Eddie Alvarez On Fighting Roger Huerta, Future Fights With Aoki and Melendez

Before Eddie Alvarez contends with some of the great lightweights outside the UFC, he must first get past Roger Huerta at Bellator 33 on Oct. 21st in Philadelphia.

Roger Huerta Earns Some Street Credit In Bloody Brawl (UPDATE)

WAR Matador,

Austin around 2 AM on Saturday morning … when some other people began fighting. Roger was near the scuffle … when he saw one of the men involved punch a female who was standing near the ruckus.

Once Huerta sees the woman collapse to the ground — he instantly tries to confront the attacker saying, “You just punched a f**kin’ girl.”

Moments later, Huerta takes off his shirt … slams his hat to the ground … and rushes after the man.

No arrest have been made in the incident, but Rogers manager had this to say,

“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.”

UPDATE
UFC President Dana White tells TMZ:

“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.”

UPDATE 2
Roger Huerta tells TMZ

“I just don’t think that it’s right to hit a woman. I approached the man calmly and said, ‘Do you know what you just did? You just knocked out this girl.’ [He responds] ‘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.’ … As he’s saying this, he’s taking off his shirt … and at that point I was like, alright … I got the better of him and I left. 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.”
