Brett Rogers Has The Worst Fedor Strategy Yet
 
Quote:

Much like Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida, Fedor Emelianenko has an uncanny ability to evoke horrible game plans from the people he fights. Mostly it's because, when you fight someone who seems damn near unbeatable at the time, you have to come up with some way of convincing yourself that you've found the one brilliant approach that everyone else missed. The more people/brilliant approaches he's already destroyed, the fewer there are still available. And the good ones tend to go quickly, leaving guys like Brett Rogers to rely on woefully inept plans like this:

“There’s loopholes in everybody’s game, and in his game, the way I see it, he can sometimes get a little sloppy. He is a patient guy, but when he feels that he has to give, he kind of rushes it a little bit. Just on that, I can kinda set him up for a knockout just by faking an injury or something, just jump in and out his offense a little more than not. Hit and move. Hit and move.”

Yeah, you read that right. "The Grimm" plans to beat the world's best heavyweight in part by faking an injury. And he just announced it to the entire English-speaking world, at least one member of which probably knows enough Russian to pass the word on to Fedor. Keep an eye on those betting odds. Something tells me that the +475 line on Rogers is about to change.

The only reasonable explanation here is that Rogers is screwing with us. He's using a little misdirection, trying to lure Fedor into a trap. There's just no way he really believes that the key to knocking out Fedor is to pretend to be hurt. That isn't possible. You know how I know that isn't possible? Because no one is that dumb. No one.

Well played, Brett. You almost had me. Faking an injury. You crazy guy. Now seriously, what's the plan? Before you answer, let me just say that if you even look like you're about to say something about pretending to have the flu, I'm walking out of here and never coming back.

I guess its as good of a strategy as any against Fedor.

I think rogers might be thinking of a karatekid style KO

His style is basically losing in the most humiliating way possible. I applaud his efforts.

No, he IS that dumb. He's a ******* moron. With a fifth grade education. Fedor will kill him in seconds.

rogers can win off of facial acne alone, fedor needs to watch out for that.

My game plan would be to press him against the cage and use foot stomps until Fedor can't walk anymore, then I would kick his legs until he quits. What? No one ever tried that, what else would you do?

TheMicrowave 09-08-2009 02:51 PM

Pressing him against the ropes isn't a bad idea. But he has a significant reach advantage so I think he should do what Arlovski was doing before he came flying in with his arms to his side. Stay back, box him with jabs and methodically work some other small combos off the jab. Keep Fedor from taking the fight to the ground. A boring and strategic way to win, but that's the blueprint for Rogers. If he's to win, it ain't gonna be by rushing in like he did with Arlovski.

Fedor will win this fight easily.

Does anyone else think this fight is going to be liek Fedor vs Zulu, where he just smacks him with a big punch and finishes him right off the hop, like thats totally what I see.

...I think Fedor will win pretty easily but he won't pull a Zulu on Rogers. If Fedor does, that would send shockwaves through the MMA world faster than a Santa Ana driven brush fire...

yes, or like with big Tim but with hammer fist instead of choke.
