UPDATE #1: The video got killed so you can watch the TMZ footage here.
UPDATE #2: Huerta may not have been the attacker in the incident, and another person might have taken his shirt off and fought the man who hit the woman from behind. Cage Potato has a full breakdown of the video and believes that TMZ was mistaken.
Former UFC and current Bellator fighter Roger “El Matador” Huerta was involved in a street fight outside of a bar this past weekend in Austin, Texas. The incident occurred around 2 a.m. when some other customers of the bar started getting heated in the parking lot. Words were exchanged, tempers flared and a woman was punched in the head from behind. Then, well… HUERTA HULK SMASH!!!
According to TMZ, Huerta witnessed the punch, yelled, “You just punched a f*cking girl” and then took off his shirt and cool backwards hat, hit G7 on the jukebox and ran after the attacker. While most of the fight isn’t caught on camera, you can use your imagination, because the person recording catches Huerta finishing off his large opponent, who is mangled in a bloody heap on the ground.
Video after the jump.
Representatives from Bellator – the MMA organization that features predominantly Latino fighters – have yet to comment on the incident and whether or not Huerta will receive a punishment. As for UFC President Dana White, he told 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.”
Austin police did not arrest anyone after the incident, and no arrests have been made yet, as Huerta’s manager claims he still hasn’t even spoken with the fighter. Meanwhile, there’s no word on the condition of Huerta’s opponent; however, he reportedly angered Huerta further when he informed him that the princess was in another castle.
