Roger "El Matador" Huerta in his UFC days

As first reported on Wednesday via, former UFC fighter Roger Huerta was involved in a physical altercation early Saturday morning after witnessing a man knock a woman unconscious outside a club in Austin, Texas.

Huerta can be seen in the video (which you can watch HERE) taking off his shirt and approaching the perpetrator. The next thing we see is the man who attacked the woman laid out on the ground himself, apparently the victim of a bona fide professional fighter’s lethal brand of street justice.

Today, Huerta explained to TMZ what happened:

“I just don’t think that it’s right to hit a woman. Period.”

Huerta tells us, “I approached the man calmly and said, “Do you know what you just did? You just knocked out this girl.”

But Huerta claims the other guy responded, “F*ck you, f*ck these bitches, I’ll knock out any f*ckin’ bitch that I wanna f*ckin’ knock out, I’ll knock your f*cking bitch ass out.”

Huerta added, “… and as he’s saying this, he’s taking off his shirt … and at that point I was like, alright.'”

Huerta insists that he didn’t throw the first punch — and only reacted when the other guy “started swinging at me” … and we all know what happened next.

“I got the better of him and I left,” Huerta said.

The 27-year-old explained, “If that was my mom, if that was my sister, my spouse, anyone … I would’ve wanted someone to step in and do something about it.”

Huerta’s former boss, UFC President Dana White, who is normally absolutely against fighters getting into altercations outside the bounds of professional competition, also thought the woman’s attacker deserved some of his own medicine. Also speaking to TMZ, he said:

“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.”

What is your opinion readers? Did Roger do the right thing? What would you have done?

  1. Roger Huerta is a stand up guy. Anyone that sucker punches someone especially a girl, needs to be taught a lesson. I hope the guy didn’t suffer any serious injuries, cuz that wouldn’t be cool either. I hope Huerta doesn’t get into any serious trouble, but there really isn’t any good footage of the actually fight, other than the foot stomp, but it’s not clear who did the actual stomping.

  2. I think the black guy deserved every bit of the azz wip’n. He’s a Punk for hitting a girl and I’m glad Roger smoked him like a little biotch!

  3. i want to know his name so he will be recognized as a bitch every time he leaves his momma’s house daaaaamn… got knocked the fuck out.
