UFC lightweight pretty boy star Roger Huerta has decided to trade in his gloves for an acting career. At a time with only one fight left in his UFC contract, and a three deal movie contract from lions gate films, Huerta realizes that he only has enough time to one career.
So acting it will be. Along with Cung Le, Roger is currently working on the set of Tekken, a movie based on the popular fighting video game Tekken. Huerta will play the role of “Miguel Caballero Rojo”, a character in the game who is described as “a brawler from Spain”. The movie will be released toward the end of 2009.

Sports Illustrated Magazine recently interviewed UFC Fighter Roger Huerta before his upcoming main event fight against Clay Guida at Ultimate Fight Night. Roger has a heart warming story of the struggles he faced growing up. From having a drug addicted father, to being a child street beggar, to being unwanted by partners, Huerta has his fair share of life struggles. Sport Illustrated does an excellent job stepping us through the life of Roger Huerta, working its way into how he got involved in mma:
“Huerta had entered some amateur matches and then, on a lark, fought in a professional no-holds-barred bout at a ballroom in Medina, Minn. This was precisely the kind of illogical thrill-seeking that appeals to college freshmen. But in addition to winning the fight, he had experienced a surge of adrenaline he’d never felt before. Mixed martial arts-a marriage of the “striking” of boxing and kickboxing with the “ground game” of jujitsu and wrestling-fed something in him. “During the fight,” he recalls, “I was thinking to myself that this was totally for me.”
