Roger Huerta arrived at Tiger Muay Thai in Phuket Thailand today. This is his third training trip to our gym

After starting his UFC career a red hot 6-0, he has gone 1-4 in his last 5 fights, facing some of the toughest competition in the game including, Kenny Florian, Gray Maynard, Pat Curran, and Eddie Alvarez--and only being finished once.

Looking to rehab a bit after his recent defeat to Bellator FC Champion Eddie Alvarez, and continue improving his Muay Thai striking...he is back at Tiger Muay Thai working with 3x Lumpinee Champion Ratanachai.

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.

When the paramedics arrived she was already declared dead at the scene...truthfully I couldn't imagine going through this leading into a training camp. Phone Post

so the child died in Rogers arms? Wow that has got to be so incredibly hard to deal with.
This guy is tough as nails with great skill and just doesn't know how to quit as apparent by him trying until the end with this unfortunate child. How could anyone not like the guy. We all know his childhood story was a horror story and he worked his way up to the top of the ufc and now has faced some tough losses. If his history is any indication he will only become better and tougher.
