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.
