The doctor stoppage in Roger Huerta's recent TKO loss at the hands of Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez was questioned by some, but credit the cageside physician for saving Huerta from further damage.

According to Huerta's manager Jeff Clark, the game lightweight suffered broken orbital bones in both eyes during the course of the bout.

The orbital bone is the part of the skull that houses the eye and its appendages.

"He's a little beaten up but how long he stays out really depends on the breaks," Clark told MMA Fighting. "The doctors are looking at it."

Orbital bone breaks are most often seen in sports in combat sports like MMA and boxing, along with ice hockey, and recovery times vary wildly depending on severity. Huerta's recovery time likely won't be determined for a few days as specialists do further tests, according to Clark.

Doubtful.

Sure, he might be able to beat a few of the fringe contenders i.e. Guida/Stevenson/Fisher/Stout, but guys like Florian/Maynard/Dunham/Sherk would eat him alive.

Would be some exciting fights for him though.

Eddie is a beast.

I hope Roger gets back in the gym and focuses on his technique. He has all the characteristics of a great fighter.

florian, maynard, dunham and sherk would all be immediately disqualified. cannibalism is strictly prohibited as per the unified rules.

Nope! Sorry, but he would take Sherk, Dunham, and Florian too. Only Maynard would have the edge, and only due to his wrestling. Frankie would most likely take him on the cards, and well, BJ would be a toss up on which 1 showed up. The only 1 to challenge from WEC(UFC) would be Aldo.
Eddie is too fast, and he's coming into his prime right now. (All I mentioned above is the same for Gilbert too.)

 Eddie's cadio is unbelievable I don't see many lasting with him if it goes more than one round. I also think his hands are heavier than any of the UFC lightweights.

Who at 155 can keep up with the pace and offense of Alvarez?

Candidates:

Melendez
Gomi
Edgar
Blanco
Narantungalag

I don't think any of them would be favored though

With how Eddie's standup looked in this fight (and most of his others), it's kind of weird he didn't seem to want to stand with Neer at all, and in fact almost looked uncomfortable on the feet in that fight.

he has come along and is training/sparring with edgar part time. i dont know who trains edgar but he's adopted the same style. he still has a lot of holes in defense but is drastically better than he was last year. he used to move like a robot with his head perfectly erect. he kept his hands really low in this last fight and falls back into that when not moving but it might be he's worried about being put on his back

Eddie has been sparring with Frankie Edgar for years now. Eddie always had decent boxing. He would just overcommit sometimes which would leave him open for counters. Eddie and Frankie are both similar except that Eddie hits a lot harder than Frankie.
