I've never thought Roger to be impressive. he looks good against low competition like Leonard or Halverson hes never beat anyone in the UFC with a decent name besides Clay, who was handling him for a solid 14 mins before getting caught. there is plenty of lightweights who should be ahead of roger for that title. like Gray Maynard, with his dominating performance over Frankie. i thought Edgar was the next big thing with wins over Spencer and Tyson but his little plans came to a halt at the hands of Gray. IMO Huerta is the most Over-Rated Fighter in The LW Division. of course if he beats Ken he definitely deserves a shot but i think Kenny will walk thought him. but with that being said i think someone else would make it a much better match. and sure if you wanna call this "Fighter Bashing" than go ahead

since Florian and Huerta are scheduled to fight that option should be Florian/Huerta winner and that would be my pick in the poll.

No, he doesnt deserve to fight for the title, and thats why he isnt. IF he beats Florian, than that would qualify him to step and and challange for the title.

Really dont see any point to this thread, other than you stating how much you dislike Huerta.

No, hes had 1 tough fight which he barely won, and florian himself hasnt ever beaten an opponent that warrants a contender match.

Tyson Griffin's resume is much more impressive than both of these guys, as is edgar's including his last loss.

I really think both should get a shot to lose to BJ then one can lose to Sherk for the title after BJ moves up both fighters are great but I could never see Huerta beating either BJ/Sherk same with Kenflo

I think that Huerta should get a title shot for sure.. He has been strong for a long time and he is on top of his game..

So im pretty sure huerta deserves a title shot if you beat guida and florian, why not and would still be undefeated in UFC. Huerta deserves a shot more than tyson griffin. Huerta finished guida.


fitch didnt always have the best wins but still got a title shot. and im sure the same will go for tyson griffin just get a win any way and you'll eventually get a title shot.

I think there really is no clear cut #1 contender at LW... And really don't see anyone that'll pose much of a threat to BJ be it Florian or Huerta...

In all his record looks good... But he was fed a lot of cannon fodder, so the record seems a little padded... Not his fault, just the UFC building up a poster boy... Nothing wrong with that...

If anything I'd like to see him fight BJ just cause I wanna see him take a whoopin

No huerta doesn't deserve the title shot he's only beat guida and guida spanked him for 2 rounds then slipped up. It should be florian or griffin imo
