I think it's official now, I've seen it on a few different sites...

Good first fight for Fedor... Shame the lack of HW depth is going to make them spoil a good prospect like Rogers on the GOAT, but everyone's got to lose sometime and there's no shame in losing to the best... Rogers of course has a punchers chance, but with a big ? in his ground game category it's going to be hard to think he stands a chance on his back (or in Fedor's guard)

I agree. Unlike Kohsaka and Randleman, who both rang Fedor's bell, I think Rogers would have a good chance to finish anybody he'd rocked. That's about the only chance I give him, though. I can't even conceive of a game plan Rogers could employ against Fedor that doesn't go something like "throw bombs and pray." Either way, I doubt this fight will last the first round.

This will be a white knuckle fight, the type that you know Fedor will win, but with the power of Rogers, he could have a punchers chance. Also with the inexperiance / kind of unknown or untested past of Rogers could make for the biggest upset of MMA's history.

God I hate this. I wish they could give Fedor atleast Werdum, Antonio Silva, or **** even Ricco Rodriguez. I don't want to see him fight Rogers. I want Rogers to keep rising since hes only had a few wins and is coming off a huge upset over AA. But I agre with what was said above, no shame in losing though and you know he won't go down without a fight so it will be a good learning experience I guess and he could always catch Fedor but its a shame, I just cant see this fight ending anyway else besides Fedor dodging a few haymakers, tripping him down and choking him out in 2mins in the 1st. Hopefully this dont do to much to Rogers.

id love to see rogers pull this off
and i really hope fedor accepts the challenge of testing himself against rogers on the feet instead of taking the easy tap
even though i think fedor would brutally ko him on the feet

if this fight does end up happening,Fedor isnt going to dominate, as a matter of fact im not so sure that he's going to win. we have seen very little of the offence that Rogers has, all we've really seen is his punches. but if he lands a few on Fedor, who's to say he wont go down? if this fight goes to the ground Fedors going to dominate, but otherwise i think Rogers is going to take this one. Fedor's great, second best heavyweight in the World in my opinion. but Rogers could be better, i guess we shall see.

It's a good fight, the only other opponent I would rather see would be Overeem but he's on a hiatus.I thought Brett had a little bit of difficulty deraling with the speed of Ron Humphrey, so I could see him struggling to box Fedor in.

Should be a really interesting fight. Brett is a huge HW, and he seems to have pretty good TD defense. That said, I can't imagine him taking more than a couple Fedor signature looping hooks on the button.

I dunno, most people see Rogers as a top 10 HW... He's got a more impressive resume than guys like Valasquez and DosSantos, and is basically a bigger blacker version of Carwin... And I don't think anyone would bitch if Fedor fought any of those guys...

I guess some people just can't be satisfied
