This fight proves nothing for Fedor what so ever and is pointless for him.
No No No Its his great management trying to maintain his legacy, id give Rogers a 5% chance to win this. But I do agree with you! Its just ridiculous to me.

See, I don't get this, why would they not put Overeem vs Rogers first...besides the fact that Fedor will bring in more viewers...oh I get it.

I would find it funny if Rogers won. I like Fedor and all, but after the whole "Co-promotion" crap, it would be funny to see his stock plummet by losing to Rogers.

It isn't out of the question that Rogers could catch him and drop him, however it is far more likely that Fedor will pick him apart and finish it by TKO in rnds 1 or 2.

Oh well, at least Fedor fans can say Fedor just destroyed a guy who was undefeated.
Couldn't you say the same for Carwin?


I mean, let's be honest, Strikeforce doesn't have as many pieces to run with and I think Brett Rogers is a good fighter. I don't think he stands a chance in hell, but he's good.

I don't know. Fedor isn't Arlovski or Mirko. He's got a chin so I could see it taking two punches at the least to finish off Fedor.

Nog had chin once upon a time to.

How are they looking out for Fedor? Who do you want him to fight Werdum? Overeem? Fedor is my favorite fighter and Ill tell you that I am much more afraid of him losing to Rogers than either of those two.

People always say he should fight Alistair because hes the champ but the truth is that Overeem is a shitty fighter especially at HW and especially compared to Fedor. Overeems a mediocre LHW at best which is where he used to always fight. At least Rogers has a size advantage and is a big strong KO guy and Ill tell you right now a KO is whats gonna need to happen for any of the Strikeforce guys to beat Fedor

Yah but there careers have been totally diferrent. Nog has probably took more big shots to the head than any other elite fighter out there, thats why he was so good you couldnt finish him. Eventually that is going to catch up to you though. Like I think Fedor has hit Nog more times than he has been hit in his career.

I used to get nervous before Fedor fights just in case he would lose, because you know that he is better than the guy hes fighting, like nobody can think Rogers is better than him but we all know Rogers has that punchers chance and anything can happen in this sport. Either way I see Fedor by armbar or vicious GnP or RNC or KO standing or Kimura in the first. Each one has an equal chance why not pick them all.
