Former Strikeforce heavyweight Brett Rogers claims he is innocent of all charges stemming from a June 28 arrest in Apple Valley, Minn.
"As in all criminal matters, Mr. Rogers is presumed innocent until and if he is proven guilty," the statement from Rogers' legal counsel Mohammad & Jaafar-Mohammad, LLC read. "Mr. Rogers asserts his innocence in this matter and is confident that the facts of what happened will vindicate his assertion of innocence.
"Mr. Rogers has never been charged with any domestic related incidents or assault offenses. He is a caring and loving husband and father that has recently found success as a heavyweight mixed martial arts fighter. We urge all media and interested individuals to withhold judgment as to what occurred during this incident."
Rogers bonded out of custody and will return to court for an omnibus hearing on July 25.
