Brett Rogers Weighs In On Fighting Overeem and Werdum.......


Brett gives us quick thoughts on his competitors in the HW division.

Personally I think he needs a couple of more fights under his belt before taking on these dangerous veterans.

Quote:
"All I know is (Werdum) loves to stay on the ground. He’ll stand up and try to pretend like he want(s) to fight. As soon as someone hit him- light- he’s gonna want to take you down … If I know for a fact that’s his "A" game down there, I’m not going to want to stay down there and play with him. And I consider myself a ‘C’ if anything on the ground … But I would go down there and lay on top of him. I’ll lay on top of him and bang with him. But I’m definitely not going to try to play that jiu-jitsu game off my back with him. And with Overeem, with him I think it would be a little more exciting because he wants to stand with me. He’s kind of a fast spunky kind of dude, that’s what I’ve been seeing off of his videos. He’s a dangerous fighter on the ground (in that) he can fight off of his back, too, so I ain’t gonna sleep on him when it comes to that. But he’s definitely going to have some problems with the weight. He’s gotta pump it up a little bit or I’ll lay on his ass, put that weight on him, tire him out."

I don't know if I want to see him fight any of these guys yet. Definitely down the road. Rogers/Overeem looks like it would be a fun one.

I want to be a dick, but he did come off as respectful....I'm going to be a dick anyway. He needs to actually beat a legitimate fighter before he starts talking about Overeem or Werdum. He will be exposed soon enough, because his stand-up honestly isn't so good and he's just hyping himself up. Overeem would knock him out in under 2 minutes no question. If he wants to fight someone in his league, he should look more towards Al-turk.

As of right now.. Alister would run through anyone strikeforce has with ease.

I think that with him and Fabricio it is a matter of who fights the smarter fight.

Either one of these two could finish the other IMO.
