Former UFC star and current Bellator contender Roger Huerta speaks out about a recent video that surfaced on TMZ.com showing the mma fighter knockout a man after he sucker punched a woman to the floor. Here’s what Huerta had to say.
“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.”
