In terms of personality, Kenny “Ken Flo” Florian and Roger “El Matador” Huerta are polar opposites. Florian exudes quiet confidence while Huerta’s confidence is often mistaken for arrogance.

Despite personality differences, the two men share some similarities. Both have impressive records in the Octagon and both are vying for the number one contender slot in the UFC’s lightweight division. The score will be settled August 9 in Minneapolis at UFC 87.

The three-round bout has been heavily anticipated since it was announced, and given the histories of the two men, could end up being one of the most exciting and talked about match ups of the year. With UFC 87 just two weeks away, all previous trash talk has subsided, revealing two fighters with great respect for each other.

“I consider Roger at the top of the weight class,” Florian says of Huerta. “He’s been tearing through competitors and popularity-wise, we’re at the top. In my opinion, it was the best fight you could put together in this weight class. I’m in the UFC to fight the best, and I consider Roger one of the best.”
