Donate to Bellator fighter Brian Rogers’ Fund a Fighter campaign, see your name on TV


Bellator fighter Brian Rogers would like your help. He is fighting at Bellator 78 on Oct. 26, and is running a fun contest on Fund A Fighter, a website that encourages fans to make donations large and small to a fighter's camp. In return, fighters give away merchandise, fight experiences and other cool stuff.

Rogers is adding a twist to his campaign. Half of the money raised through his campaign will go to Leap, a special education program Rogers used to work for. He recently quit his job as a special education teacher to focus on fighting full-time, and talks about what more technology for the students would do here:

The biggest donor over the course of this week will get the chance to have his or her name written on Rogers' sponsor banner. The banners are unrolled during a fighter's introduction, and it would be really fun to see a Cagereader's name on that banner.

Here's what to do: go to and make a donation for Rogers' campaign. He has a ton of goodies listed for donors, so even if you can't make a huge donation, a small one can still help Rogers and Leap.
