If EliteXC spent half of the time and effort into marketing Jake Shields, Eddie Alvarez, or Feijao they'd be just as popular as Kimbo. And they actually can fight.

Honerable mentions to that list are, Robbie Lawler, Frank Shamrock, Antonio Bigfoot Silva, and Fabricio Camones

Rogers isn't going to be a star because he hasn't done anything.
Very true! Even after his stunt he pulled after the last Kimbo fight they aired on CBS still doesnt make him a house hold name. EliteXC is barely surviving off this hype they create around their fighters, as per the UFC has its hype for having great fighters and tons of Fans that know the fighters by past fights, records and camps. So Rogers fighting Kimbo only benefits himself. Nevertheless this is the beginning of the end of EliteXC.. maybe.

Seriously, Rogers is good enough. Screw the hype that he doesn't have. I think that as a striker, he's underrated. He can beat Kimbo in the standup and on the ground. That's good enough for me. Hype Rogers up and flush Kimbo.

lol rogers keeps getting ducked lmao. Its funny the way I see things theres like 3 kimbo fights I really want to see now. Kimbo vs Shamrock to see if ken can pull off a win, kimbo vs rogers just because of all the damn hype around it and kimbo vs thompson the rematch because the first one was so damn controversial.
