5 top 10 ufc fighters, which Rogers posseses more of a threat to Fedor

Im sure this will bring up alot of Debate, but I truly beleive
Rogers posseses more of the threat to Fedor than these fighters, simply based on their fighting styles. I am not saying Rogers is better than these Fighters

1. Randy Couture- Is smaller than Fedor, and alot like many people that Fedor has dominated before, Coleman, Herring, ect.

2. Nog - We all know the story

3. Congo - No ground game, or wrestling, Striking abilities that are no greater than any striker Fedor has already outstruck

4. Velasquez - Does not have as great of striking as Rogers, and in the majority of his ufc wins he only utilizes wrestling, and refuses to sink in the hooks, or go for a submission, fedor would easily roll into gaurd and work his Magic.

5. Frank Mir - Does not posses a stiking advantage, no size advantage, Jujitsu nothing Fedor couldnt handle.

Now on the other hand, Rogers posseses a very serios striking advantage, and deffinatley has the ability to knock fedor out. Also has a very large Size atvantage, witch will nullify alot of Fedors wrestling and jujitsu. ALso Rogers is undefeated, therefore his weeknesses havent been completley exposed. The other fighters I have listed arent as threatening to Fedor as Rogers.
Im not saying that im putting money on Rogers, or that im a fan of his, Im simply just giving food for thought on this fight.

i agree tbh, i think they would all probably beat rogers sept maybe congo but they dont got those heavy hands, well maybe congo does but his pitiful ground game kinda cancels out that advantage

I disagree about Mir, fact is that Mir is one of the better BJJ guys in the HW division and has a very aggressive BJJ style, while also possesing some very solid striking while not an elite level striker, Mir is more than Competent wherever the fight goes and also has the ability to maintain his composure well when in trouble. I think Mir is alot better than you give him credit for.

He possesses a big threat because Fedor doesn't have many holes so the only people who pose great threats are the ones who have the ability to knock him out.

Interesting thread. I think randy could have back in the day a bit. Age is a factor there. I agree with all the other points. The one massive downfall i see in Roger's is he just doesn't have enough ecperiance. Would a more experienced roger's been more aggressive? Pushed the pace a bit more? And possibly caught fedor? I think it is one thing Roger's needs.
