Cops Investigating Street Fight Involving ex-UFC Star

TMZ has learned the Austin Police Department has viewed the tape of the bloody street brawl involving ex-UFC star Roger Huerta ... and have opened an investigation into the incident.

We're told cops are interested in interviewing everybody who was present during the Saturday morning brawl -- including Huerta and the man he knocked out.

Law enforcement sources tell us so far cops have not identified the man Huerta knocked out -- or the woman who THAT guy attacked ... but officials are working on it.

As we previously reported, Huerta claims he only launched his attack AFTER the other guy threw a punch at him ... and all of that came after the unknown man socked a woman in the back of the head.

Roger Huerta - Street FightUPDATE: Roger will not be punished by the fighting league he is currently contracted with -- Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney  tells TMZ, "Roger is in no danger at all of being removed from Bellator based on this situation."

This is the sort of stuff that should happen more often! The dude clocks the woman. That's bad. Instant Karma arrives and gets swung on. Roger KO's the creep. Everyone is happy!!!!

Roger, keep up the good work!

@2tellthetruth: No woman "deserves" to be punched. End of story. Go away with your mysogynistic caveman talk.

PEOPLE DESERVE A LOT OF THINGS BUT IT'S ALL A MATTER OF OPINION.

FAT****S WHO SUCKER PUNCH FEMALES AND PEOPLE WHO TRY TO DEFEND THEIR ACTIONS DESERVE MY S&W DISCHARGED BETWEEN THE EYES.

Interesting how we everyday hide behind alias names and spew the worst hate possible in human beings.

They should investigate him. He was standing around waiting to fight anyone, watch the video. A guy as highly trained as he is, should not be outside of any bar waiting to fight. I don't believe his lame explanation. Just because another person breaks the law, it's not an excuse for him to do so.

To post #3 2tellthetruth - You're the only brainless jackazz out there. You have exposed yourself as being an idotic fool. You better change your comment name because everyone now knows what an idiot you are and will never take any of your comments seriously. One day, maybe one of the women you love will get a beat down. Then let's see how you'll feel.

Way to go TMZ, if you hadn't aired this video the cops would probably not be involved. The guys deserved what he got. I hope that what ever happens, the guy who hit the woman gets in trouble and not Roger.

WELL THANK YOU, BUT LIKE I SAID IT'S ALL A MATTER OF OPINION. BUT THIS STORY REMINDS ME OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE QUOTES FROM ONE OF THE MOST BADASS MOVIES OF ALL TIMES, THE BOONDOCK SAINTS:

"NOW WE MUST ALL FEAR EVIL MEN. BUT THERE IS ANOTHER KIND OF EVIL WHICH WE MUST FEAR THE MOST, AND THAT IS THE INDIFFERENCE OF GOOD MEN."

ROGER HUERTA WAS AT THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME. IF NOT THAT FAT ****ER WOULD HAVE WALKED AWAY TO ENJOY THE REST OF HIS NIGHT WHILE EVERYONE ELSE WATCHED FROM THE SIDELINES.

The police should give Huerta a pat on the back for resolving the situation. Finally, someone actually got what the deserved on the spot.
