Roger Huerta Caught on Tape in Street Fight

Roger Huerta knocked out an attacker in a street fight outside of a bar in Austin, Texas early Saturday morning, reports TMZ, which released footage of the confrontation and aftermath of the scuffle.

In the video, Huerta confronts an attacker after watching the attacker knock out a female. A friend of Huerta's is seen rushing over and yelling, "Roger!" in an effort to stop Huerta from engaging, but Huerta chases after the attacker and leaves him laid out on the ground.

Huerta could presumably be facing potential criminal charges for his actions, but according to TMZ, no arrests have so far been made.

When Huerta's manager was reached for comment, he told TMZ, "I have not spoken to Roger yet about this incident, but I can say that it's in his nature to be very protective of women."

Looking at Huerta's childhood past, it shouldn't necessarily come as a surprise that Huerta would become instantly emotional after witnessing a violent act towards a woman. Huerta faced abuse from his mother growing up and was eventually abandoned by his mother. Huerta didn't begin experiencing positive family life until high school when a friend's mother took legal custody of him.

UFC president Dana White has also commented on the situation, telling TMZ, "In no way do I condone street fighting, but when a guy puts his hands on a woman he deserves to be knocked the f*ck out. Good for Roger."

This street fight could further cloud his already uncertain fight career following his surprising loss in May to Pat Curran in Bellator's lightweight tournament semifinals. After the loss, Huerta spoke of possibly fighting in Dream or K-1 with Bellator's permission, but nothing yet has come out of it.
