It’s no secret that Roger Huerta has seen better times. Now 1-5 in his last 6 fights, Huerta has only stepped into the cage once since 2010, losing via TKO in a wildly entertaining welterweight bout against the controversial War Machine. “El Matador”, who has spent the majority of his off-time training in Thailand, will now get the chance to prove he’s still relavent in ONE FC’s lightweight division.
Confirmed by Mike Chiapetta through Roger’s management, it is still unclear as to who the former UFC poster boy will face. With quality fighters and names like Shinya Aoki and Eduard Folayang amongst the young promotion’s lightweight ranks, there is no shortage of opposition for the UFC and Bellator veteran.
ONE FC 4 will take place at Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on June 23rd. The event is slated to feature the following bouts:
Renato Sobral vs. Tatsuya Mizuno
Masakazu Imanari vs. Leandro Issa
Eddie Ng vs. Arnaud Lepont
Gregor Gracie vs. Adam Kayoom
Allamurad Karayev vs. Roldan Sangcha-an
Peter Davis vs. Quek Kim Hock
Marcos Escobar vs. Rodrigo Praxedes
Roger Huerta vs. TBA
Mitch Chilson vs TBA
