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."

Good for Roger, that guy sucker punched the girl no matter what she did that was low and the dude deserved whatever whipping he got. I am going to go look for a shirt I can buy that represents Roger.

Whoever said vigilante justice doesn't belong in society...obviously has never been to Texas. My heart swelled with pride to see Roger go after a woman-beater!

"Huerta's mother became physically abusive, and when Huerta came to school with bruises covering his body, Child Protective Services intervened, placing him in a foster home for a short time."

what would cross your mind?

I found myself applauding Roger, but then I said to myself, this feels like wrestling. We're set up to believe this guy actually hit a woman and she dramatically falls down in front of us and Roger sees it and goes after the guy. Pulllleeeeezzz, the guy was much bigger and heavier than Roger was, this was so promotional, let's see what happens, this IS HOLLYWOOD. I would love to believe that there was this guy who would scare the **** out of a guy 10 times bigger, not happening, not buying it.

you are an IDIOT if you think Huerta's actions were justified, because then it would have been OK if someone pulled out a gun and shot Huerta for going too far (Which he clearly did by stomping on the man's head while he was down)
this is not anarchy and he is not the law. this is a civilized society and if you want to help call the police...especially since the guy is not keeping up his attack on the woman.
he is a punk for hitting a girl but Huerta is a stupid thug for launching such a vicious attack like an animal

Charlie Sheen has been known to beat up on his girlfriends and wives for years. He put a KNIFE to the throat of his girlfriend last year. For that indictment, Charlie got off with a slap on the wrist from some judge in Colorado this week. He was smiling and joking about "beating the rap" on his way out of the courtroom. He had a big money attorney help him get away with it you see. It's the usual "celebrity justice"! Money talks! Charlie is probably confident he can abuse his girlfriends or wife all he wants now.

Obviously, after listening to the Radaronline.com recordings, Mel Gibson is an abusive s***bag who thinks it's okay to beat up on women. Big tough guy Mel Gibson ... beats up on women and verbally abuses the heck out of them.

When are THESE guys going get some courtroom justice? Or is someone like Roger Huerta going to have to give them some "street justice"?

O.J. Simpson's wife got abused for years before O.J. finally killed her WITH A KNIFE. He nearly cut her head off. O.J. got away with a DOUBLE HOMICIDE because of his big money and celebrity status. Charlie Sheen or Mel Gibson could totally freak out one day when they're on drugs or drunk and kill somebody. They probably think they could easily get away with it too if they just fork over enough money for attorneys and other "experts" at trial.

Good for Roger.100% justified considering the cir***stances.The way I see it he was doing his civic duty of "detaining" this animal until the cops showed up.He just "resisted", and that was clearly a mistake. LOL

Let him go cops, go find a CRIMINAL. This joker hits a girl and got dealt with. Good, he's lucky...back when people had respect for that kind of thing it would have been worse.

The people attacking Huerta are the same people who believe that lying, thieving, murdering piece of garbage Omar Thornton killed 9 people in cold blood because of "racism"....
Ignorant obama voters with the victim mentality who think "the man" owes them something....I laugh at your self-inflicted plight and jealousy of those of us who are successful....

"Deeply saddens me to see this outpouring of support for what was essentially a hate crime. A black man was attacked an injured and people feel like celebrating as a result. So sad. America has a serious, serious race problem."
============
The "hate crime" occurred when a black thug punched a white girl from behind.
Unfortunately, too many ignorant young black men are too afraid to fight face to face and one on one, so we see this scenario played out too often...
The "serious problem" you refer to is the result of too many black racists and not enough people calling them on it...
"EXCUSIM" is destroying black culture NOT racism....
