WAR ROGERS
(and yes, I am aware that his chances of winning are basically 'zero', but that makes it so much more exciting if he can!)

I'm so pumped this is in my hometown.

I never would have thought Fedor would be in my backyard, but I'm totally there.

Hes got a chance. Probably a better chance than Overeem. Rogers has huge KO power. If he can unleash a flurry in the opening rnd he can catch Fedor. I dont think itll last long on the mat though.
