Yeah, he has a great story about how he was adopted and cared for by his high school English teacher though. He had it rough as a kid. Poor little guy. Of course he's all grown up and now and has a great story to tell the ladies.

Yes, what a story. I saw this last week when it was originally aired (never heard of Bellator before).

His upbringing was awful yet he rose above it and has excelled while others in the same position spiral down into self-destruction or worse. Roger got choked up while talking about his teacher.

He must have some real strength of character and his teacher is simply wonderful.

No...its just your ignorance over the fact that a good majority of fighters come from broken homes and damaged youths...and as I hear about them, I announce them because I believe they should be heard.

1. What's your point?
2. Who cares?
3. Prove it. Cite your source.


I don't really care if you announce it or not.. it's a free country... well mine is anyway. I just made a comment...
