Brett 'The Grimm' Rogers

Brett Rogers is a heavyweight mixed martial artist.

Rogers most recently faced off against Alistair Overeem for the champion's Strikeforce heavyweight title after losing to Emelianenko, and lost to Overeem as well by a dominant ground and pound assault mercifully ended by the referee's stoppage.

Rogers next faced Ruben Villareal in the W-1 promotion, winning via unanimous decision. He was next set to participate in the Strikeforce heavyweight tournament, fighting Fabricio Werdum in the first round. Instead he faced Josh Barnett in the quarterfinals. Barnett defeated Rogers via second-round arm triangle choke submission.

A few weeks later Rogers was charged with assaulting his wife and he was immediately cut from Strikeforce, which was confirmed by UFC president Dana White.

Rogers next made his Titan FC debut against fellow promotional newcomer and UFC veteran Eddie Sanchez, losing via split decision. A month later, Rogers was arrested once again after failing to comply with all the conditions of his pre-release in September.

Rogers was sentenced to nearly two months in prison for the case of domestic assault on November 30th.

Rogers next faced Todd Allee after being released. The fight's result was a no-contest due to an illegal blow to the back of the head. It was unclear which fighter gave or received the blow.

Rogers next made his Bellator debut in a grudge match against Kevin Asplund, defeating Asplund via doctor stoppage between the second and third rounds. With the victory, Rogers earned a shot in the season seven heavyweight tournament.

In the semifinals, eventual heavyweight champion Alexander Volkov broke Rogers' arm with a kick and defeated him via unanimous decision.

After recovering, Rogers stated he was coming back strong against tournament veteran Eric Prindle. The fight never materialized and Rogers was mysteriously released from the promotion.

After a hefty layoff Rogers next signed with M-1 to make his debut against Dave Keeley.
