Ex-UFC Star in

Bloody Street Fight

Caught on Tape

8/4/2010 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained footage of former UFC superstar Roger Huerta engaging in a bloody street fight in Austin, Texas this weekend -- against a man who appears to have socked a woman in the head.

080410-fight-video-credit-1
27-year-old Huerta -- who was once featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated -- was in front of a bar in Austin around 2 AM on Saturday morning ... when some other people began fighting.  Roger was near the scuffle ... when he saw one of the men involved punch a female who was standing near the ruckus.

Once Huerta sees the woman collapse to the ground -- he instantly tries to confront the attacker saying, "You just punched a f**kin' girl."

Moments later, Huerta takes off his shirt ... slams his hat to the ground ... and rushes after the man.

Chaos ensues and people scramble after the fighters, blocking the camera -- but seconds later ... a shirtless Huerta can be seen finishing his attack on the other man ... who is sprawled out on the street.

People rush in to aid the bloody man on the ground -- who eventually gets off the pavement -- as Huerta walks away from the battle ground.

Austin PD tells TMZ that officers were called to the scene -- but so far, no arrests have been made.

Huerta's manager tells us, "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."

Reasonable to defend if necessary - but the guy was apparently no longer threatening the girl. If the guy who punched the girl posed a reasonable threat to other people, then it would have been reasonable for Huerta to protect others.

Here, it appears that Huerta may have been the aggressor and rather than defending others, simply attacked. This would be an inappropriate response to the initial act of the first actor and may constitute assault.

However, without being there it is unclear. Huerta initial response may have been to separate the actors and, off camera, the puncher have have also attacked Huerta - in that situation, the response may be appropriate. In any case, when a jury sees the first guy knocking out the girl for no reason, they are going to say the same thing - Go Huerta!

135 you need to keep it real, at most if black guy would have received is a slap on the wrist, from our justice system and out parting the next day thinking he was in the right as he brags with his friends, even his friend was smiling at him after he did it. So he would not have learned anything from doing that to her, but to do it again. Roger just showed him true justice. "Keep in mind and watch close, he hit in the back of the head!!!"

personally i have no problem with the guy hitting the girl this is 2010 and if you havnt been living under a cave women are not the little defenseless angels they where made to be, they are on every tv show kicking the crap out of men, they are in all action tv movies and video games kicking the crap out of men, so in this day and age of equal rights I think it is fine and actually enjoy watching them be treated as men are, the guy that jumped in should be arrested as he was in no imediate threat, and being trained he was at an illegal advantage to just go over and get involved. But all you macho guys have to be stupid and play the Im tough guy crap and show off to the women, only to turn around and get used and abused by them and treated like crap yourself.

Roger Huerta did what any UFC fighter should do when a guy hits a women. I hope Dana White feels the same way!

If it were my girlfriend, sister, or mother that was assaulted I would not want blood, rather I would want justice. I might try to subdue the assaulter until police arrived, but I wouldn't try to kill the guy. We live in a society of laws, and when Roger decided to ignore those laws he became the same thing as the guy he was attacking.
I think the amount of sexist attitudes in the comments are hilarious as well. I don't think this would be such a big deal had it been a man instead of a woman that was hit at the beginning of the video, or how about if a woman knocked out a man instead? Would Roger Huerta have used excessive force against a woman after she knocked a man down, or would he have ignored it? Sexism and racism are both terrible things in this country, and it is moments like this where you should examine yourselves.

138 you need a real moment too, geez, so many sad ppl these days. He hit her full force in the back of the head and umm, I'm pretty sure she wasn't in the same weight braket as he was, so not seeing how a girl of the 2010, means all girls are fighting champions and can hold there own to anyone. jesus save me from these idiots.

Roger Huerta is the man. That dumb ass will think twice before he hits another girl. Of course that will come only after he is done drinking his meals for the next few months.

The gangsta should not have hit the girl. Glad someone came to her defense and taught the gansta some lessons. He should have been left there on the street alone to wake up sore, disoriented, and reflected on what he did to deserve such a beat down.
