I know the fight was last night but I Just found a great interview with the guy..

"Huerta will be making his promotional debut after a very successful run in the UFC. He is excited about the opportunity to fight for Bellator, and his reasons for signing with the promotion were clear. Huerta’s first test comes against the undefeated Chad Hinton in the first round of the Bellator lightweight tournament."

Check out the rest of the article here: http://msg.com/fightclub/roger-huerta-interview.html

His fight was good, but the lack of knowledge on his opponent must have caught him by surprise because the guy was able to last the first round with him by utilizing Couture style clinch tactics....it still ended the way you would think it did, and I really can't wait to see him fight Alvarez!

I liked Huerta from the fight I saw against Halverson, even though he fought a lot of guys in their debuts he was always exciting and never half assed his way to a victory
