Strikeforce Heavyweight Brett Rogers fired today.

June 30, 2011 // 1 Comment

He was arrested for (allegedly) beating his wife up pretty bad. Outside of that he’s lost 3 in a row, so it’s not totally unexpected. http://www.sbnation.com/mma/2011/6/30/2253102/dana-white-brett-rogers-fired-immediately-mma-news   it seems there’s more to the story… Rogers, 30, has been charged with third-degree-assault, domestic assault by strangulation, a pattern of stalking conduct; all felonies. He was also charged with the endangerment of a child. Official police reports indicate that officers were dispatched to the Rogers home in Apple Valley, MN at [...]

Marquardt speaks out.

Here’s his side of the story.. http://ironforgesiron.com/2011/06/video-nate-marquardt-lets-us-know-why-he-was-released-couldnt-fight/ Normally I’d just post this and that’d be it, but something about this seems off to me. Sure Dana White has made some hotheaded decisions before, but firing one of your top contenders on the spot when he was slated to be in the main event seems serious.
