If Rogers beat Fedor?

Where are you going to rank Brett Rogers among the top ten heavyweights in the world if he is able to pull off the upset of the century over Fedor? Would a win over the consensus number one heavyweight in the world put him in the top spot? In my opinion it would make him at the very least fourth behind lesnar, Nog, and Barnett.

Definitely not #1, probably not top 5 in my rankings. Any fighter can be anyone on a given date. The thing that makes fighters so great is consistency, especially when it comes to top guys. Rogers beating Fedor would be huge, but to be in the top 5 he needs to consistently beat top guys. I know he is 11-0, but most of his wins hold little value. If he beats Fedor, then beats Cain and Gonzaga, then he would definitely be top 2.

He did just beat arlovski, which despit what peoples opinions may be, is still one of the most talented heavyweights on the planet. That is why i would rank him so high, because of two giant wins right in a row.

I think Rogers should shoot into the top 5 for sure. he would be 11-0, with wins over both Arlovski AND, the greatest fighter ever, Fedor. It would be hard to not put him in the top 5, seriously.

I stop watching MMA and move on to watching water polo.

Honestly... I'd put him at number 1 if he knocks Fedor out in the first round. I mean, cmon, what more do you want? He has destroyed EVERYONE he's faced, and if you add Fedor to that, he's clearly numero uno.

People have a hard time giving guys like Rogers respect because he finishes his opponents so fast. Same with Carwin.

Once he comes to the UFC, then he can be put in the top 5. Alot of people look good outside the UFC, and once they come, not so much.

If he could pull that off then definitely ranked near the top.


Thanks to Toxic for the Awesome Sig!

well if u herd the sayin when pigs can fly that how i see brett chances of winning this fight. But if some how he does manage to pull off a mircle he should be rated number 1. Serously how could u not if he manages to beat fedor who is the michael jordan of fighters. Better question is if fedor loses when does he drop in the ranking?

Unhappy Fedor's Drop

If Fedor lost to Rogers, he would probably drop in the rankings as soon as the updated rankings came out. Which would probably come out the next week!
