Roger Huerta on Street Fight - 'I Got the Better of Him'

8/5/2010 2:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ just spoke with Roger Huerta -- the former UFC fighter involved in a bloody street fight in Texas this weekend -- who tells us he only got violent ... after the other guy swung at him.

In a phone conversation just moments ago, Huerta told us he tried to remain calm early Saturday morning when he watched some random "huge guy" punch a girl in the head in the middle of the street ... explaining, “I just don’t think that it's right to hit a woman.  Period.”

Huerta tells us, "I approached the man calmly and said, “Do you know what you just did?  You just knocked out this girl."

But Huerta claims the other guy responded, "F*ck you, f*ck these bitches, I'll knock out any f*ckin' bitch that I wanna f*ckin' knock out, I’ll knock your f*cking bitch ass out.”

Huerta added, "... and as he's saying this, he's taking off his shirt ... and at that point I was like, alright.'"

Huerta insists that he didn't throw the first punch -- and only reacted when the other guy "started swinging at me" ... and we all know what happened next.

"I got the better of him and I left," Huerta said. 

The 27-year-old explained, "If that was my mom, if that was my sister, my spouse, anyone … I would’ve wanted someone to step in and do something about it.”

a lot of women are nothing but trouble makers,and it doesn't matter what time of day it is,it is just in there blood,i know this personally,who knows what this braud did,what ever it was it is still wrong to sneak up on her dainty little frame and sucker punch her in the back of the head,the guy should of had the decency,to punch her in the mouth at least she would have seen it coming and could have defended her dainty little frame her self,in stead of getting a fine UFC guy involved like that,it still is not wright to hit a women,but sometimes they can push a man just so that he snaps and maybe this was one off them,i just hope that Roger does not get any heat over this,now that would suck the big one.

Review the video. The woman walks away from the big dude and then he sucker punches her. Then you see Huerta walk up to the dude and talk to him. The big dude obviously thought he had big balls after sucker punching the woman and mouthed off and then took a fighting stance against the wrong person. That Huerta is a pro fighter really has no bearing on this. The other guy threatened him and even though you can't see it in the video he probably did throw the first punch. At that point Huerta is just defending himself. He probably did the guy a favor by knocking him out. If he hadn't and the idiot kept fighting he would have gotten worse.

I can't believe all the rediculous comments on this topic. If the people trashing Huerta saw the video I'm sure they would change their mind, and if not they need to re-evaluate their morals. And anybody that says the lady put herself into the situation so its alright really needs to talk to their mom, sister, daughter, wife or girlfriend and think if it was them. Buddy got what he deserved as far as I'm concerned.
ATTA BOY ROGER! Somebody need to take care of buisness

Baboono must go to jail. Roger's actions were commendable not for seeking revenge, but in discontinuing Baboono's tirade - who knows who else was going to get sucker punched, or worse.

Did I mispell Baboono's name? We all know what he is.

I Bleed Burnt Orange and am a Texas Alum! But what "Bobs" did was shameful! Im glad he "GOT KNOCKED THE FXXX OUT" Bobs tried to be a bully on the field as well but there are a few that also know its not the only time he's gotten his axx undressed!

I have seen more and more violence directed at women and have recently decided that men have lost their honor. Seeing this online brought back my faith in men in general. I do understand that there are some women out there that are pretty hard core but there are a lot more of us that are not. I personally would want someone to step in and help my obnoxious daughter if she managed to get herself in a bit too deep. way to go roger! you stand up for what you believe in and way to go to your mother who raised you to respect that women are not as big and bad as they would like to be.

Roger did great an I applaud him for standing up to a thug wh hit a woman from behind. What I don't understand is who are the guys that think Roger should be sued or lose his career, You guys probably are the type of guys that enjoy hitting women and Roger put a good beat down on one of you guys. Just because your a pro fighter dosen't mean you can't stick up for somebody who just got beat up!
