Dana White announced that Brett Rogers has been released from Strikeforce following his arrest Wednesday night. As reported by Fox 9:
Brett Charles Rogers, 30, has been charged with assault in the third degree, domestic assault by strangulation and pattern of stalking conduct — all felonies –in Dakota County. He was also charged with endangerment of a child, a gross misdameanor.
His wife blacked out from being choked, suffered a golf ball sized wound on her face among smaller wounds. The couples daughter had tried to intervene after she saw Rogers strike her mother.
Rogers admits he had been drinking before an argument broke out with he and his wife. He claims she punched him and he returned force.
So she punched first and he “returned force”… Are you f*cking kidding me? He’s a 260 pound Mixed Martial Arts fighter! And his wife isn’t Josh Barnett, though I hope there is a Barnett doppelganger waiting to be his domestic partner in his prison cell. Look, I don’t like to be biased but if there is evidence of physical abuse AND in front of children, then justice should be served in the form of a huge scary dude making Rogers his prison bitch. That’s all I’m saying.
I don’t care if she threw the first punch. What’s wrong with this guy? Has he never seen Chris Rock? You never ever hit a woman! There is never ever a reason to hit a woman… But you can shake the shit out of her.
