Roger Gracie is a minefield.

The rest of the division is a bunch of UAVs dropping missiles.


I'm not following your analogy, but if you make references to call of duty games, prepare to be outclassed in comparisons between fighters and killstreaks. I didn't realize Roger subbed Xande

If he's gonna fight soon, Bonnar would be a great first opponent for him.

minefield = ground explosives = you're fucked if the fight is on the ground
dropping missiles = knockout power with strikes

Roger is nearly 6 foot 5..hes lucky to make LHW let alone MW..

I think it's a bad move...he needs a lot more experience,and to dedicate himself 100% to MMA or he's going to take some serious beatings.

I don't think he will ever be at the top of the heap in the UFC. But make no mistake if he gets them down they are in for a world of hurt. His ability on the ground is better than anyone in the UFC at 205.

Apparently these talks were premature. He's not being signed.

Yep. He's staying in Strikeforce, per Dana.
