Multiple sources, including MMAJunkie and FiveOuncesofPain, are reporting that Brett Rogers has been “contacted” by Affliction regarding a possible bout with Josh Barnett on January 24th’s “Day of Reckoning” card at Honda Center in Anaheim, CA.
Rogers is most known for his three impressive wins in the now bankrupt EliteXC as well as calling out Kimbo Slice at a post-fight press conference.
Many believed that Rogers was next in line to fight Slice if Slice had beaten Seth Petruzelli. Instead Rogers finds himself looking for another promotion to work with.
Barnett currently has no opponents for “Day of Reckoning” after being pulled out of the main event when Fedor Emelianenko returned to the card.
