‘War Machine’ defeats Huerta in Texas
Meanwhile, in Pharr, Texas, a no-longer-imprisoned War Machine (formerly known as Jon Koppenhaver) earned a third-round TKO win over UFC and Bellator Fighting Championships veteran Roger Huerta in a welterweight main event at Ultimate Warrior Fighting 1.
With both fighters competing for the first time in 2011, War Machine and Huerta engaged in a back-and-forth affair. But in the third and final frame, Huerta escaped a few submission attempts before finding himself pinned under War Machine and desperately hoping to avoid the heavy punches coming from the top. His defense was ruled inadequate, and the fight was waved off.
