Cops Investigating Street Fight Involving ex-UFC Star

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."

Mr. Big cold ****ing a female that isn't looking and then rips off is orange shirt to take on Roger. You can certainly see when the guy from the crowd comes running out screaming Rogers name, Mr Big must of realized who he was ready to thrown down with, he takes off running, proving himself to be coward he really is.
Roger, you have gained many fans from this, myself included Great job. Maybe the next female that gets hit by a Big man will be one of your relatives

That guy got what he deserved. He probably thought he was a mister shot for knocking a girl out and thought he could take on anybody after that. The guy that got KTFO probably knows now that it's different fighting a guy especially one that is facing him. Good for Roger. He should of kicked his head in a lot more.

Wow dumb people.
He was not "defending" her. He was too late. It was already over. All they needed to do was hold the guy and call the police. Since Huerta instigated a fight after the guy was walking away and no longer after the girl, he is now at fault also.
This is not 1850. Hitting a woman is not worse than hitting a man in the same cir***stances.
These people who try to make it sound worse because a woman was hit instead of a man being hit are ignorant hot heads.

Yea! Good for him! That punk deserved what he got! Maybe if people realized that other will put a stop to their ghetto **** in public, they'll be less likely to do it! GOOD JOB ROGER, I GOT UR BACK!

What Roger did was great, but
Just to make it clear...
Roger takes off his shirt runs after the guy does his thing. The great camera guy slowly makes his way over and caught what everyone seems to think was Roger kicking the guy in the face....
Is everyone blind Roger took his shirt off... the guy seen kicking and punching the "woman hitter" is wearing a grey shirt.. looks alot like the guy with long hair wearing a grey shirt yelling and telling the guy to get up as people hold him back at the end of the video.. WoW so many people and no one can see that or put two and two together.... Watch video again Roger doesn't need to stomp this s*** bag...Get it right people..... Sham on you TMZ for not pointing that out.... or even posting the correct info after even speaking to Roger, where i am sure he told you that that was not him stomping and punching the guy.. Get your info correct...You can lie but the video doesnt... WATCH IT AGAIN

@101 .. hahaha ya cuz he was black, you're a huge loser if thats what you think, if you knew Roger you'd know he has plenty of multi raced friends let alone black friends you ignorant dumbass..

Great job to see in that whole crowd of panzies and cowards Roger was the only one man enough to come to the defence of a helpless woman. Yes it was over as some say, over for her, but it was far from over for the woman beater, he got what he deserved, violence against woman is cowardly anyone can hit a woman whats the challenge. Roger you're a good man and I commend you for doing the right thing. To all you losers who stood around and did nothing, you bunch of chicken ****s, shame on you for just letting her suffer you all need lessons in life. She was someone's girl, sister, daughter, maybe even mother ... all you did was stand there and watch, you're all a disgrace, fortunately Roger isn't a punk a55 prison b!tch .. Good work kid you make us real men proud, next time I see you in Vegas I'll be sure to buy you a bottle at my table!!

The first guy assaulted the woman. Then Roger assaulted the guy to look tough and impress this girl in front of the crowd as well as to get "revenge" on her behalf.

He was not defending anyone at that point. If he was there to block the guy from hitting her a few seconds earlier or if the guy kept attacking and Roger pulled him off of her, then he would be defending her.
If the first guy walked up to a man and hit him from behind it would be just as bad as this "defenseless" woman. Anyone you hit that can't see you coming is defenseless. He should not have not hit anyone male or female.
Attacking a female is no worse than hitting a male. I bet everyone would have just thought it was funny if the first guy had hit another guy and knocked him down from behind instead of this girl. Ignorant and old fashioned in 2010.
The law treats male and female assaults the same.

Fat hand puppet    

Why are the cops investigating Roger Huerta, trying to decide if he is given a medal or a key to the city.
Everytime I watch that video it gives me warm feeling inside. That guy Roger is my hero.

Antwone is obviously as troll and chose a "black-sounding" screen name to get a reaction and you fell for it. He might as well have said his name was Leroy Jackson.

I think the guy that punched the woman in the head got what he should have gotten. It clearly shows him walking up to this woman and taking full swing at her head. No one deserves that, he was 3x's her size. Roger you are what more men should be!
