The animal slashed Jose Luis Ochoa with a blade that had been strapped to its foot.
Ochoa had been fined only last year for being involved in the sport.
The 35-year-old was declared dead two hours after he was injured in California.
An autopsy found he had died of an accidental "sharp force injury to his right calf".
Other spectators fled when cops called to the fight showed up and found five dead roosters.
