Strikeforce Heavyweight Brett Rogers

Brett Rogers (Pictured) was arrested Monday morning for allegedly violating the terms of his pre-sentencing release. According to the AppleValleyPatch, a warrant to take Rogers into custody was issued on September 30th, but specifics regarding where failed to comply with the conditions of his agreement were not disclosed. 

Last month, the former Strikeforce heavyweight pleaded guilty to one count of third-degree assault stemming from his June 29th arrest for allegedly attacking his wife, Tiuana, at their home in Minnesota.

Rogers was initially charged with assault in the third-degree, domestic assault by strangulation, pattern of stalking conduct and endangerment of a child. All felonies. As part of his plea agreement, the other three charges were dismissed.

The Apple Valley Minnesota Police Department were called to the Rogers home earlier this summer after a neighbor complained of hearing loud screams and breaking glass. According to the official police report, an onlooker saw Rogers punching his wife in the face while she was on the ground.

The Rogers family claims to have since worked out their issues, however the 265-pounder was immediately fired from Strikeforce by UFC president Dana White when news of his legal troubles surfaced.

Rogers’ sentencing is scheduled for November 30th. The 30-year-old faces a maximum penalty on the assault conviction of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

“The Grim” resumed his mixed martial arts career last month by losing a split decision to Eddie Sanchez at “Titan Fighting Championship 20.”
