Huerta, Speaking via

“There’s no hard feelings. I think everything is great, I had a good relationship with them when I went out the door, when I was changing my career. More power to them. I’ve been blessed. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for them.”

“To be honest, I feel really, really blessed to be where I’m at today, signing with Bellator and signing with Bjorn (Rebney). These guys out here are trying to make something happen. Honestly, it’s very unique, this tournament format is unique, and again you’re going to get the best out of these guys.”

“These guys got to be dedicated. It’s not like you win the first round and then you’re going to go off and party. It’s not like that. You’ve got to win, go back in the gym, train your butt off, go back in the cage, fight, win, and so on.”
