Former Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight Roger Huerta officially has joined Bellator Fighting Championships.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) first reported the expected signing over the weekend, and during a press conference that today streamed live on www.bellator.com, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney made the official announcement.

Huerta (21-3-1), one of Bellator's highest-profile signings to date, joins the season-two eight-man lightweight tournament field. His first fight takes place at Bellator 13 on April 8 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla.

While there was still some exciting match ups available for him in the UFC, I have to think that Bellator is just as good or even better choice on his part. He'll probably be paid just as well as he was in the UFC, possibly better and he has a better chance of holding the LW title in Bellator. As already stated above me, Huerta vs Alvarez would be awesome.
