Failed Strikeforce heavyweight experiment Brett Rogers continued his losing streak on Wednesday night by beating down his wife.

Major-league Mixed Martial Artist and Apple Valley, Minn. resident Brett Rogers was arrested and jailed in connection with assaulting his wife Wednesday in their south metro home. She was reportedly strangled, punched repeatedly in the head and face and lost a tooth in the struggle.

Brett Charles Rogers, 30, has been charged with assault in the third degree, domestic assault by strangulation and pattern of stalking conduct — all felonies –in Dakota County. He was also charged with endangerment of a child, a gross misdameanor.

His wife blacked out from being choked, suffered a golf ball sized wound on her face among smaller wounds. The couples daughter had tried to intervene after she saw Rogers strike her mother.

    from the criminal complaint

    "Rogers and T.R.’s children…told the neighbor that they were afraid to go home, and that their father had "choked" them in the past. " (His daughters are 9 and 10)

    " The girl reported she shouted for her father to stop. Rogers’ ten-year old daughter reported that she heard the shouting, and had seen her father strike her mother in the past. She also reported that her father had struck the children within the last two years. "

    " A neighbor reported that he had looked out his residence window and saw Rogers

    standing over T.R. and punching her multiple times in the head and face as she lay on the

    ground. Another neighbor stated he saw T.R. with blood streaming from her face and mouth and

    what looked like a missing tooth "

    " His wife blacked out from being choked, suffered a golf ball sized wound on her face among smaller wounds. The couples daughter had tried to intervene after she saw Rogers strike her mother. "

    Way to go SF!!! This guy is a piece of crap for doing this even if she did punch him to start it. She lost a tooth and blacked out- good luck on proving self defense. I applaud them. I guess he thought that he needs to end the losing streak ASAP and since he cannot do it in the ring, he tried to do it against a woman.

    I would like to see Kimbo and Rogers fight…you know, two never-should-have-beens battling to see who's more sad.

    I hope this guy get’s stabbed in prison. You guys remember the whole sob story when they were hyping Rogers vs Fedor? Maybe this guy needs to go back where he came from. Family beaters are some of the worst kinds of people, and Rogers should go away for a long time.
