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.
