on April 18th].
Huerta recently elected not to sign a contract extension with the UFC, deciding instead to focus on recent opportunities in acting and modeling. He has reportedly signed a three-film development deal with Lions Gate Films, and is working on a book about his life.
A meeting with Sherk would be the last fight on Huerta’s current contract.

If Sherk chooses to keep the fight standing and show off the improved striking that we saw in his decision win over Tyson Griffin at UFC 90, this might actually be a good match. I’m just worried that Dana White will hand him an envelope of cash and say "make this little punk look bad," causing Sherk to spend all three rounds working his lay-and-pray. Just like Tito Ortiz’s last fight against Lyoto Machida, the UFC may not want to send off their departing star with a big win. They’re kind of vindictive like that.

Roger will definately win. No ands, ifs or but about it.

Haha so damn funny. As soon as the talk of Roger left, everyone said they would put him on the under card or make him fight Sherk in his last fight. Cmon UFC, must you be so predictable?

I see we got a lot of Huerta haters here. Look trash talk Huerta all you want. Yall know if Ken Flo went toe to toe instead of trying to when with points then Huerta would have gotten the W. As for Sherk KOin Huerata, C'mon "mayhem420" Huerta took some solid shots from Leonard Garcia, the man who just KOd the crap out of Jens Pulver. If Roger actually trains hard for this fight, which he may he may not since he has nothing to lose, heres how it will go down, pending Sherk doesnt try to Ken Flo him and score points:

Roid Shark will try to stand up and lose that battle so his bleeding face will try some takedowns with no success. You forget, Huerta was a college wrestler too. Anyway, Huerta KOs RoidShark in the third round with flying knee during a beat down bleeding RoidShark slow telegraphed takedown attempt.

@Ben Dover

I'm actually a fan of clay guida's fist-eating ways. It's a noble tradition in the manner of other great fist-eating champions like Gotti.

As for huerta, I thought and still think he's over-rated in many ways. But I have enjoyed watching him grow as a fighter. I think he adds something new each fight. Having said that, I'm going to route for Sherk here. I think Sean is a better fighter with a lot more to lose (namely 'roid money (think mad money, but for stuff that shrinks your testicles)).

I was getting a bit tired of seeing Huerta being pimped out as their Latin American poster boy (much as they do with Bisping)

I've got an idea. If Huerta wants to get info acting, why doesn't nut-up and act like a fighter. Good luck. We'll see him back in six months.

This is a good fight. I want to see Roger win, but I don't think he will.

Wow, never thought I'd say this...but I'll be rooting for Sherk.
Ben Dover- January 16, 2009 at 9:28 am
Brawl all you want, Huerta, but it doesn't work against a fighter who doesn't just stand in front of you and eat punches like Clay Guida.

Roger Huerta stareing in Jaws 3: The Roid Shark; the movie ends in the first scene when Roger gets eaten alive.

heres a perfect ending. sherk turns into a demon and eats rogers head, then clooney and taritino kill him and salma hayak does a nice little dance over both of thier dead bodies

I hope Huerta ko's Sherk and then they both leave for good. Screw'em both the meathead roid popper and the pretty boy w/ dilusions of screen stardom

HAHA. Roger better get used to someone holding him down and raping him if he plans on a hollywood career.

I dont like either of these guys. I guess its a win win for me. A double knockout would be perfect.

C u later huerta sherk is going to take it to him with sherks improved striking huerta is screwed in this fight the only thing he has going for him is his reach which sherk knows how to negate sherk by TKO GnP 3rd round
Russ- January 16, 2009 at 8:22 am
I hope Huerta's adventure into cinema is a little better than Randy's, and so help me if there is a scorpion king 3 co-starring El Matador and The Natural, im losing all faith in man kind...

Sweet. Sherk will complete what kenflo started in exposing how overrated this guy is and how padded his record is. I wouldn't be suprised if he outstrikes heurta, but there's not much doubt he could spend 3 rounds gnping him. Maybe we might even see sherk finish an opponent for once. That'd be nice. Then again kenny "i finish fights" florian didn't so that's probably wishful thinking. I don't see heurta ko'ing sherk though, not after seeing him brush off those knees from franca.

This will be the only time that a win via smothering would be awesome!!
However if this fight does happen I could see Sherk trying out his new boxing skills and gettting KTFO late in round 1 or early round 2... Huerta has a way of getting people to fight his fight... except for Ken-Flo that is.

Huerta needs to stop messing around and fight
