Brett Rogers cut from Strikeforce following June 30 arrest

Like we say on the Internet ... GTFO.

Strikeforce heavyweight hoodlum Brett Rogers has been released from the promotion effective immediately following his arrest earlier today for third-degree assault and misdemeanor endangerment of a child following his (cough) "alleged" ground-and-pound beatdown of Mrs. "Grim."

UFC President Dana White confirmed the release in the aftermath of this afternoon's UFC 132 pre-fight press conference.

Rogers, who went from changing tires to making license plates, was last seen getting bounced from the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix Tournament by Josh Barnett back on June 18 in Dallas.

The loss dropped him to 1-3 in his last four bouts with all three of his defeats coming by way of submission or technical knockout.

Whether or not his professional decline had anything to do with the self-destruction of his personal life is purely speculative, but if the police report is any indication of his immediate future, we've likely seen the last of Rogers inside the cage.

Of course he's innocent until proven guilty and blah, blah, blah, but one thing is certain, he's no longer a fighter under the Zuffa umbrella.

Bail was reportedly set at $100,000, which has yet to be paid, and Rogers will be back in court tomorrow (Friday, July 1, 2011).
