Talking Brett Rogers: When I beat Fedor, I値l become the god of MMA

Undefeated Strikeforce heavyweight, Brett Rogers has spoken for the first time since it was announced he would be facing Fedor Emelianenko before the year is out and he’s not just coming to make up the numbers.

Speaking to, Rogers said:

“Oh yeah. I've been watching a handful of his fights, but the ones I'm really going to concentrate on are his last five, because those are the ones that really matter, you know? Going way back in time, those are the ones that he improves his skills. I want to see where he's at right now. So he has some loopholes. When he gets excited that's when can get caught. That's the way I see it, especially if he wants to stand and bang with me. Otherwise, I can see a ground-and-pound game, too. I'm definitely not going to allow him to lead the fight. That's just not happening.”

“Yeah, I'm definitely preparing for it. He loves jiu-jitsu, and I mean, jiu-jitsu is good but you have to catch somebody for that. I've definitely been working on getting out of submissions, and most importantly, standing up. It's tough taking somebody down, and [if] you don't succeed in that, it tires you out. So I'm going to shoot for that and keep my weight on him.”

“I’m going to knock him out. He's going to give me his chin, somehow, someway. He's going to get sloppy with that overhand right that he loves to do or he'll try to shoot in for a takedown, and I'll catch him with either a knee or an uppercut ... something. I'm going to drop him. I want the crowd to go (gasp). I want to get that reaction out of people. So I can't wait.”
“I'm God then. I'm the God of MMA. I'll become the God of MMA, right? Isn't that how it goes? I'm the soul snatcher; I'm the grim. I'll take all his wins and put them under my belt, and then everybody can just hush up.”

Rogers also took aim at fellow Minnesota native and UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar. Asked if he agrees that Fedor is ducking the best competition in the world by not joining the UFC:

“No. Fedor can fight whoever he wants, the way I see it. I'm pretty sure it was a different situation with the UFC versus Strikeforce. Coming to Strikeforce, you know, was definitely a little different swing, I guess you can say. But as far as the heavyweights over there, I mean, what heavyweight over there is so special besides -- who? -- Brock [Lesnar]. Everybody compares Brock as if he is the second-best heavyweight in the world, and I see different, and Brock is from my hometown. So competition-wise it's no different.”

When asked if he felt Brock Lesnar was maybe over rated, Rogers said:

“Yeah. Yeah, actually, I do. Brock is overrated. I mean, look at how many fights he's had; he's had a handful fights. He's only showcased that he's just a wrestler and a ground-and-pounder. I mean, he hasn't fought anybody the same size as him. So it's going to get to that point when that happens it really is going to showcase Brock's talent.”

The event has been rumoured to be taking place in Roger’s hometown of Minnesota which would naturally give “The Grim” a great lift ahead of the biggest fight he has ever been in.

Has brett rodgers been watching the highlander or something? Its almost as if he thinks that if he beats fedor bolts of lightning will strike him and give him all of fedors wins and the special powers of fedor and his victims

的f he wants to leave the division, leave the sport, who cares, Beat it, nobody tunes in to watch him anyways, and his little fake 選 don稚 speak English.

good article.. but I think Rogers is a bit too cocky.. against Fedor you get woken up with smelling salts if your too cocky.. after reading this my thoughts on his chances drop a touch. He seems as if he is going to rely on Fedor to make a mistake.. Well anyone can beat anyone if they make a mistake AND you can actually capitalize on it.

I agree that he is too Cocky. He thinks Brock is overrated, as well as Randy and Mir. I would like to see him against either of those guys. He would have to KO them on the way in just like he would with Brock, or they would take him down and have their way with him.

I'm not going to go as far as saying that he has no ground game, but I would never assume that his ground game is comparable or superior to Mir or Randy.

He might want to be very careful. I think he has a legitimate shot of catching Fedor, but I would never go so far as to think that he is a superior fighter than brock, Mir, Randy, Fedor, Nog... Just my opinion.

Among Hardcore MMA fans, it will be a shot to the boys. Fedor has more people hanging off his nuts (deservedly) and a loss to a guy this green will be a huge blow.

If Rogers were to go out there and catch him with a solid shot very early in the fight, it probably wouldn't be a big deal because MMA is an "every given Saturday" kind of sport.

However, were Rogers to go out there and outstrike Fedor, shrug off any shots fedor lands on him, block any takedown attempts, it would probably hurt the sport pretty bad. The #1 guy should never be made to look a fool by a new guy. Not like that.

A loss in any way whatsoever, will give ammo to the MMA haters. I can read the hater headlines now, "MMA God beaten by a nobody, how can the sport compete with boxing?" (I don't think he is a nobody, but the writers would make him out to be one).

Personally, I wouldn't mind Fedor losing, simply to humble M-1 (and hurt the org), and to give Fedor a reason to get fired up. I have been getting the feeling, lately, that he just doesn't have that drive because he has been winning so easily. Kind of like A. Silva.

A Great fighter, yes

The god of MMA? no.. i dont think so.

Fedor has to be beat sometime, and if Rogers beats him which is possible it will up his stock but not make him a "god"

Hes talking it up real quick and hes setting himself up for a nice fall if he loses.

The last guy who said he's gonna knockout Fedor end up face first on the canvas (Andre Arlovski). The last guy who said his size would make the difference ends out tapping out (Tim Silva). It will be Fedor by submission.
