Slated to be Fedor Emelianenko's first opponent in the Strikeforce promotion, undefeated heavyweight Brett Rogers plans to knock out the top ranked Russian.

"I'm going out there to knock Fedor out. I'm going out there to knock him out just like Arlovski. It ain't going to be no different," Rogers told Tapout Radio earlier this week.

"The way I see it, he's not going to want to stand with me. He's going to want to take me down and play the little ground and pound game because he knows damn well my hands are ferocious and he's not going to be able to handle my power. It's not going to happen."

Questioned how his ground game matches up against the Russian's, Rogers said, "If he gets lucky and takes me down, because I'm not an easy guy to take down, I'm a stand-up fighter, so I train real hard on standing up, but if he succeeds, I'm cool. I'm cool with it. I'm a patient guy. I'm just going to hold him and get back up and make him play my game, and he's going to have to try all over again."

The bout has been agreed to, but no date has been set. "They just told me to be ready by October or November," said the 28-year-old fighter.

"There's a couple of situations with the UFC. They don't want to schedule a show on the same day as one of their shows."
In response:

Fedor's not afraid of you: Cyborgs don't know fear.
You won't be able to just hang on against Fedor: Cyborgs can't be stopped
It doesn't matter when you schedule your card, Dana will just create a new Spike Fight specifically to counter-program.

I don't like rogers, but i want him to win this fight just to see the fedor huggers reaction...But realistically, i think his mouth is cashing checks his skill can't cash

The odds of him KOing Fedor are slime to none.
Fedor has faced much more seasoned strikers with more impressive records,
better K-1 kickboxing records, etc....
This fight will end by TKO or armbar, first round.

I saw a vid of Fedor sparring with Aleks. I can honestly say that he would wipe the floor with anyone, including Anderson if they were ever to fight. Fedor moves as if he's a light-heavyweight, not a heavyweight. IT's incredible:

Notr that he will, but thsi is not the man you want to see give Fedor his first loss. he's a dick. I hope Fedor knock's him out cold in 5 seconds.

I don't have a problem with fedor, but it would just be fun to see the reaction of the pseudo-fedor fans that have come out of the woodwork in recent years...not saying your one of them Mark, but their are plenty of them out there and they are just as annoying as GSP fans

I think that's a bit of an exaggeration. Anybody can look good sparring. Fedor looked fine in that video but he's not even close to AS in the striking category.

Yeah, I've been a Fedor fan for a long time, and I'd hate to see someone who (like Matt is a good influence in the sport) get beat by a guy that doesn't seem to really have a great ammount of respect for other fighters or the sport in general. Matt and Fedor are both good spiritual sportsmen who also have a grounded approach to fame and a realistic view on what is really important in life. There are few fighters that I will always root for and Matt (of course) and Fedor are at the top of a small list.

Can he KO Fedor? Sure he can hes a brawler w/power aka Tank Abbott,but just bigger and a little darker:wink:
I agree that if Fedors gonna lose I don't want it to be to this guy theres something about him that rubs ya wrong.

sparring with your brother is alot different than actually fighting someone who you've never sparred with before. fedor may move like he's a light heavyweight, but anderson moves like he's a welterweight and sometimes like he's a lightweight. sometimes he even moves like agent smith from the matrix. best part is, anderson can move like that while weighing the same weight as fedor.

anyways, i really want to see fedor get knocked out. i like fedor, but i like huge upsets even more. i love seeing how a single upset can shake the entire MMA community to it's core. just imagine MMA news sites and forums the day after brett rodgers (a virtual unknown to most fans until he signed his fight with fedor) knocks out 'the greatest fighter on the planet'

it will be like the apocalypse, and i'll be sitting front row eating my popcorn with a smile on my face while the the MMA sites crash and come back with people going ballistic.

of course i could be wrong and fedor could zulu him, and in that case no one will be surprised because rodgers doesn't deserve a fight with fedor in the first place

c'mon, don't tell me you've never wanted to see a huge upset happen for the heck of it. everyone has at least once.

it's nothing against fedor, it's for the excitement of the sport.
