Out of the dog house, UFC lightweight Roger “El Matador” Huerta has signed a new five fight contract with the UFC, according to MMAWeekly.

Huerta caught some flack for speaking out about the UFC pay structure in an interview with Fight Magazine.

“All I was saying, is that as a business decision — and you can’t argue about this — it’s in all businesses…If another company offers you something better for you and your family, you would do that. It’s the logical thing to do, and that’s all I was saying.”

Huerta is expected to return to the cage sometime in March.

    Dana White is Huerta's "daddy". I hate when guys bitch then back down from their original statements.

    Watch how this plays out. I can see him getting dropped for losing in another lackluster performance ie..vs florian. Then he'll start bitching about how much he is paid and how dana runs things.

    I like him. I'm glad he stayed. Everyone seems to bite his head off for one bad fight, what about his fights before that?

    Jom miller should be do for a pretty good fight now. I'd say the winner or loser of diaz guida. Or he replaces anyone who is injured again in the same situation.

    derek…you're right and you're wrong man… AA and tito left, but in nowhere near the same manner or stages of their carreer(…or we'll soon see) and that should be the last time anyone puts those 2 names together without the words" would whup his ass" somewhere in between…Elite wouldn't even give torta ortiz the $$$ he wanted…
