Roger Huerta Not Retiring Despite Being Released By Bellator, Plans Return This Summer

Former UFC lightweight contender, Roger Huerta has been released from his contract with Bellator Fighting Championships after a 1-2 run with the promotion. However, Huerta explains that he has no plans of hanging up his gloves just yet and is already planning a return to competition this summer.

Huerta, speaking via said:

“I wanted to see where I was at in life. Where I fit in in this whole work that I do, which is fighting, and see what I really, really wanted to do and why I lost the last couple of fights. Just to reevaluate a couple of things and change for the better.”

“[MMA retirement is] not in the cards. I’m still fairly young and I still have some good fights in me. Jeff Clark (Huerta’s manager) and my management team are in talks with other promotions now into having me fight in the summer.”
