Kharitnovov (Spoilers)
 

I knew the sleeping giant would wake up here... he crushed Arlovski. Brutal power and I can honestly see him getting past Rogers or Barnett.

Does anybody else see him making it to the finals?

Depends.

I think Barnett handles him, but there's so many questions with him you'll never know if he won't get replaced by an alt.

In that case, Sergei should beat any alternate or Bum Rogers and definitely make the finals.

He'd lose to Overeem the second time around. Barnett would beat em.

He looked good!

I wouldn't call Rogers a bum. He was finishing everybody until he bumped into Ubereem and Fedor.... it's not like those two are cans...

The only alternate I see giving Sergi fits is Del Rosario.

I don't see Barnett getting past him tbh.

He is going to get so whooped by Barnett, first in the Stand up and then ten times worse when Barnett takes him to the ground and makes his Sambo squeal!

I think Barnett should win but I think its a very close fight.

You've obviously never seen the type of fighters the tire changer was fighting early in his career.

Hell, is best non-Arshotsky blitz KO win is against mediocre 205lb Abongo Humphrey, a fight in which he gassed in, and had trouble putting Abongo away despite him being 5 or 6 inches shorter and 50lbs lighter.

Bum Rogers is the biggest hype job ever. Even moreso than Houston Alexander. At least Houston wasn't ranked in the top 10.

Rogers' resume largely consists of hillbilly truckers that were just happening to stop at a rest stop, and decided to take their wifebeater, grab some shorts and step into the cage. And he nearly lost to one of them, in Warpath. :laugh:

No bullshit.

Fighting your way up is a crime? As is changing tires to feed your family?

Abongo came into that fight as an undefeated HW with more muscle and heavier hands due to it.

And Abongo is notoriously hard to put away. He's taken so many huge shots and walked right through them...

As a matter of fact Brett Rogers is the only fighter to put Abongo away with strikes.

Last I checked he beat Warpath by unanimous decision. Not split.

All these fights prove is that Brett started from the bottom and worked his way up. How does that make him a bum??

If he was a bum he would have lost to the "truckers" you are pointing at. On the contrary he's only lost to Fedor and Overeem. And if he lands one of those brickhouses on Barnetts chin Josh is in a world of trouble.

Lol im stupid confident in Barnett and i think he is literally going to walk through Kharitnovo with no problems

But i think he is going to have a really hard time with Overeem, and i wouldn't be shocked if he beat Overeem but i see Overeem landing to many devastating knees and punches, and mostly i see him Stuffing Barnetts TD's, and thats the biggest reason i think he will win
