Roger Huerta is one of the most recognizable fighters in the sport of MMA, and was the first mixed martial artist to ever appear on the front cover of the prestigious Sports Illustrated Magazine. He has built a reputation over the years for putting on exciting, action-packed fights, and has been up against some of the best lightweights in the business.
Huerta is known for his brawling style, and has been involved in some of the greatest MMA fights of all time, such as his famed bouts against Leonard Garcia and Clay Guida. Currently based in Phuket, Thailand, his striking game has become much more diverse since he began training in Muay Thai under some of the art’s best trainers.
He signed a contract with ONE Championship in 2012, and has been competing in the promotion ever since. After an unsuccessful stint at welterweight, Huerta returned to his natural weight class of lightweight, and looked back to his best at ONE: REIGN OF CHAMPIONS when he stopped previously-undefeated Englishman Christian Holley with strikes in the opening round.
