Roger Huerta and the UFC appear to be on good terms yet again. According to MMAweekly.com, “El Matador” signed a new five fight deal with the UFC Monday night and sources close to Huerta today confirmed the news.
Huerta had positioned himself as one of the UFC’s hottest prospects in 2007. Fighting five times last year for the promotion, the Minnesota resident found himself on the cover of Sports Illustrated and went undefeated in the Octagon.
He had his win streak snapped by Kenny Florian at UFC 87 in August, his only appearance in the UFC this year. Prior to UFC 87 Huerta spoke out against the UFC about their business practices in a Fight! magazine article.
