Kind of feel sorry for Huerta. He went from the cover of sports illustrated moving up the UFC lightweight ranks to being cut by Bellator after two fights and then losing to War Machine in a second rate promotion. Quite a fast downfall. Hopefully he gets on a roll because I would like to see him get back into one of the bigger promotions - Strikeforce could use some new blood.

The brutal part of MMA is not the fighting, but how fast a fighters stock falls with a few losses. The old saying "a fighter is only as good as their last fight" is pretty accurate.

Just want to make it clear, I like Huerta. He's a tough dude. I especially loved when he knocked out that ex Texas A&M football player after he hit a woman. Huerta's a stud. Just sucks that he had some bad breaks the last couple of fights.

I see you're using the DD fighter ranking system.

I think his problems are outside of the cage....living and training in Thailand (take ot from someone who has been there) cant be a good idea.....thats a non stop party beyond anything in America shy of Mardi Gras.
