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."

@ #43 It's people like you that waive the white flag and allow bullies like that coward fk who punched a girl in the back of the head that are "preyed" upon by said a-hole. That big nig knew what he was doing and figured that the bunch of tight jean wearing ******* wouldn't do anything about it. If it were people like you in charge our kids would end up Muslim and our women forced to walk 5 feet behind us and cover their face. Sometimes you have to fight for what you believe in, you fking p*ssy.

Never been a UFC fan, but now I'll watch Roger anytime he's on. Definitely a hero. That big f-ing jerk off who punched the women (SUCKER punched in the back of the head????) deserved a lot more than he got. I hope he is paralyzed now and has to sit and thing about what a f-ing low life he is for the rest of his life. I am going to make it a minor goal in my life to meet Roger and shake his hand for this.

And his story of how this went down should be taken as gospel should it?! Huerta is a trained fighter, the person he assaulted in all likely hood was not! I don't condone anyone ever hitting a woman and trust me, any man who tried to hit me would be breathing through his b**ls for a very long time!! However, so far it's all been hearsay with everyone else running for cover - at least make sure Huerta's story is correct and that the guy he attacked hit a woman hm?! That's his reason for the brawl and now he says the other guy hit him first - which is new!!
#52 I do agree with you, in some of the scenarios's you portrayed - but when EVERYONE has been drinking (including Huerta no doubt) the problem is brawls like this are becoming common place and the cops are seen as the enemy by all sides!! Did the woman get treatment - nobody has said, was she hit, nobody has confirmed it least of all the woman herself!!
While everybody thinks it's o.k to hit an abuser all that does is make you as abusive a person as the abuser! You call the cops, you yank the man off and hold him until the cops get there but a full on beating by a trained fighter who is soooo very proud to have beaten the living c**p out of the guy is NOT o.k!!
He may still have had justification but cheering on this guy like the audience at a gladiator fight, just because HE says a woman was hit doesn't make it so and nor is there any proof the guy he beat up did it!! Good job SOMEBODY got it on tape hm?!

Okay, so what exactly is a trained fighter supposed to do when he's threatened by violence --- which the fat brute who hit the girl did? Lie down and give up like a whipped puppy?? Not use what he learned to protect himself?? What kind of people stick up for the ******* who hit the girl and then call it "racism" when Roger, who protects women and children, got involved? Oh boo hoo, call Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, the NAACP, and President Obama! Poor thug is being picked on because of his race.

Go Roger Go! You're the best!

Roger did exactly what every man who was raised right should have done. Mrs. Huerta you did a good job! A huge beast attacked a woman from behind. I am proud of Roger for stepping up like a MAN.

are some of you people SERIOIUS?? ANYONE saying Roger did the wrong thing, or supporting the thug in ANY way should have your head checked. Hopefully the next time a dumb thug like this imbecile Roger crushed, beats YOU down and then you'd WISH that Roger was there to help you out...what a bunch of losers you haters are...it's really amazing the world we live in. Heros are actually looked down upon. some of you people need to get KO'ed to understand exactly what Roger did. we should ALL be supporting and congratulating him - VERY few people in this country would do what he did ... we need MORE Rogers!

BTW At least the guy who's bean assaulted's medical insurance company knows now who to sue for damages hm?! His lawyer too because NOBODY is allowed to assault another person like that, so there's medical bills, pain and suffering and oh yeah just the cost of being assaulted by Huerta!! Pity he didn't let the guy run off and just call the cops on him, the video shows who he is hm?!
#63 NONE of this is about race! It's people like you who make it about race! Huerta's telephone interview admitting he beat the guy to a pulp and his reasons are enough to charge him with GBH since just by watching the video it's clear Huerta chased the man down to hit him, he was NOT defending himself!!! If he was defending the woman hit he would have stayed with her to make sure she got help hm?! I mean that's what you'd want someone to do if it was your mum/daughter/sister/wife/girlfriend etc hm?! You'd want someone, anyone to make sure help was on it's way and not be more interested in handing out street justice!!
Just one more thing to make you think - what if this was not a female but a boy/girl in transition hm?!

To all the punk a** people on here who keep saying Roger took his shirt off to impress people, SHUT THE F*** up! First off, he's eye candy, so what a delight, second, it eliminates the option of this F**k wad holding onto Roger's shirt. The police should give Roger a medal for doing their job. ROGER BABY...YOU ARE TRULY MY NEW HERO!!!

They need beatins    

One dummy hits a girl then another dummy hits him. No brains here. He is lucky he wasn't shot though, bad choice although he won. What is this highschool? A pro fighter knockin out drunks ain't special either. He kicked the big black in the head. He will get a nice fine for that. Yes he is tough, but I love seeing these guys in their wheelchairs or limping around not knowing who they are like Ali years down the road. yeah, who's bad now? Was all the punches to the head worth it. Morons.

Bravo Roger, you were the only man with BALLS to stand up for the woman. No man in that crowd was brave enough to interfere. Not only you have morals but also you knock the (f)uck outta University of Texas linebacker Rashad Bobino LOL

You are golden, Roger...golden I tell you

RASHAD BOBINO, your mama didn't teach you right! Shame! You should be kicked out of your team!
