Biography(references)Rogers was born in Chicago, Illinois and grew up in the south and west sides of the city, also living in the Cabrini Green housing project, a notoriously dangerous and gang-infested neighborhood. He would often come to the aid of one of his younger brothers during street fights and, because of his imposing size, Rogers was often recruited to be in gangs, but turned down the offers. Rogers attended Harding High School in Saint Paul, Minnesota where he played football and basketball. Rogers began his MMA training with Team Bison in Bloomington, MN, in the garage of head trainer Mike Reilly. Rogers was charged in early 2011 with third degree assault on his wife and was immediately released from his Strikeforce contract.
Fighter Trivia(references)In September 2011, Rogers pleaded guilty to domestic abuse for choking his wife and repeatedly punching her to unconsciousness in June 2011. The man made a quick exit and later called the police and had a written statement filed. While at the Ramsey County Jail, a former cellmate also accused Rogers of sexual assault.
