Rogers (11-4 MMA, 0-0 BFC) makes his Bellator debut next week at Bellator 71, and the fight comes against a former friend and training partner in Kevin Asplund (15-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC). In fact, Rogers' story about just how the friends became ex-friends would seem to be part of that hell he said he's been through.

Rogers believes Asplund's wife, a friend of his own wife, may have been responsible for a fire at his house. And after a series of events and questions and blame-searching, Rogers said that essentially was the end of his friendship with Asplund. And that caused a little ruckus in the pair's inner circle of friends, as well.

I went to a local show that had two kids that had no training one the card. They didn't like each other so they some how had the state clear a fight for them. It was intresting but I thought it was cool they wanted to handle their buiseness and found a legal way to do it.

As for these two two trained fighters that have pretty serious beef, I just hope no one gets killed

I dont know, call me old fashioned, but I think choking out your wife is worse than starting a fire.
