According to a report filed by the Apple Valley Patch, former Strikeforce heavyweight title contender Brett Rogers plead guilty Thursday to one count of third-degree assault in relation to his June arrest stemming from a domestic disturbance at his home.

On June 29, Rogers was arrested on charges of third-degree assault, stalking, domestic assault by strangulation and endangerment of a child. Rogers allegedly engaged in an altercation with his wife that turned violent outside a home in the Minneapolis suburb of Apple Valley, Minn.

As part of his plea, Rogers will reportedly have the remaining charges dropped. The fighter will be sentenced on Nov. 30. The Apple Valley report states that jail time is a possibility.

“Overall, Brett and I are pleased with the outcome,” Rogers’ attorney, Murad Mohammed, told the Apple Valley Patch. “I think it’s important for everyone, especially Brett’s wife and family, to know that Brett has taken ownership for everything that’s happened. It’s an unfortunate situation for the family, and the end result is Brett not having a felony conviction, resulting in him returning to his family and continuing to fight.”

Though he was released from his Strikeforce contract shortly after his arrest, Rogers has his next fight scheduled with Titan Fighting Championships on Sept. 23. Known for his heavy hands, Rogers, 30, has lost three of his last four bouts following a perfect 10-0 start to his career.

After suffering consecutive losses to Fedor Emelianenko and Alistair Overeem, the former Sam's Club employee rebounded with a decision win over journeyman Ruben Villareal. Most recently, “The Grimm” was eliminated from the Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix by onetime UFC champion Josh Barnett. “The Warmaster” dominated Rogers from start to finish, choking Rogers out with an arm-triangle on June 18, less than two weeks prior to Rogers’ arrest.
