On TMZ television Wednesday, a segment was presented showing a disturbing video shot in Austin, Texas, of former UFC fighter Roger Huerta engaged in a street fight with another man. The video shows why Huerta engaged a man roughly twice his size: The larger man had punched a woman. Huerta is among the majority of men who apparently was taught — and believes in enforcing — to never hit a woman. After some moving about, the video shows Roger Huerta kicking the other man, apparently already having beaten him to the ground. By Thursday, the TMZ-obtained video of Huerta’s street fight had gone viral.
Like many fights, it began over a girl. But, in this instance, Roger Huerta stepped in after a huge African-American male enters the video and punches a young woman in the face, knocking her to the ground. Huerta is heard on the video yelling, “You just punched a f**kin’ girl!”
The other guy, wary now, steps away from the confrontational Huerta. The TMZ video shows the two squaring off, then a shirtless Huerta, nicknamed “El Matador” in mixed martial arts competitions, charges the much larger man. The crowd in the video surges, obscuring the street fight. When next there is a clear view of Huerta and the fellow street fighter, Huerta is standing over the man, kicking him in the head.
According to CBS News, police were called to the scene but no arrests were made at the time. However, police reportedly may make arrests based on the video evidence.
Why would Austin Police look into arresting anyone? The video shows a large man assaulting a woman, then it shows two men, one of whom is the same male who assaulted the young woman, set to fight. Then, seconds later, the smaller male, identified as former UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) lightweight fighter Roger Huerta, is seen driving a full-on stomp to the head of the downed attacker. The assaulting male will most likely be arrested for his sudden attack on the female. Huerta may face charges as well, given the videotaped evidence and depending on local laws regarding street fighting and assaults. The TMZ -obtained video capture of Huerta kicking the man when he was down may prove problematic.
The good news regarding the Roger Huerta street fight is that chivalry does not appear to be dead. Although the former UFC fighter (he now fights for Bellator Fighting Championships) may face charges, he defended the honor of the attacked woman. It is likely something that the attacker will not forget anytime soon. And, if he does, there’s a video of the street fight to remind him of a prevalent social maxim: never hit a woman.
