Huerta is really trying to piss off the UFC brass lately:
Report: Roger Huerta and UFC ‘far apart’ on contract extension at UFC blog for UFC news, results, videos, rumors, fights, pics and tickets — MMAmania.com
Six-figures??? I understand wanting a raise, because I think he's making 19k / 19k right now, but an $80,000 raise? C'mon man, you're kidding yourself. Even (Huerta's teammate) GSP doesn't make that much, and he's proven himself FAR more than Roger has.Huerta, who has one fight left on his contact after the Florian fight, is far apart with UFC on terms for a renewal. Huerta, who has gotten a new agent, was asking for six-figures guaranteed per fight as well as points on the PPV, in negotiations that haven’t gone well for some time. That’s a better deal then [BJ] Penn, so he wasn’t going to get it. The UFC position is that they groomed Huerta and pushed him hard and were careful of his opponents, with the exception of Clay Guida.
Win or lose Saturday night, I think we'll be seeing Roger on the sidelines for quite some time.
