Thanks to his chummy relationship with Octagon girl Arianny Celeste, MMA Rated’s Ariel Helwani got the scoop on what’s going on between Roger Huerta and his former “gal pal” (I read that phrase in Us Weekly while waiting in line at the supermarket and have been dying to use it). It sounds like Roger has done screwed things up somehow:
AH: What did you think of Roger Huerta’s performance against Kenny Florian?
AC: It was OK.
AH: And what about the rumors that you had falling out with Roger. Are those true?
AC: I wish the best for everybody including him but we are no longer on speaking terms. We are no longer friends.
AH: Wow. What happened?
AC: No comment.
AH: Why are you not on speaking terms?
AC: No comment
AH: Some have speculated that Roger and (“That 70′s Show” star) Laura Prepon have a budding relationship. What are your thoughts on that?
AC: I don’t know anything about that.
At the risk of leaning toward celebrity relationship gossip blog territory, I have to admit this makes me wonder. No longer on speaking terms? That doesn’t sound like your average break-up language, even if she wishes “the best for everyone, including him” — which is the type of boilerplate phrase that is certainly not meant to convey any sort of truth. Maybe all the fame and attention has gone to Huerta’s head? That explanation would certainly jive with his outrageous contract demands. At least this means that Arianny is back on the market. Maybe you should give her a call. I think she’d really like you if she got to know you.
