Roger Huerta is a lightweight fighter who has also competed at welterweight. Huerta formerly fought for the UFC, before he left their roster voluntarily to head for Bellator in their second season lightweight tournament. He picked up a victory there over Chad Hinton via third-round kneebar submission and then lost a hard-fought decision against Pat Curran in the semifinals.

Curran eventually won the tournament and was set to face Eddie Alvarez for the title as his reward. Unfortunately, Curran was injured and Huerta replaced him to fight Alvarez in a non-title superfight. Alvarez won the fight via a doctor stoppage between rounds two and three. Huerta suffered a double pair of broken orbital bones. Huerta took some time off from the sport to recover.

After a lengthy recovery period, Huerta returned against fellow UFC veteran War Machine, fighting at welterweight. War Machine defeated Huerta via third round TKO after breaking Huerta's ribs and gaining full mount.

Huerta then fought Zorobabel Moreira in his OneFC debut. Moreira handed Huerta his fourth straight loss, knocking him out with brutal soccer kicks in the second round. As of October 2013 Huerta hasn't fought since the Moreira loss in June 2012.
