Roger Huerta: “I know I’ll have a target on my back”

“Bellator provided me with a sense of security. I control my own destiny in the tournament. The winner gets to face one of the best lightweight fighters in the world — that’s the goal. If I lose, then it’s my fault. I know I’ll have a target on my back and that these guys will be fighting with everything they’ve got when they meet me. I know it’s going to be hard because I have to win the three fights, but I’m giving myself more fights if I win. It’s up to me, and I like the sound of that.”

Roger Huerta speaks about the pro’s and con’s of joining the Bellator lightweight tournament. (via Sherdog.com)
