"[Brett] took about a week off but that's it. We are already making preparations for his next fight and have started his training program. Brett didn't suffer any injuries during that fight so there is no reason not to get him right back in the cage training again. That was another frustrating thing about the fight in that Brett suffered no damage. I remember being in the locker room and telling him that I should hit him with something so it looks like he was actually in a fight. If we were able to round up 10,000 more people on short notice Brett would be able to have a rematch today. His puppy does more damage to him than he sustained in the fight ... Whoever Strikeforce decides to give us whether it is Fabricio Werdum, (Antonio) Silva or (Alistair) Overeem we will take it."

Team Bison's Mike Reilly, head trainer for Strikeforce heavyweight Brett Rogers, is ready to send his star pupil right back into battle following his TKO loss to WAMMA champ Fedor Emelianenko in the main event of "Saturday Night Fights" back on Nov. 7 in Hoffman Estates, IL.

I find it very hard not to like 'The Grim'

I just love to see him fight and I always find myself hoping he wins.

I like the guy too, but he should fight Bigfoot, let Fedor smash Werdum so that Overeem has to forfiet the belt. God knows he's not going to willingly fight Fedor.

Agreed!!!

I'm a fan of Rogers for sure. I just like to see that guy win.

I like Brett too but his camp is getting on my nerves. He put up a good fight against Fedor but he still lost very convincingly. They're acting like Fedor beat him by fluke punch or something. If Rogers puppy does that much damage to him I'd consider calling animal control.

Couldn't agree more. I'd give props but I gotta spread the love. I'm tired of hearing from his trainer too. He's been doing an awful lot of talking lately.

I would like to see him vs Overeem

I agree with the two dudes above me. His camp is annoying. Rogers showed he's on the cusp of the top 10, but fedor still planted him, move on and don't make your name on just about beating fedor, wasn't like he fujita'd him or anything, just did better then most against fedor. Earn your way back, don't cry for a rematch against a guy who floored you.

Bobby Lashley needs a step up in competition, a guy like Brett Rogers would be perfect. That is if he were to sign with SF.

If not then Grim vs Bigfoot makes sense.

Grim vs Bigfoot makes a lot of sense. Whoever lost that fight would be kinda buried, so I could see Strikeforce giving them a chance to get back. I dunno enough about Strikeforce yet to know how the react to loses from top tier fighters.
