6/9/2011 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Weston Cage wants to press charges against the man who beat him to a bloody pulp in the middle of a Hollywood street ... TMZ has learned.

According to a Cage family friend, the man who unleashed the beating -- Weston's former trainer Kevin Villegas -- has since been fired ... and has become the target in a police investigation.

But law enforcement sources tell us, the LAPD is also investigating Weston himself -- after he allegedly incited the fight by attempting to roundhouse kick Villegas outside the Hollywood restaurant where the incident took place.

0609_weston_mini_launchWeston hasn't filed anything yet with officials -- but he plans to make his move as soon as possible.

Villegas' defense will be that Weston Cage has **** for brains. Seriously, he will be requesting an medical procedure with tissues taken from the inside of Weston's skull to test for actual fecal matter. Case dismissed.

Hanging to da lef    

Come on Weston, Man up! You got your ass kicked after you started it, and obviously, based on the video, Mr. Villegas used enough force to stop you from attacking him further, even though you kept fighting. He used enough force to stop your attack on him, then held you down to keep you from further attacking him and to prevent you from getting hurt any further. He then called out to other people around him to call 911. He should press charges against you, then sue your ass for firing him! You sir, are a bigger PANOCHA than you momma has, after years of of it being consistantly pounded!!

It doesn't really matter who started it. The trainer used excessive force by continuing to punch him when Weston was down. It basically a felonious assault but I doubt it will get charged that way. No question in my mind the trainer crossed the line.

According to witness statements (the audio from the filmers)weston did initiate this by attempting a round house kick to the trainer. The trainer obviously was protecting himself. So it happened on the edge of a side walk OH WELL thats where Weston decided to act like a fool. Witness statements and film will work in the trainers favor. Good Job Guys!! 2 thumbs up to JUSTICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Villegas? That name alone speaks volumes. They are the er minorities who are stealing jobs from other ethnicities; one carried out the ashes of California's former Governor, and, now this one assaults his boss.

From everything I've read/heard on this story, HE was the one that started the fight and threw the first punch... how are you going to press charges against someone for defending themselves against someone who attacked them first?

Get help dude.. get help!

I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well." Then I ran.

Kenneth... that one literally had me LMAO!

what was the embarrassed, outraged trainer doing when he punched his bloody face repeatedly and pretended the wacko needed a sidewalk bed? this is not making a good example of normal restraint and orderly conduct. moron.

What really bothers me is the 10 guys standing around recording this instead of trying to break up the fight. There was definitely more than enough of them!

Even if I agree that Wess started this fight there is no sense in the continued beating. Knock his axx out and get over it. BTW who is the person filming this? Couldn't they be in trouble for not reporting it or trying to stop it. I thought that was a new law or something :/
