I'd like to see Rogers and Dave "Peewee" Herman get it on.

Either that or Paul Buentello.

I would love to see him in the UFC, or against top guys in strikeforce or Affliction.

Id love to see Monson school Rogers on the ground, Monson is on a good streak and I think should rightfully be in the top 10, Rogers has been heavily criticized for his unseen ground game, its a great match up IMO.

Once again i state that the criticizim of Roger's ground game is unfounded. How can you talk smack about something you have never seen? Im sure that everyone is probably right in assuming that rogers doesnt have much of a ground game, but until this is proven it is all speculation.

I agree, great point. Of his 10 wins, only 2 of the fights have gone past the 2nd round, Humphrey and Strong.

Of Rogers' ground game, would you approve of "invisible," "not applicable for discussion," or "for training purposes only?"

I don't get why we can't make assumptions as you did in your retort?

My point is that they are nothing but assumptions. There isnt really a good gauge for the level of his ground game at this point. I dont train with the guy and I dont know anybody who does, so im not going to count out his ground game until I see it.

I take it, Silva vs Rogers is the winner with few runner-ups?

Rogers is good. But Bigfoot is an absolute beast. He'd run right through Rogers.
