Roger Huerta Saves Little Girl's Life, Proves Status As Superhero

In August, former UFC star and current Bellator fighter Roger Huerta was involved in a streetfight in Austin, Tx. It wasn't a case of a professional fighter getting into random fights with people at bars though. In this case a man had punched a woman and Huerta, known as someone who is protective of women, took care of business.

A lot of people don't know this story---

But while Roger Huerta was out here training for his fight camp against Pat Curran he was swimming in the beach on the southside of the island of Phuket.

A small child got caught in the under current--and Roger Huerta preformed CPR on her until paramedics arrived (which in Thailand took sometime--greatly making 'survival odds' seem unlikely). Literally it was the type of experience that changes most peoples lives forever.

It should be impossible to hate a guy with Roger's great back-story, all-out action style and tendency to take extreme measures to protect the innocent.
