It’s not the original, announced main event. But MMA fans in Hungary will be getting a special treat next month.

Benson Henderson will meet the returning Roger Huerta in the headliner of Bellator 196 on April 6 in Budapest, MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani reported on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. James Gallagher, who was supposed to headline the card against Adam Borics, had to withdraw due to a hand injury and the bout was scrapped. Borics will remain on the card.

Man Benson has fallen hard if they gotta dig up Huerta to feed him to him. Fyi as a straight man Ruger Huerta is handsome as fuck.

Wow, I didn't know Huerta was still fighting. I thought he almost got killed by that soccer kick to the head a few years ago. If you haven't seen it, look it up.

Bellator is just relying on old ufc stars these days to get numbers up. Their nunbers just arent doing well with their own talent

He's been fighting on average once per year since 2011.

On a two fight win streak at the moment. His scrap with Guida 11 YEARS AGO is still one of my favorite MMA memories.

That was the last I heard of him too. That was brutal. I'm definitely opposed to those kicks almost for that reason

All of MMA is just one big shit show at the moment.
We have UFC bringing back 0-1 CM Punk to PPV against a bum to just sell more buys because their champions can't sell shit and having their one guy who can sell fights have a boxing match.

Bellator is bringing back people from the dead like Huerta and CroCop because their fighters can't sell shit.

And the bigger regional promotions like KSW or Rizin still afloat by making freak show fights like Gabi Garcia vs that 50 year old prowrestler or Body Builder vs Body Builder.

At this point it's not even fair to call MMA a sport anymore.
