"Man, it was very weird for me," Huerta said on Monday's episode of The MMA Hour. "Really strange. To be honest, I didn't want to go [to TMZ], but everybody was, like, 'Maybe you should. You have nothing to hide.' Well, I don't. So it kind of happened like that. But at the same it was very, very weird, man."
"I was really thankful, to be honest. It could have gone either way, I guess, but then again, if you look at things correctly, you don't do that. You don't fully cloak a girl behind the head, and especially if you're three times the size of her, and they say he was, like, an NFL player. They say he could have potentially killed the girl."
"I believe the case is closed. The guy never came forward or pressed any charges, and it kinda is left at that."
"I think TMZ," Huerta replied when asked if he thinks he will remembered more for the SI cover of his TMZ fame. "Everybody watches that, I guess, huh? I don't know, man. I've always wanted to be recognized for me. That's what I do in the ring as a performer. You know, just trying to be one of the best fighters in the world. Hopefully, that ends up taking over instead of all this other stuff."
"It happened. Would have I done it again if I saw the same thing? Of course. I never expected for any of this to come out the way it came out. I'm no hero, man. I just feel like I did the right thing."
