Eddie Alvarez Vows To Finish Roger Huerta

“That’s usually when you perform your best — when you’re the underdog. I’m expecting the best Roger Huerta possible. That’s what I trained for… He didn’t join with Bellator to take a backseat. He joined Bellator to be their marquee guy, just like the UFC was trying to promote him. Immediately he became a threat to me. He’s been unfortunate in his last couple of outings, but that’s what makes him even more dangerous. He has nothing to lose, zero to lose… I’m going to get in his face like nobody’s got in his face before. I’m going to finish him. I don’t think there’s going to be a part of the fight where Roger’s dominant. I want to get right after him and beat him like nobody’s beaten him… We fight. If there’s two guys in MMA who go out and put it all out there, it’s us two. We fight and we don’t give up.”

—Eddie Alvarez talking to Sherdog about Roger Huerta

It may not be as significant as Gilbert Melendez vs. Eddie Alvarez, but in terms of it’s potential for fireworks, it might be even better. Eddie Alvarez vs. Roger Huerta goes down tomorrow night at Bellator 33.
