Brett Rogers: "I'm Going To Knock Fedor Out"

http://www.mmaweekly.com/absolutenm/...=9503&zoneid=2

Slated to be Fedor Emelianenko's first opponent in the Strikeforce promotion, undefeated heavyweight Brett Rogers plans to knock out the top ranked Russian.

"I'm going out there to knock Fedor out. I'm going out there to knock him out just like Arlovski. It ain't going to be no different," Rogers told Tapout Radio earlier this week.

"The way I see it, he's not going to want to stand with me. He's going to want to take me down and play the little ground and pound game because he knows damn well my hands are ferocious and he's not going to be able to handle my power. It's not going to happen."

Questioned how his ground game matches up against the Russian's, Rogers said, "If he gets lucky and takes me down, because I'm not an easy guy to take down, I'm a stand-up fighter, so I train real hard on standing up, but if he succeeds, I'm cool. I'm cool with it. I'm a patient guy. I'm just going to hold him and get back up and make him play my game, and he's going to have to try all over again."

The bout has been agreed to, but no date has been set. "They just told me to be ready by October or November," said the 28-year-old fighter.

"There's a couple of situations with the UFC. They don't want to schedule a show on the same day as one of their shows."

Sounds like he's so insecure about himself he's doing everything he can to convince himself that he can win.

Fedor is gonna make Rogers look like a 12 year old tomboy when they fight.

Actually he sounds confident which is not a bad thing. Do you want him to say "Oh shit! Fedor's gonna kill me".

I am rooting for Brett Mr. Rogers to pull off the upset. HOwever if my knowledge of history is correct black american fighters do not do well with Russian fighters. Apollo Creed was actually killed by Ivan Drago. Not just beaten but killed.

No, but I'm sure that you would want us to make that statement so you could argue with people even more than you normally do.

Here does this help.... Rogers should just not fight because he knows how badly Fedor is going to beat him. I don't like Rogers. I like UFC. I like the stand up game. What is BJJ? People only thing Rogers will win because he is black. Fedor isn't even that good. You got enough to work with there sweetheart?

Mr Cornbread, I dont argue or pick fights with you. You're actually one of my favourite posters on here. Did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed or something? Im your friend remember that...

But I do hate the way people are treating Rogers.

This interview now officially makes me know he will lose to Fedor, hoping not to get taken down, and then getting up.....Like how fedor is gonna let you.....Me no think so, he caught Andrei quick out the gate he isnt gonna do that agasinst Fedor, plus had he not done that to Andrei, he wouldnt be in this fight.....

I dont wanna say lucky but he is where he is now cuz of flash K/O of a guy that for some freakin eason wont keep his hands up to protect his chin in Andrei......

Confident would be something like "I'm training my hardest and I think I have a shot at beating Fedor."

What he's doing is saying crap like "I'll become god when I beat Fedor", "I'm gonna expose his sloppy striking", "I'm so much bigger/stronger than Fedor", "I WILL KNOCK HIM OUT!!".

It sounds like he's taking Fedor lightly and that whenever Fedor catches him with a flurry, it will give him a reality check and he will be scared of getting hit again.
