See what the heavyweight striker has to say…
- Brett Rogers recently spoke about his past issues and the difficulty signing on with a company. Here are the highlights…
On Being Accountable For His Actions: "It's frustrating, but I do understand why people are concerned. I'm a professional fighter. I shouldn't have done what I did. But I'm a man that's capable of making mistakes, just like anyone. I did it, and I'm sorry about it. Now it's all just about getting better. I just use it as a lesson learned. I'm happy to tell everyone what I learned and how I'm making myself better."
On Interest From World Series of Fighting: "World Series of Fighting saw what happened in the past with me and my wife, and they have a nice little list of tasks they want me to accomplish before they sign me, which is cool," Rogers said. "I understand it; they're working with a top network. But I still would like to fight for them. I'm telling you, I have no problems. Me and my wife are better than ever because of what I learned from that experience. I'm hoping they'll see what they want to see and give me another chance. I've got a fight coming up in Ecuador. I'm going to go out there and bust my ass and try to gain their interest so maybe they'll want to bring me on."
On Working With American Top Team: "I enjoy everything about American Top Team," Rogers said. "Ricardo Liborio is the head coach, and their whole team has been around the world and have proven their skills. Everyone there is a top athlete. There's so much to like. Top athletes with top coaches from all over the world that know what they're doing all the way around. I was in a gym where everything was centered around me. Now, I'm around other fighters that are better than me, and I'm getting help every day and helping everyone else that I can. We just grind. We get in, work, come back home, eat, sleep and do it all over again."
On What he Will do Until Someone Signs Him: "I just want to be a worldwide fighter and work with someone who's willing to work with me," Rogers said. "I'm at the best gym, and I'm just trying to learn as much as I can. I'm going to go out there and do my thing like I need to. I'm trying to knock people's head off and raise hell for everybody."
