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."

Hey #152, put your bifocals on and watch that video again. Do you see that woman do ANYTHING to the big dude ? I think not!!
What you will see is the *ussy that hit her run like a little *itch when he realizes who the hell is Man is that he was more 'than ready to take on. Run punk run, very manly.
I bet the next time Roger fights professionally again, the arena is filled with people who know Roger is a hero! If that fight takes place any where near Chicago, my family and I will be among them.
WTG Roger, the world needs more men like you.

Ha, im surprised you could actually see anything with the way the camera was moving. However, I want to see the whole video not just what camera man wants you to see. OH and I didn't know he ran, yeah that is cowardly. However my point still stands, what did that chick do to make that guy take a swing at her. See the thing is everyone wants to say a man is wrong for hitting a woman, yet the woman strikes the man first and no one says ****. If the dude just hit her yeah he's wrong and he got his ass served. Yet I smell some bull, because it is very common for a woman these days espeacially out in the club scene to start some **** and then assault a dude and think they are just going to walk away unscathed. And from seeing other crap go down in the club, it makes me wonder did this chick pull that same "ill slap you but don't hit me i'm a woman" crap.

"X," you've made claims that the poor woman, who got hit by your hero the fat bully, kicked him in the groin. Prove it now. You know you're a liar and we know you're a liar. Prove it or STFU. The guy who hit her is a racist just like you.

"Antwone," Do you really think people are taking your posts seriously?? You're playing the race card to the hilt. Yes, we have such a race problem here in the U.S. that a black family is in the White House, and there are plenty of wealthy black people in America. Why don't you go read a book and try to educate yourself. Your rants are becoming more ridiculous and comical with each post. Roger didn't commit a racial crime, in fact he didn't commit any crime whatsoever. Why aren't the Austin police investigating and charging the black man who slugged the girl?

Typical, most of these posts are by men who feel it's o.k to beat someone up in the street for allegedly hitting a woman! None of you know if it was the guy beaten or someone else in the crowd around!! Wonder how many of you behind your cheering screens have actually hit a woman too hm?! You feel so macho about defending a woman like this - perhaps if you all stopped slapping your own women around (regardless of race) this attack wouldn't be condoned by you!! I mean it's usually those with a history of abuse themselves on others who like to cheer on from the sidelines, right!!
#161 Algonquin - perhaps it's you who needs a reality check!! The US is one of the most internally racist nations going, it's a country that prides itself on it's diverse ethnic communities and is happy to welcome immigrants! That's the picture frame, political version and the only reason Obama is in the White House is because HE is black lol!! It's laughable really, everyone says oh look how far we've come, when the reality is it's just for show!! Everyone got caught up on the idealistic version of the first black president - hasn't helped much has it hm?! The US is as filled with racial tension today as it was 60 years ago, if not more so! I admire the fact that there are finally the chances for a black or any other ethnic person to do as well in the US as a white, but the reality on the street is far different and you appear to be using rose colored glasses to look through! There is racism in the police force, the army, navy and every other major force in the US - it's just they try to present you with an image that belies that fact! The ONLY time the US can claim it's overcome it's past is when there is a Native American in the Presidency - that I would pay to see lol!! Since the US was their land first and every other nation that came along committed genocide to take their land from them, nobody but them can claim to be a true American lol!!!
Why aren't the Austin police investigating the man who allegedly slugged the girl - well I don't know, he could be in a coma for all I know! However, the cops aren't going to charge someone who's already been badly beaten and assaulted - what they want now is the guy who assaulted him Huerta lol!! Wonder what the girl's story will be, if she's ever found and interviewed hm?! Wonder what the real truth is? Huerta was a hot head and there's no way he knew the full story when he chased the guy down to beat him, he'd probably been drinking too and he was soooo concerned for the girl he legged it hm?! Your comment that Huerta didn't commit a crime just shows your lack of mentality - YES he did and if the guy pursues it Huerta can be charged, because he wasn't defending himself, he chased the guy down to beat him up!! Those who say they are so proud to come from Texas - so do animals, guess that's why you love Huerta so much!!

Gotta go with Roger on this one.. Fat f*ck hits a woman, oh he's the big man right?!? NAH! 'Cause here comes Roger.. BAM! Oh where's the big woman hitter now? Oh, he's a bitch on the ground!

Good for Roger, hope the cops don't press charges in light of the situation where he defended someone who was not able to hit that fat f*ck back and defend themselves!

He should be honored for taking down some creep who thought he could punch anyone he wanted to because he was bigger!

First off to #158 I did not make claims that the dude got hit in the groin. I said that some of these mangina and simp mother****ers here don't have a problem with women beating on them, I do. Yall can be a ****ing punching bag, ill pass. Step to me with some violence and we are going to be some fighting motha****ers, I could give two ****s if you are a woman. Don't put your ****ing hands on me, period.

Second #160..., **** you. You remind me of these ***** simp pieces of **** being raised by single moms thinking that a woman can do no wrong. Remember that **** when a woman attacks you.

"X," why are you so afraid of and hostile toward women? You must really hate them. Are you a homosexual or what.

Women at the club are ridiculous these days. They think they can do and say whatever they want with no repercussions. It's great when a crap talking biznach gets knocked the hell out. Needs to happen more often. Huerta was just looking for an opportunity to fight and what better excuse to be captain save a ho. . .

X: how much of a wimp are you? If you cannot take a slap from a woman and walk away or at least control her until the law or security can take her you must really need to join a gym. There is absolutely NO EXCUSE for what that guy did to that woman, a sucker punch to the back of the head which is the most vulnerable spot anyhow makes him the ultimate coward. I was a bouncer/security in a several bars for over 11 years and never once did I have to hit a woman like I would a man. I physically restrained them until they calmed down or held them till the police arrived. For teh ones calling this racist your just flat out retarded, there was nothing to do with race, it has to do with a big Bully getting his butt kicked..
