A lot of people don’t know this story—

But while Roger Huerta was out here training for his fight camp against Pat Curran he was swimming in the beach on the southside of the island of Phuket.

A small child got caught in the under current–and Roger Huerta preformed CPR on her until paramedics arrived (which in Thailand took sometime–greatly making ‘survival odds’ seem unlikely). Literally it was the type of experience that changes most peoples lives forever.

…I never really knew him before his trips to Tiger Muay Thai…but I can honestly say he is one of the most humble-down to earth guys in the fight game.

He’s exciting–and exactly what type of fighter a promotion should look to build around. I hope he rebounds on his recent tough streak and continues to establish himself as one of the top lightweigts in the world.
