The list of fighters who have sought out training and gameplan master Greg Jackson continues to grow as Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight contender, Roger Huerta, is expected to travel to the camp’s home in New Mexico to help him prepare for his August match-up against Kenny Florian.
The news comes from camp leader Greg Jackson himself during an appearance on MMAWeekly Radio Friday night.
“He’s a really, really nice guy, great fighter, tons of heart,” said Jackson about Huerta. “He kind of mentioned that he would like to come down to New Mexico and try it out. Hopefully it will help everybody and everybody will win.”
Huerta saw Jackson’s coaching prowess when working alongside UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre as he helped out as a training partner preparing for his bout with Matt Serra.
Now it appears that Huerta will look to train with top fighters such as St. Pierre, Rashad Evans, Keith Jardine and others to get ready for what will likely be a #1 contender’s match against Florian in August.
Jackson has proven to be one of the top coaches in all of MMA and Huerta would be another in a long line of top fighters to work with the camp.
