According to a report from Ryan McKinnell of MMAMadness, Roger Huerta (20-1-1) will return to the cage at UFC 87 in August. The event is slated to be held in Minnesota, Huerta’s adopted home state. An opponent has yet to be agreed upon. But Kenny Florian has called for the fight and would appear to make the most sense at this time.
Huerta is coming off of a spectacular come-from-behind victory against Clay Guida at the UFC’s Ultimate Finale 6 last December in a fight that many labeled an “instant classic”.
