Austin, Texas – Former UFC star Roger Huerta engaged in a street fight during a street brawl. Huerta who had no plans on fighting that time, went avenger mode after witnessing a man struck down a woman. A video footage of the action found its way to media outlets, showing Huerta confronting the man and both men engaging in a fist fight.
“You just hit a f*****g girl!” said the former UFC fighter as he confronted the woman hitter. Moments later, both men removed their shirts and chaos ensues. While the whole fight was not caught by the camera, it showed a Huerta pinning and striking the man and walked away.
Onlookers rushed the man and tried to provide some aid.
The video prompted legal experts to discuss whether Huerta’s actions warrant for his arrest. Many felt that Huerrta, being a trained fighter and possessing fighting skills that are lethal if expertly used, should have shown more restraint. Lawyers who have viewed the
video say that Huerta is liable for serious physical injuries.
The video also shows that Huerta pursued the man despite efforts from a friend to stop him from engaging the woman hitter.
Dana White, president of the UFC, said he does not approve street fights but supported Huerta’s version of defending a woman’s honor.
“In no way do I condone street fighting, but when a guy puts his hands on a woman he deserves to be knocked the f*ck out. Good for Roger.”
