Brett Rogers said Monday on a call to promote his upcoming fight with Fedor Emelianenko that he's hoping his MMA fame will allow him to become a spokesman for a cause that's important to him: Preventing animal cruelty.
Rogers has filmed the above promo for an anti-dogfighting group, and he said Monday that it's an issue he feels strongly about.
"It's just one of those things I've always wanted to do," Rogers said about filming the public-service announcement. "I'm one of those guys who loves animals. Anything I can do to help, a positive thing for animals, is something that I want to do."
For all of Michael Vick's promises that he's going to become a spokesman for animal welfare groups, I haven't seen him offer up any messages as simple and clear as the one Rogers give in the ad above: "Real men don't let the dogs do their fighting for them." Words to live by.
