Former Strikeforce Heavyweight Contender Brett Rogers Arrested Again

Sunday evening, former Strikeforce heavyweight contender Brett Rogers was taken into police custody again due to an outstanding warrant. Rogers was released around 6 AM Monday after “failing to comply with the conditions of his pre-sentence release.”

Rogers plead guilty in September to felony third-degree assault stemming from a domestic violence assault on his wife in June of this year. The attack led to his immediate release from his Strikeforce contract.

Post-release, he lost his first bout outside of Strikeforce to Eddie Sanchez at Titan Fighting Championships.

Rogers awaits sentencing on his plea deal on November 30th and faces a maximum of five years in prison with a fine of $10,000.
