Roger Huerta has a new opponent for his debut in One FC in June and it’s a big stylistic difference from his original fight.
Stepping in to face Huerta will be submission specialist and two-time One FC veteran Zorobabel Moreira.
Sources close to the fight confirmed the new bout to MMAWeekly.com on late Tuesday evening.
Although Moreira is typically a lightweight fighter, the bout with Huerta will be at welterweight. Huerta was originally scheduled to face fellow former UFC competitor Phil Baroni at welterweight, so Moreira agreed to come up in weight for the bout.
Baroni was knocked out of the fight, literally, when he lost by TKO in his last bout at Ring of Fire in Colorado just last weekend.
Now Huerta draws Moreira as his new opponent for the One FC: Destiny of Warriors card taking place on June 23 in Malaysia.
