I highly doubt Overeem is afraid.

I hope these 2 fight though because it would be one awesome bout.

Overeem has got a lot more experince to go off of,but what we have seen of rogers is impressive.
Alister has come into his own in the past few years,and Rogers has proven to already be a juggernaut at HW.
I'm leaning slightly towards Rogers,but I say it's really about 50/50

Rogers is always claiming people are ducking him when he doesnt get what he wants. if he was in the ufc Brock Lesnar would be ducking him. if he was with affliction fedor would be ducking him. get over yourself! your only significant win is over Arlovski who clearly has some issues to deal with. enjoy your undefeated streak while it lasts.

i'd probably be a Rogers fan if it wasnt for the constant whining when he doesnt get the fight he wants. he should just be happy he can fight for a living instead of tossing tires.

where does rogers go from here though? is there a big fight for him left in SF outside of a title fight? after beating AA i dont think theres a guy that they can toss him in there against thats a step up in competition so hes probably going to end up with a lesser fighter than he deserves at this point. who knows though, maybe a rothwell or monson or someone like that can be brought in for him to fight in the meantime and solidify him as the #1 contender.

I really wish that fighters, fans, promoters, managers, trainers, etc. put "he's afraid" shit away. It's just stupid. I am convinced that no professional fighter at this level is afraid to fight another guy.

I do understand a fighter's position in terms of fights that may be risky or not beneficial to their careers, but it has nothing to do with being afraid of the other fighter.

For example, a surgeon that trains in martial arts may not want to punch wood or blocks because they don't want to risk injuring their hands (because they need them for their career), but it doesn't necessarily mean they are afraid of hurting their hands (for example the pain).

Well he said it to get ppl talking, so it looks like it worked. That's how hype works.

Why do ppl get butthurt about some trash talk to try to get your fighter being talked more about?

If Overeem isn't really afraid he should be.Rogers is the next big thing and will continue to prove it against any hw on the planet.He's gunning for Fedor and his WAMMA belt.

Because it is lame and it shows the inferior mentality of the fighters and fans that buy into it.
