MMAmadness’ own Ryan McKinnell has learned exclusively from a very reliable source, that UFC Lightweight superstar Roger Huerta will be making his Octagon return in Minneapolis on the UFC’s August card. An opponent has yet to be announced. Let the speculation begin…

    I wondered what had happened to him. He was fighting more frequently than anyone and then nothing. I like to watch him. He pushes a furious pace.

    i have a ton of respect for Roger Huerta…not only is he a badass but he actually gives back and he's doing the smart thing by having a backup plan after he's retired from the UFC

    I cant say that Kenny Florian would do all that well against Roger Huerta…i think Roger's style is just too aggressive for Florian to handle…It would be a good fight i think but i believe that Huerta would knock him out in the middle of the 3rd

    its a tuff one to call, i am starting not to like kenflo but he is good, huerta showed alot of heart in the guida fight but i think ken will take it in a tuff battle.

    i'm starting to think kenflo will always be an underdog. i think its because we have seen him look very weak in the past and can't get it out of our head when he got dominated by diego sanchez.

    i would think kenflo is in line to fight the winner of penn/sherk because who else is there as a #1 contender? but if he does get his fight against huerta i'm going to have to take kenflo.

    I'm glad to see something about Huerta- I am a new yet die-hard UFC fan and Roger was the first fighter I had a liking for. He always thanks God before he thanks anyone else after winning a fight and that shows he has heart.
