    I do. GSP thinks Jackson is his best coach and look at how good he is now. Good move by Huerta.

    Although Roger was on the cover of SI, it seems like he has been forgotten recently. He is not mentioned by any MMA magazine in their top ten lightweights, yet fighters that have not fought in over a year or fight once a year are named. Roger is going to sneak up on people and I would put money on him beating Kenny…unless Kenny uses his illegal elbows. Roger always, always, always puts on a great, entertaining fight. Way to go Roger!
