Fedor Emelianenko has an opponent in place for his next bout, and it's unbeaten Brett Rogers.

"The Grim" has been tapped to take on the man that most consider to be the best heavyweight in the world, it was announced during Emelianenko's Wednesday workout at New York City's FightHouse gym.

Hope the guy above me was kidding. Should be an easy fight for fedor. Brett Rogers is untested and imo overrated.

Brett Rogers by 15 second barrage.



This is why I don't agree with those who say Fedor is scared of UFC competition ruining his legacy.

Let's suppose for a second that the scenario predicted above does happen. Which hurts Fedor's credibility more? Losing in a 15 second barrage to the relatively unknown and untested Brett Rogers, or to someone like ... say Cheick Kongo or Shane Carwin?

Glad to know we'll see him in action again. Still seriously disappointed he's not fighting in the UFC, though.

this is why fedor signed with strikeforce, to fight the borderline top 10's of the world.

Fedor will withstand the opening barrage from Rogers, take him down and sub him. Another first round finish for Fedor. Its sad that after he finishes Rogers, he will have already cleaned out Strikforce's heavyweight division, minus 1 Alistar Overeem.

Bring on Gegard!!!

By Strikeforce standards Bret Rogers is a seasoned veteran.

to be fair to rogers, hes the exact same fighter as Carwin. Carwin just has been in the UFC hype machine. both are undefeated, huge HW's, and hit very hard. Carwins only win was gonzaga, and Rogers has Arlovski.

im sure UFC nuthuggers would be pooping their pants if it was fedor vs carwin

Get over it, guys! Fedor going to strikeforce was a buisness decision. He ain't duckin nobody.

Rogers will get tapped in the first three minutes though...
