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.”

To #85 - Antwone

You are soooooooo wrong. I don't give a rats ass what color you or he or they are. Huerta wasn't looking for a fight..he was just standing there. You don't sucker punch another person!!!! If you really think they wronged you, face them man to man and deal with it. Punching a girl like that guy did was wrong in every sense. He was a coward! nothing else to say. White black asian pink or freaking purple, he deserved someone stepping up to him.

Why do I have the feeling your the kind of guy that would keep beating the woman on the ground rather than manning up?

People ALWAYS have to pull the race card... Doesn't matter what color you are. If you deserve an ass whopping then you deserve one. Keep ur hands to your self and no body gets hurt. Talk **** to me and threaten me after I ask "WTF" and yes it will go down as well. All these whiny bitches commenting how he's a trained fighter and pull the race card etc is BS. I saw no octagon there? Just a big dude that thought he could hit whoever he wanted. Criminal charges should be brought against the man for hitting a woman. Or leave it as street justice as he got beat down like the bitch he really is. I didn't see Roger going to the "original fight" that broke out just stepped in when the big ass man hit a chick. If that was my chick that got knocked out bet that dude would of had a broken face as well.

Antwone is just not that interesting; may need help from the Dos Equis guy, although I think the Dos Equis guy may bitch slap Antwone first for being a woman beater

who are all these people on here acting like it is okay to hit a woman if she "deserved it"!? get a clue. it is NOT okay to hit a woman. that's like saying a woman is asking for it if she wears sexy clothing. wtf. good for him for beating the crap out of the loser. the issues that dude must have with women are clear if he felt the need to sucker bunch a girl in the back of the head. he should take his anger/female and whatever other issues and figure out why he is so f'ed up that he has to act like that.

Roger - PLEASE come back to Minnesota! We miss you! Texans carry guns but your bare knuckles are exactly the type of immediate victim restitution that this state needs. Keep the hat, but leave the shirts in Texas – you will dramatically improve the scenery in the cities with your beautiful body. Also, don’t let anyone fool you – your chivalrous actions are precisely what this country needs.

I saw the vid a few times. I'm still on the fence. What compelled that black dude to sucker punch that chick in the back of her head?

Who really knows unless witnesses were there to verify or refute these allegations.

If everyone claims that Huerte was shirtless when he KTFO'd the bloke, then why did I see (towards the end of the vid) him coming to ensure that the ****er was okay? Unless it was a different shirtless bloke?

Either way, Huerta did what ALL my male friends would have done in that situation. So, kudos.

How could people say he should of mind his business. If a child or woman are in trouble people should be able to help. He hit a woman from behind and he deserved to get hit back. You heard what he said; "I'll knock out any bitch I want" and "**** this bitches"! Besides being a coward he's a monster. Shame on his "MOM" who raised him!!! Thank you Roger for helping a woman you are trully a MAN. Your mom raised you well. And regardles if that woman did or said something to deserve this he should of walked away. That's what a real man does.
