LAS VEGAS – Strikeforce has released heavyweight fighter Brett Rogers.

Dana White, president of sister promotion UFC, confirmed the contract termination today following a UFC 132 press conference.

Rogers was arrested on Wednesday and charged with felonious third-degree assault and misdemeanor endangerment of a child following an alleged altercation with his wife.

White said the release came immediately after the arrest, which took place in Apple Valley, Minn.

Can you see what it says on his left arm tattoo? I think it says "Irony"

This comes as a surprise.

I never really thought of him as a violent person.

I don't mean to joke about the situation, because it really is unfortunate and my heart goes out to his wife and children.. but when I read this I couldn't help but think about a picture I saw the other day..

Lol, Kpro, FastKnockout, I have to spread the love. I can't stand domestic abuse, but they do say that laughter is the best medicine. I feel better now.

All jokes aside, I really do feel for his family.. But I know he will get what deserves somewhere down the road.
