Elements of the Crime: “The Grim” only had his hand raised following one fight in 2011, and that was simply to apply a pair of handcuffs. An evening of drinking led to a serious, lop-sided altercation between the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix competitor and his wife Tiuana. Rogers busted her face up and knocked a tooth out before choking her unconscious in front of their daughter and neighbor. Before heading to trial, he was again picked up for violating a protection order stemming from the initial assault.
The Charges: Three felony counts: assault in the third degree, domestic assault by strangulation, and pattern of stalking conduct . Also a gross midemeanor: endangerment of a child
The Sentence: As part of a plea deal, Rogers copped to the assault charge in exchange for the rest of the charges being dropped. He was sentenced to 60-days in jail, but was given credit for the 26-days previously served. He served an additional two weeks before an early release saw him back on the streets. As part of his probation, he must enroll in a domestic abuse education program, undergo a chemical dependency evaluation, and refrain from talking trash.
Career Fallout: Shortly after his arrest, Rogers was cut from his contract with Strikeforce. His next fight would come against Eddie Sanchez under the Titan FC banner. Rogers lost an incredibly boring decision.
Elements of the Crime: Just before gracing television screens as a coach on The Ultimate Fighter Season 14, “Mayhem” was arrested following a confrontation with his sister at a house party. It would seem that his larger sister had kicked back a few too many brews before attempting to leave the party and get behind the wheel. Miller’s efforts to prevent her from drinking and driving turned physical as he secured a headlock and refused her permission to leave. Basically, it was your typical Miller-family fun night.
The Charges: Simple assault and false imprisonment
The Sentence: Charges were dropped before he headed to trial.
Career Fallout: His fight with Bisping went on as planned, and fans were sentenced to two and a half rounds of wretched standup and horrid cardio.
