Roman Huerta will be making his return to the Cage on March 31st in his hometown of Odessa, TX for 24/7 Amateur Association. Great young man I’ve met twice myself while he competed here, in my hometown of San Antonio,TX. Here we go!!
sPidA: Coming back from a loss, are you coming in with something to prove, what have you learned from that loss?
Huerta: Coming back from a loss just gave me more dedication to train harder and to be more prepare for anything! Once you have lost a fight then you know how it feels to lose and get hurt,so from now on instead of wondering how it feels to lose, I’m going to make sure I don’t go through that again !!
sPidA: Would you say fighting in front of a home crowd would be motivation or pure frustration?
Huerta: I’m thinking the home crowd will give me motivation cause fighting in front of all your friends and family, it’ll give me the extra push in the fight to never give up !!
sPidA: If you had a time machine, where would you travel back to and why?
Huerta: If I had a time machine I think I would go back to when I was in seventh grade and change myself from being that lazzy kid to being an active athlete and to start training mixed martial arts at that age, that would be awesome because I would have all that knowledge in the sport right know !
sPidA: Your a big guy coming into your fights, how much weight do you drop and is this harder to do then the fight itself?
Huerta: Cutting weight is not the hardest thing but it is the most annoying. I used to fight at 205 and now I will fight at 185 so its a big drop in weight but since this is my first 185 fight I have no idea how I will react in the cage with this much weight drop but what I do know is I will not give up easy !!
sPidA: From what I read,you have been having opponent change on you a few times, have you changed your game plan or do you train the same for every fight?
Huerta: Yes as a matter of fact I had 3 opponents changed on me and no I did not change my fight game,in Mixed Martial Arts you should never study anybody by their last fights,always be prepared for anything because just like you can change your fight game so can they.
sPidA: Thank you for your time bro any last minute thanks or shouts to those reading this on TexasFighting?
Huerta: I just want to say thanks to my friends and family that supported me, my trainer rick and all my team that has helped push me through training. My sponsor Permian Basin eye care who helps me out on free eye exams!! I can’t promise a win in the fight but I promise i will not go down without a fight !!!
