| | Huerta vs Florian
since it looks like the UFC would probably want to set this one up, what with Florian being on the broadcast for Roger's fight with Clay.
who wins it?
i personally think Huerta would beat Kenny up.
Kenny's still not a big LW, still has weak wrestling although he is very aggressive and improving. Huerta has been in bad positions against great BJJ players before, although Alberto was pretty rusty, if Huerta was going to be exposed to have bad grappling, Crane would have done it.
and i think he can outhustle Florian, standing an on the ground, and with his wrestling, dictate the pace of the matchup. Roger has good GnP
although Kenny's muay thai is getting to be pretty good, more than enough to hurt Roger, Huerta can still scrap with him. Kenny likes a lot of kicks and combinations, but Huerta likes to brawl.
he might never throw hooks or combos, but Huerta can scrap, and i dont think Florian has been in the cage with anyone who makes the fight as physical as Roger does. he might not be as hardnosed and intense as Clay Guida, but Roger is going to make sure its not just a technical chess match, its going to be a fuckin' fight, and thats why i think Roger can pull this one out.
also, i like the fact that after a fight, Huerta rarely makes the same mistakes. i watched his funky ass head movement in the Garcia fight, and it was gone, 2 fights later, against Clay.

I don't think Huerta was exposed against Guida at all... Actually I think the opposite. That fight proved to me that Huerta has a really mature head when it comes to the fight game... in fact as soon as round 1 ended I was expecting that late in the third Huerta was going to catch Guida. He was very calm, and collected the entire fight and dealt incredibly well with the frantic style and pace of Clay.
Personally I felt that fight showed that Guida needs to be more focused and less manic in the octagon... A perfect example being Huerta hitting Guida with a knee and then immediately dropping to his knees... If Clay was more relaxed in there he wouldn't have gotten the kneeing a downed opponent foul, he would have caught that. I also noticed that Guida's GnP leaves much to be desired as he was given that gift of a perfect shot to Huerta and then followed up with such a wild GnP to try to finish that he ended up missing most of his shots.
As far as Huerta and Kenny go, I give it to Rodger. Ken-flo (The Killer, if you're reading this Sundance) is toted for his elbow strikes, but I don't see him being able to utilize them in any situation against Huerta. He certainly can't stand in front of Rodger cause he'll get KTFO and he doesn't have the wrestling to control him like Guida did. Also (this part is just IMO) I'm starting to get the impression from Florian that he's starting to read into his own hype, and that announcer spot really didn't help the situation (once again this is just the impression he gives off to me IMO so don't read into this one too much) and that could be a factor going into their fight. It's apparent to me that Huerta isn't about his own hype as he is so collected in the octagon.
That's my two... or four... or however many cents I put in just now.
