...Right after Rogers put Arlovski asleep. Fedor was asked about AA's performance. Fedor stated "Andre didn't use the right strategy". Fedor has been in there with top strikers. He will avoid getting caught by not squaring up with Brett like AA did and allowing him to get off first.
...Fedor's timing, superb balance, agility, great footwork & unmatch mental game will be the difference maker. If Rogers charges in like he did against AA throwing massive hooks, I see Fedor taking him down and finishing him with ground & pound or most likely a quick submission. Fedor has proven time & time again, you make 1 mistake, he will capitalize on it...

This fight, to me, looks like a desperation measure by Strikeforce to try to put the biggest fight they possibly can. So they can start contending with the UFC. They're basically taking their two biggest (casual name value) fighters and putting them together. This fight is lose-lose to me.

While they may be able to get a few cheap bucks, this fight does nothing to legitimize Fedor's #1 status. He will only drop down the ranks (Since he's avoided the UFC's Heavyweight division Which contains most of the top 10) Even worse, if by some fluke KO Rogers does manage to win, this will drop Fedor's status immeasurably and we will most likely never hear the end of it from Dana White. At that rate, we'll never see Fedor in the UFC and Rogers will somehow be this legit fighter who has shown nothing but freak KO power if a fight doesn't go more than 3 minutes.

I don't like it, I don't like it one bit.

You're actually right on the money. Rogers is great on the feet, arguably better than Fedor, and a question mark on the ground. A
Likely Fedor has a better ground game? If "likely" means 100% guarunteed then yes, it is likely. Rogers is not a question mark on the ground. If he had anything at all we'd know it by now. They (fighters/promoters) inevitably go out of their way to try and make fighters not seem one dimensional. The fact that we haven't heard anything about Rogers ground game means he doesn't have one. This will be over in seconds if Fedor decides to take it down.

Standing Fedor still has an advantage, just not as big as on the ground. Rogers striking is sloppy, he has nothing going for him except some size, power and getting matched up against complete and utter cans other than AA who he Matt Serra'ed. AA wins that fight most of the time and Fedor will smash Rogers so easily it won't be funny.

Actually it will be funny.
