TRUassassin Fight Gear and Apparel Sponsors Bellator Fighter Brian Rogers at the Bellator championships 78

On October 26th 2012, TRUassassin Fight Gear and Apparel will be sponsoring Bellator fighter Brian Rogers as he steps in the cage with Strikeforce vet Dominique Steele with a pro record of 6-2 at the Bellator championships 78 at Wright state University in Dayton Ohio.

Short Bio

Rogers was a 4-year letter winner and a 3-year starter as inside linebacker for the Walsh University Cavaliers between 2002 and 2005. He was named All-Conference by the Mid States Football Association twice and left Walsh University second all time in career tackles.

Rogers works as an associate special education teacher for the Leap program in his hometown of Kent, Ohio.

Pro career

Rogers started his professional MMA career at 1-2 with both losses coming by decision. He followed the slow start to his professional MMA career with 7 consecutive victories, all by first round KO/TKO which included wins in both his Strikeforce and Bellator debuts.

Strikeforce

Rogers made his Strikeforce debut on March 5, 2011 at Strikeforce: Feijao vs. Henderson where he defeated Ian Rammel by TKO in the first round.[4]

Bellator Fighting Championships

On May 21, 2011 it was announced that Rogers will be taking part in the Bellator Season Five Middleweight Tournament which begins on September 17, 2011.[5] Rogers defeated Victor O’Donnell via TKO in the quarterfinal round at Bellator 50. In the semifinal round, Rogers lost to Alexander Shlemenko via TKO in the second round at Bellator 54.

On January 9, 2012 Rogers was announced as the first of eight participants in Bellator’s Season 6 Middleweight Tournament. In the opening round, he faced Vitor Vianna on March 16, 2012 at Bellator 61 and won via KO in the first round. The knockout received incredible media and fan attention and has since had over 400,000 views on YouTube as one of Bellator’s most popular videos in the promotion’s short history.

Rogers was scheduled to face Bruno Santos in the semifinal round of the Middleweight Tournament at Bellator 66. However, on April 16, 2012, it was revealed that Santos had to withdraw due to a shoulder injury and was replaced by Bellator newcomer Andreas Spang.[6] After dominating most of the first two rounds, he was caught by a counter left hook which resulted in a KO loss.
Now Rogers has the opportunity to return and show championship heart in facing gritty Steele who always comes to fight. This will be an important fight for both fighters and will be a very exciting match up

POPULAR BELLATOR MIDDLEWEIGHT BRIAN ROGERS JOINS FUNDAFIGHTER.COM

Fundafighter.com announced Monday that the latest fighter to join the growing fighter fundraising hub is Bellator standout Brian Rogers and that half of the funds raised by his first campaign will go to improving the technological resources at LEAP, the Ohio-based education center for emotionally and behaviorally-challenged youth that the former special education teacher used to teach at before leaving to pursue fighting full time. The other half will go towards offsetting Rogers’ training camp expenses for his Bellator 78 bout at the end of this month in Dayton, Ohio.

Rogers says that the LEAP program is in desperate need of new computers and that he is hopeful that through fan support and FundaFighter, he will be able to provide the school with the necessary funds to purchase new equipment.

“When I worked for the LEAP program they were very supportive of my MMA career, giving me time off for fights and to train. This year, as much as it was a disappointment, I took a step back from my teaching position at LEAP to focus fully on my mixed martial arts career,” Rogers explains. “My former co-workers are still my good friends and I even have one of my training partners who works for the program. I wanted to do something to give back to them and to the kids, which is why I partnered with FundaFighter to start this campaign.”

“[FundaFighter] provides an opportunity for the fans and Backers of fighters they like or respect to truly support them or a charity or cause that’s important to them,” Rogers points out.” “Most fighters don’t get pay-per-view percentages or ticket percentages from the fans, so in this situation the fans can actually really directly support the fighter. FundaFighter is the voice of the fans to the fighter.”

Raising the bar for Backer incentives, “The Professional Predator,” as he has recently been anointed due to his polished look outside the cage and his gentlemanly demeanor with the press, will be offering his number one fan the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to walk him out for his October 26 Bellator bout. The unique fan experience will likely make one lucky supporter the envy of his or her friends.

FundaFighter.com founder Robbie Stein says it was Rogers’ enthusiasm for his fighter crowdfunding model and his dedication to providing his supporters unique, valuable rewards like these that made the partnership happen.

“I’m so happy for Brian to be a part of FundaFighter. He is an amazing fighter and person, and his rewards are incredible. He really gets the concept and we’re confident that his campaign for this very worthwhile cause will be a successful one,” Stein says. “We couldn’t be more excited to have him on board.”

Rogers’ campaign will run from October 1 to December 1, with a goal of raising $4000.

Brian is available for interviews regarding his FAF sponsorship and his Bellator 78 bout

Victer Crenshaw Interview

TA: What made you get into MMA?
VC: “Well, First off I was always interested in MMA. I felt I would be great at it plus after college, there really wasn’t anything after that as far as a wrestling career goes. I seen guys I wrestled with go into MMA, I felt I could excel.
Second, I needed an outlet for the aggression I had growing up through school and college so I felt MMA could be that outlet”.
TA: So Victer, what are your goals in MMA?
VC: Well really I have many goals in mind. My short term goals are to put a string of wins together and win the NAAFS title. Then from there, I’m looking at Bellator, Strike force or which ever comes first and grab titles from there.
My long term goals though are basically win world titles, give back to the people, and really, I just want to be great.
