If this happens, he would absolutely be more viable to the ufc then anything else.
Usually that scenario plays out early in a fighter's career (see GSP). But in all likelihood, Fedor's career is winding to a conclusion. It would not surprise me to see him retire after a decisive loss.

^ Lol so much Vitriol

But yeah, Fedor is closer to the end of his career than the start I think, all I have to go on though is looking challenged by A.A. perhaps A.A. was fighting awesome that night

Lets keep this in perspective guys, its Brett Rogers. If Fedor thought he was a threat he would not be fighting him. If Brett survives the first round it will be a mental victory for him.

Exactly.

I hope Dana really did say Buck Rogers, b/c that is a) hilarious and b) be a good nickname for Brett Rogers.

One of these fighters is overrated, Dana is just a little confused about which one. Fedor is 30-1 and has beaten a laundry list of great fighters, with a few cans sprinkled in.

The combined record of Rogers opponents is 69-59, with 15 of those wins belonging to the only decent fighter he has beaten, arlovski. Some of Rogers 10 wins include victories over such luminaries as Mark Racine, 0-2 in his illustrious career, and Stan Strong, 0-1. Thats right, 0-1, his only fight in his entire career was a KO loss to Rogers. In other words, Rogers beats up guys that won a bar fight and decided to turn pro, and found out the difference between professionals and amatuers, and Fedor beats guys like Crocop and Nog.

So say it with me, which one of these fighters is overrated?

I'm a huge Fedor fan, and even I'm a little disgusted by this fight, Rogers is a total waste of time for Fedor. I think contractual issues are the reason Fedor isn't in the UFC, he isn't ducking anyone, but Rogers, sheesh.

I think fedor is overrated, he hasnt beat anyone good in 5+ years. Even arlovski was out striking him until he got caught. He's still a top 10 heavyweight just not #1 at the moment, more like #7.

It would definitely drop his stock by quite a bit. No one was saying Arlovski sucked when Fedor KO'ed him, but as soon as he lost to a relative unknown like Rogers, Dana was saying he didn't want Arlovski back anymore.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

It's symbolic. From a business perspective, Fedor represents the only legitimate, competitive product from an opposing company. The legitimacy of that product is less about the product itself (Fedor), but the allure & clout of his persona...ie.. invincible, untouchable, number one MMA’ist in the world, virtually flawless record, so if Rogers wins, that perfect product becomes tainted and Fedor becomes “just another great fighter,” and not, Feyador the myth.

MMA has tons of, “just another great fighter,” but currently, Fedor is an exclusive product, however, if he loses, Fedor falls out of the stratosphere and joins the pack of, “just another great fighter.” Therefore, in Dana’s [business] eyes, a Fedor loss would equate to his competition dramatically dropping in stock.

Dana will forever take Fedor, but wanting Fedor to lose is more about wanting Strikeforce to suffer.
