UFC rookie Leonard Garcia (9-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC), who battled Roger Huerta (17-1-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) in one of UFC 69’s most entertaining fights, will be invited back to the UFC for a second fight, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Steve Sievert.

Garcia, who filled in for Alvin Robinson on just one month’s notice, dropped a unanimous decision to Huerta. But his constant smiling and refusal to slow down for 15 full minutes earned him a standing ovation at the bout’s conclusion.

It also earned him a second shot at a UFC victory.

Glad to see he has another chance. He's one of those guys you don't want to lose, because he is really a fighter. Just goes in there ready to scrap.

Nice to UFC are not getting rid of exciting fighters like Garcia after 1 loss. He is so calm and lets it all go in the octagon

Very good. Just needs to clean up his stand up game. He's got a lot of potential to be an exciting, competitive fighter at that weight.

He completely earned my respect when he went the distance with Huerta and I'm looking forward to seeing him fight again in the future.
