For those that continue to believe mixed martial artists are nothing more than bar fighting baboons, think again. Well, maybe not after former UFC lightweight Roger Huerta laid the smackdown on a lowlife male outside of a Texas bar after the scumbag dropped a FEMALE partygoer.
You know how they always say nothing good ever happens at two in the morning …
The 27-year-old was in front an Austin bar around 2AM this past Saturday when people Huerta weren’t associated with began fighting. The former Sports Illustrated cover boy was within eye-shot of the scuffle when he saw one of the men involved in the skirmish cheap shot the unsuspecting female.
As soon as Huerta sees the woman drop to the pavement, he instantly confronts the attacker by screaming, “You just punched a [expletive] girl!”
Within seconds, Huerta rips off his shirt and charges the douchebag. Chaos ensues as people scramble to witness the free MMA action. Moments later, Huerta is seen pounding the dude’s face as he laid battered in the street.
According to TMZ.com, the Austin Police Department were called to the scene on Saturday but no arrests have been made thus far.
Huerta’s manager tells the popular celebrity gossip site, “I have not spoken to Roger yet about this incident, but I can say that it’s in his nature to be very protective of women.”
Thank God “El Matador” wasn’t around when Snooki got dropped … BTW, Roger Huerta is my hero!
