Roger Huerta on Bellator 33: “I feel like if Eddie wins, he ends up killing my career.”

Former UFC lightweight star, Roger Huerta speaks about what could be his career defining fight set for Bellator 33 on October 21st in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with Bellator lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez.

Huerta, speaking via Sherdog.com, said:

“I’ve been really in a slump where it’s been kind of up and down, up and down. Like where I’m at in life, what things mean to me in life. It’s been more than just competing and fighting, [but] I think I’m over that now.”

“It’s a dream come true for me, to be honest. Something that I was looking forward to when I signed on with Bellator. This is a guy who I’ve been eyeing, and all of a sudden here it is. It’s happening now and it’s going to be good. It does a lot of things. One fight, you’re back in it. It’s just how this thing goes. For me, I have to win.”

“I’m going in there to finish him. I’m not going in there to play patty cake or to fight a technical fight. I’m coming in to fight. … I’m telling you this right now: I’m not holding anything back. From the moment they say go, we touch gloves — it’s going to be on. I feel like if Eddie wins, he ends up killing my career. I can’t take another loss. This is really personal for me. This is my life.”
