Brett Rogers Fighting in Canada Next
W1 has signed Brett Rogers to fight Oct 23. Bad opponent though.


Brett Rogers To Headline W1 Halifax
By: Keith Grienke
Brett Rogers (10-2) is coming to W1. According to the W1 web site, the man who came close to finishing Fedor Emelianenko in the first round will fight on the October 23 W1 card in Halifax.
Rogers, who has lost two straight to Alistair Overeem and Fedor, will face journeyman Ruben Villareal (18-18-3) at the event. Villareal should not post much of a threat for Rogers who looks to get back to his previous winning ways.
Also on the card are TUF 11′s Jamie Yager, Roger Hollett, Sean Pierson, and the return of Kyle Sandford and Chad Cox to competition.

Good card!

Brett Rogets by (T)KO. At least his going to get back to the winning side. His had a tough break, first fighting Fedor and then Overeem.

Fighting two of the top guys in the world is not a tough break. Fighting the top guys in the world is called trying to climb the ranking ladder. The only guy he successfully beat to earn him any kind've ranking was Arlovski who has gone completely downhill since then. But yeah he is finally getting a rebound match that he can potentially get back into the win collum with!:thumbsup:

Or he can lose and be permanently buried with no hope of ever seeing the limelight again.

I'm not totally sure Carwin will become that less known. He has the drive to rebound and I don't think his name has been too tarnished because of that whole roid thing!:)

Carwin is mad old, on roids and cant last a round.

i dont see him improving that much or really being that much better than Rogers.

kantowrestler 09-11-2010 03:42 PM

Yeah, but Carwin actually has wrestling experience. Rogers doesn't have any wrestling experience whatsoever!:thumb02:

E Lit Er Ate 09-11-2010 03:52 PM

u got me there.

Carwin doesnt use his wrestling often enough for it to matter imo

if he fought Rogers, he would stand toe to toe with him, like he does everybody else.

his wrestling also isnt great for MMA, he isnt fast or versatile.

No, but remember he almost finished Brock Lesnar. I really don't think he is going to be given his walking papers by Dana White anytime soon unless he looses his next fight or two!:thumbsup:
