It's funny how our own prejudices color our perceptions.

I liked josh going in so I found it entertaining as hell.

Either way, His recognition factor in the U.S. went way up.

Let's hope Josh doesn't pop for something after this fight!
lol, I noticed that too. Rogers tapped before the sub was even properly in place. Anyway, no surprise with this fight except that it took that long. I really didn't think Rogers would get out of the first round.

Rogers is teh Bum.

Having said that, I feel for him. He was hyped up and paid well after the Arlovski fight. Matched up with Fedor. He would have been imagining his future is sorted. He bought a new house. A new car no doubt... then, the reality hits. He doesn't have a well paid future in MMA. This wasn't the beginning of a new dawn. His 15 minutes are up. Back to normality. Very depressing.

I found it ironic Barnett gave that ridiculous speech after without blathering on about God like so many tiresome fighters do. I always hate it when guys do that, but if anyone should be doing it, it's Barnett.

Barnett should fall to his knees weeping with gratitude. This fight was such a gift for him. It will revive his career for at least a little while, and all he had to do was beat a can like Rogers.

On the plus side, Rogers can just disappear now, and we won't ever have to listen to anyone pretend he is a legit top HW.

Well.....i think a lot of people would pay some good money to see him KTFO Arlovski again

But, you're right.

He was hyped wasaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay yoo much, when the reality was/is...he isn't a MMA fighter, just a guy who can punch hard.

B and C levels promotions will have him though.

BELIEVE!

Brett Rogers is the ultimate can. Sometimes I wonder if he actually trains for his fights.

If your gonna take the mic, at least be able to string 5 sentences together, without wandering off down some poorly worded tangent that actually gets less interesting, and less intelligible, as it reaches its 'climax'.

Neither a Barnett lover or hater, but that was an embarrassing attempt at a rabble rousing, crowd stirring WWE-esque promo.
