Along with Quinton Jackson, another UFC fighter who had his eye on a career in Hollywood – lightweight contender Roger Huerta, has apparently had a change of heart and is now set to continue his fight career.  Speaking to sherdog.com Huerta stated “I can’t go out with two losses in a row. I don’t think I’m going to call it quits anytime soon.”

Despite those two losses (to Kenny Florian and Gray Maynard) Huerta, who’s record now stands at a very respectable 19-3, would still be seen as a considered a threat in the UFC’s lightweight division – assuming that the organisation is willing to offer him a new contract.  If they don’t then he would not be short on offers elsewhere with Strikeforce certain to show a keen interest in acquiring him. For them Huerta would be seem as both an exciting fighter who would inject new life to their 155lb weight class, and a marketable one who could draw new fans to their promotion.   The fighter himself appears to have his heart set on a return to the octagon however and it is unlikely that the UFC will stand in his way.
