Thanks to Toxic for the Awesome Sig!

Even if the whole world is against you, one thing will never let you down. That thing is beer.

I don't think this event could get any better than being on CBS!

It really depends on how he wins, and I think that matters in everyone's mind.

This is a guy who just finished Arlovski, a top ten heavyweight (even in the wake of that loss) in under thirty seconds.

If he stops Fedor, if he does it quickly and decisively and in the first round, it's gonna be hard to argue that he's not a top five heavyweight. Two wins over two decidedly top ten heavyweights, beating them both in the striking, finishing both of them, definitely codifies his position as a top striker.

If he wins a tight decision (which seems unlikely), then he may not break the top five. Still, a win over Fedor, as a prohibitive underdog, would mean a lot.

That said, the odds are not with Brett going into this fight.

Talking Odds

That they are not. But thats ok cause after Fedor wipes the mat with Rogers, he is going to wipe the mat with Overeem!
