Dana White hopes Brett Rogers doesn't KO Fedor; Still wants Fedor in UFC

I agree with Dana here. I think Brett Rogers has a good chance of beating Fedor and people are counting him out. I don't think Fedor is overrated like Dana, but I think Rogers is really underrated.

What does that mean if he loses to rogers, the UFC won't take him because he has one loss on his record? He's gonna lose one day so what, all great fighters have lost sometime or another.

"The reality is, I hope that Buck Rogers doesn't knock him out, because I want to get Fedor in the UFC. I want to see him fight Brock Lesnar. He's fighting a dangerous guy. I don't think he's that good, I think he's overrated and I think he might get knocked out." -Dana White

UFC President Dana White gives his thoughts on Strikeforce's upcoming CBS debut main event match up between Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers. Emelianenko recently rebuffed the UFC's offer to compete in its heavyweight division for a guaranteed title shot against Brock Lesnar. The organization reportedly offered the Russian superstar a 6-fight $30 million dollar contract, but was turned down in favor of a deal with Strikeforce who offered to co-promote events with Emelianenko's management team, M-1 Global.

It was White's second failed attempt to land the man many consider to be the most talented mixed martial arts fighter in the world today. The UFC first attempted to sign the former PRIDE heavyweight champion after purchasing the PRIDE organization and renegotiating deals with many of its fighters in order to allow them to compete in the UFC. After brief negotiations, Emelianenko turned down the UFC in order to compete for the upstart Affliction promotion where he fought twice; winning big fights against former UFC heavyweight champions Tim Syliva and Andrei Arlovski respectively.

Since that time White has been critical of Emelianenko, calling him out on numerous occasions for ducking the world's best fighters and taking long layoffs between fights. He's repeatedly stated belief that the 33-year-old Sambo master is "overrated."
Brett Rogders has a punchers chance. Once Fedor gets him on the ground it is a matter of minutes until the fight is over.

To me this sounds like Dana is admitting that Fedor is not just fighting bums outside the UFC..

Dana is giving this "Buck" guy a lot of credits when calling him "a dangerous guy"..

Alienspy has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Think about this. When a fighter loses for the first time, they get super motivated to come back. And more often then none they go on a rampage tear. If Fedor happens to lose this one, which could be a possiblity since anything can happen. Imagine Fedor going ape shit motivated and just coming back and destroying everything in his path and beating Rogers in a rematch. If this happens, he would absolutely be more viable to the ufc then anything else.

Knowing Dana, this is what is likely going on.

I'll take anything that Dana says with a grain of salt regarding a fighter not in his organization .
