Huerta tells us, “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.”
MMA Junkie has the details on Austin police ‘looking into the situation’, and Bloody Elbow examines the sticky legal situation Roger might be in. As Mayhem Miller found out the hard way, MMA fighters can be charged with assault with a deadly weapon if they use their ninja skillz on the public, so that might be something to worry about too. But I still have enough faith in the legal system that I can hope someone who stands up for those who can’t won’t end up getting too severely punished for it. At least if they’ve got good legal representation, that is.
