Kurt Southern to Face Roger Huerta
Top MMA News has learned that Kurt Southern (10-3) has agreed to face Roger Huerta (21-7) in the US-based MMA World Series of Fighting promotion.
While there is no current date for the fight, sources indicate it could be held in late August 2012. The bout is tentatively scheduled to the main event of the card.
MMA World Series of Fighting will hold tournaments in several weight divisions. Huerta/Southern would be one of the first round matchups in a tournament that could include Brian Cobb, Ronys Torres, and Marcus Aurelio who are also listed as fighting on their first event.
Southern is on a three fight win streak and was recovering from injury in early 2012. His last win was in the Score Fighting Series against Jorge Britto.
Southern, from Alliance MMA in Saskatoon, will be joined by a teammate in the organization. Tyson Steele (8-1) is scheduled to join the Welterweight tournament, however it is unknown when he will have his first appearance with the promotion nor whom his opponent will be. Other Welterweight fighters listed on the organization’s web site include Karo Parisyan, Igor Gracie, and Gregor Gracie.
Steele was supposed to fight Ryan Ford in his last fight but was injured prior to the event and had to pull out of his Aggression fight. Steele last fought in Evolution Fighting Championship where he defeated Ben Stewart.
