    An intriguing lightweight clash between Bellator contenders Patricky Freire and Goiti Yamauchi will not be happening next month, but “Pitbull” will remain on the card.

    ESPN reported that Yamauchi withdrew from the event due to injury, and has been replaced by veteran Roger Huerta. Bellator 205 takes place at CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho on Friday, September 21st, airing live on Paramount Network.

    Huerta (24-10-1, 1 NC) returned to the Bellator banner this past April, losing by guillotine choke to Benson Henderson in the Bellator 196 main event in Hungary. The former UFC contender and ex-ONE Championship fighter is just 4-9 since 2008.

    Freire (19-8) is coming off a TKO win over Derek Campos in February,…


    Goiti Yamauchi out, Roger Huerta now fights Patricky Freire at Bellator 205

    I hate to say it, but this just seems like Roger Huerta getting paid to take a loss. I'd love to see him get the upset, though.

    I still remember his epic war with Guida.

    It seems like this article was about 10 years too late. MMA was already relatively mainstream by the time Huerta rose to prominence.
