this is why fedor signed with strikeforce, to fight the borderline top 10's of the world.
I don't even know what to say... Any one whoi says brett rogers is untested, over rated, or borderline top 10 is on crack. He KOd andrei in under 25 seconds, not to mention has been hit and has had his chin tested in the previous fight before arlovski. He has been on his back for about 1 second in his whole career. If brett was in the ufc, he would be #1 contender over carwin. Brett is a top 5 hw, and fedor has his hands full in this one. Now I think fedor will win but I don't see him being able to take brett down unless he pulls guard or gets a perfectly time trip. Brett rogers is the best HW outside of the UFC not named fedor. And not to mention he has never been figured out, he hasn't shown any weakness in the cage and I look forward to seeing how he will do vs fedor
Brett has not been tested, how do you define test? AA never tested him, hell I dont think he even got a strike in, A test to me is when a guy is in a war with another fighter and has to overcome adversity, be on his back and over come, get hit and overcome, go the distance without having his will broke, etc. Brett hasnt been through any of that or atleast not enough to consider it a test and other than AA he hasnt faced anybody worth mention (jon murphy, Ron Humphrey?
). The best HW outside the ufc not named fedor, Better than Barney, Monson, Werdum, Overeem? I dont think so, all of the guys I just mentioned have been tested again and again and by some of the best fighters over the years and have earned their respects in the game. You dont think a Sambo champion of Fedors calibur will be able to put brett on his back, I dont think there is any figher in the HW division Fedor couldnt take down at some point. To conclude this post I am not a big fan of either guy (fedor, brett) but do respect them, all I am saying is look at the facts and keep it in perspective. On paper Fedor is 50 times the fighter Brett is at this point in their careers, that is only on paper though, they still have to go at it in a cage for it to meen anything.
