Roger Huerta MMA: Why did the former UFC fighter KO Texas linebacker Rashad Bobino with soccer kicks?

In a surprising turn of events back in 2010, former UFC fighter Roger Huerta found himself involved in a street altercation that left former Texas Longhorns linebacker Rashad Bobino on the receiving end of soccer kicks. The incident, captured on video by TMZ, unfolded with Bobino initially striking a woman, prompting Huerta, known as "El Matador," to intervene.

The footage shows a chaotic scene, with verbal exchanges and a growing crowd. As the commotion settled down, the video abruptly transitioned to Huerta and Bobino shirtless, surrounded by onlookers. Although the camera angle makes it difficult to discern the details clearly, at the 1:05 mark, Huerta appears to deliver a head stomp to Bobino, who lies on the ground with blood on his shirt.

Check out the video below:


According to TMZ, no arrests were made that night, and Huerta received support from the MMA community for his actions. However, not everyone applauded his actions, with some finding the glorification of the incident appalling.

UFC honcho Dana White also later commented on the matter, saying:

"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."
