Roger Huerta is officially in a position where he can entertain offers from promotions outside of the UFC following the completion of his contract with the promotion.

According to a recent report from Loretta Hunt over at Sherdog.com, Huerta is now free to speak with other organizations, although the UFC is in a position where they have a right to match any deal offered to Roger through a rival promotion.

“We’re free to negotiate with other organizations now, but the UFC has the right to match (any offer),” said Jeff Clark, Huerta’s manager over at NCFC Management.

When asked if he has been approached by any promotion’s outside of the UFC, Clark stated, “We’ve had a lot of interest from different parties.”

I'll watch Roger wherever he goes. I think he should sign a 3 or 4 fight deal with Strikeforce* and then return to the UFC.

As long as he's committed...



* I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up with Bellator.

SInce the first time I saw either of them fight I've been praying for a Huerta vs Alverez fight. I'd love to see Roger make his way into Bellator for the April tourney.

He fits the demographic they are reaching for as well. Seems like a perfect fit to me.
