Who's beating Rodgers in the UFC?

And who is he losing to?

I'm speaking of Brett Rogers, by the way.

Wish I could help you out; can you be a little more specific as to what you're asking?

There is no "Rodgers" in the UFC.

If you mean Brett Rogers, then the answer is every Heavyweight in the UFC Except I could see Struve getting bounced around by him.

Precisely. Anyone....ANYONE with a ground game will beat Rogers. I have been saying this for a bit, he has minimal talent and is lucky that all his opponents want to stand with him. Am I denying his KO power? No ******* way, but when you get MMA (MIXED martial arts) guys against him, he will lose. As soon as he faces someone with a ground game (which he will get soon, since he's "making his way to the top" ) he will lose. He is nothing special. He's a brawler that has been lucky with his opponents. Take him down, and if he has something slightly resembling a guard, I will be impressed. Until then, he's just another money maker.

Yeah, the one thing he does have going for him is Size. He apparently cuts from 285, although im sure if he just ate properly he wouldn't have to cut.

Im still out on rogers. I want to see him on the ground before i say he has no ground game.I can say that any guy without some great wrestling and subs/sub defense is gonna struggle in the ufc heavyweight division. Cain, Carwin, Randy, and Brock are all great wrestlers. Mir and Nog have some of the best heavyweight jiu jitsu out there. Im sure Rogers could do okay against some of the ufc heavyweights, but you have to be pretty well rounded to hang with the top guys nowadays. But who knows, he could have gread tdd and a top knotch guard, i have not seen him on the ground yet (i have also only seen like two of his fights).

I think he might have a chance against Kongo, for the sole reason that Kongo will stand and trade with him. Any HW that will stand and trade with him, he has a definite chance at defeating due to his extreme KO power.

Brett has some talent and heavy hands. I think he could do well agianst Kongo, or HW's on the lower end of the divison. I dont think hes ready for Brock, Mir, Carwin, Nog or Gonzales yet.

I didn't notice this before, but from your post, I thinks you are a NEWB! I never call people out (I always do) but honestly, he has been against people that are willing to strike with him. He may have a good career in K-1 baahahahahhahaha) but he doesn't have shit. I am waiting for the day when a low level or medium level grappler submits him. You can't possibly think he's up with the best....yeah he knocked out Arlovski, but he hasn't been himself since he lost again Fedor. To be honest, he was always a stand up fighter, but Timmy against Rogers (Rodgers?) and he would probably lose to. This isn't a ******* stand up sport, I SWEAR TO YOU, I SWEAR ON MY ******* LIFE, that any good grapperler that utilizes their ground game against Brett will win.

Edit: By the way, if he fought Overeem, he would lose in a round.
