“Just so we all know, I’m innocent,” Herrig said in a video posted to her Instagram story (via Nolan King of MMA Junkie). “So, a girl stopped in the middle of traffic in (expletive) Vegas. I was like, ‘What the (expletive)?’ It was for a penny. Then, I was giving her (expletive) over it. I’m like, ‘It’s just a penny.’ Then, she got all mad, and then she got all up in my face. I was like, ‘You should probably punch me if you want to,’ and she (expletive) did punch me. Then, I punched her back twice-ish. She gave me a bloody nose and I never bleed my own blood. I was very upset.”

A friend on Herrig could also be heard in the video stating that the unnamed woman suffered a black eye during the altercation.

Herrig also says that she was waiting for security to arrive to break everything up, but security never arrived on the scene.

“I was waiting for Vegas security to come and rescue us – and they never did,” Herrig said. “Well, it was (expletive). I was like, ‘Uh, well, I don’t want to be too violent and hurt her too bad because then I’ll get in trouble. Security, come break this up.’ They never did, so that kind of sucked.”

The fighter also posted the following image on Instagram a short time after the altercation:
