This fight proves nothing for Fedor what so ever and is pointless for him.
Thats kinda not fair what if Rogers Ko's Couture would that mean that Couture's legacy was worthless till that point.

After Fedor crushes him, we might get Fedor vs. Overeem next.

Risky fight, though, as Rogers has hands and power and all it really takes is 1 punch to down "The Last Emperor" if it connects properly.

Atleast they gave him somebody with a punchers chance of beating him, compared to Overeem and Werdums no chance.

Rogers is not ready for this fight and I guess we are finally going to get see his ground game if he has one. Even if he does I think he gets finished on the ground within 2 minutes.

Its kind of sad that they use this fight to hype up a title fight for Fedor against a guy he will absolutley murder for the belt. Man I hate how Fedor went to strikeforce. There really isnt any big competition for him here. Rogers fist is the only slim chance they have.

Meh. This one will be a mirror image of the goodridge fight me thinks. Another 1 rounder to the books. Has rogers ever been past the first in any of his fights?

Sure Rogers has one punch KO power, but so does various fighters Fedor has fought and still beaten. No big deal.

Fedor by sub.

I'm assuming your old enough to realize by now that life isn't fair, Couture built his legacy fighting in front of casual fans who love and respect him, Fedor built his fighting in front of fans in Japan and to the casual fan he is still but a myth who has yet to prove himself. Is it fair? No, Is it realistic? You bet.
