I have to fully agree since beating someone who is considered the number one pound for pound fighter, and beating Arlovski and as you said being undefeated he will definitely be ranked among the top 5 easily.

I would have to disagree. I mean Fedor is considered by many many people as the number one fighter in the world and he's never fought in the UFC. I love the UFC but if someone isn't fighting for them, that doesn't mean they aren't among the best in the world.

Thumbs up Outside the UFC

I would have to agree that a fighter doesn't have to fight for the UFC in order to be considered good! Besides Rogers and Fedor, look at Jake Shields, Andrei Arlovski, Antonio Rogerio Noguiera, Robby Lawler, Shinya Aoki, and Joe Warren. These guys are all fighting outside the UFC(with the exception of Little Nog) and are considered great fighters! If that isn't proof enough, I don't know what is!

I think he'd be in top 5. An impartial ranking would probably have him in top3 (Arlovski and (maybe) Fedor by KO). He would have to be ranked higher than any UFC non-champ.

Then he'd start calling out erebody...Lesnar, Kimbo (again), A. Silva, Dana White.

Talking Calling People Out

Dude, Rogers was calling out Kimbo went they were in EliteXC together. If things had gone long enough they would've faced each other!

I loved it when he did this. He was a "nobody" and calling out the face of the EliteXC org. No one else with a serious chance of fighting him did this (Liddell and Couture but doesn't really count).

Thumbs down Rogers VS Kimbo

Well I don't think he was too happy when EliteXC matched the guy he beat against the guy he wanted a crack at!

Thankfully for Rogers, things have changed. His organization is a better one than EliteXC (who were only trying to get Kimbo bums to drum up business) and the fact that he is a known entity right now. I don't have a favority in the Rogers v. Fedor fight but I hope for both that it is a sick fight.
