After Brett Rogers knocked out Andrei Arlovski on June 6, he met Fedor Emelianenko immediately. They were asked to pose for photos together and in that whirlwind Rogers realized he would one day fight the world’s best heavyweight—he just didn’t think it would be five months later.

Critics and fans have been shocked at Rogers’ assertions about his upcoming bout against the world’s best heavyweight: Emelianenko’s not invincible, Emelianenko hasn’t been hit like he can hit and Emelianenko will lose on Nov. 7.

But nothing seems to be shaking Rogers. Not the fact that Emelianenko is a superior ground fighte, that he has far more experience against far better fighters. In fact, Rogers has a counter for all of it: he’s 40-pounds heavier, hard to take down, and unfazed by main event attention.

“I never think about losing,” said Rogers of his confidence. He doesn’t think about losing because if he does, well, it will come sooner than later.

As it stands, Rogers believes all the pressure is on his oppenent because he has a reputation to uphold as the world’s best heavyweight. “I still feel like a dude off the street going into the cage sometimes,” said Rogers. “I shouldn’t feel like that…It is what it is. This is my career man. This is who I am. This is me now.”

Rogers knows that fighters have a short shelf-life, that he has to take advantage of every opportunity and make the most of it for himself and his family. After all, he escaped the Chicago ghettos and worked round the clock changing tires and training to earn the right to be here, on the verge of fame and wealth he could only imagine a few years ago.

“I just felt I needed to do something good. My grandma had 10 kids man. No superstars, no doctors, no lawyers. See where I’m going with that?” said Rogers. “I’m like man, if anybody’s the chosen one, I’m feeling like I’m the chosen one.”

I don't think that he CAN'T win...he does have a few things going for him...

I just think he WON'T. If Arlovski couldn't beat Fedor in a stand up fight, Rogers won't either.

Playin' devil's advocate here......I think that many people thought that Arlovski WAS beating Fedor until he got caught with a well placed punch.

Later.

Sherdog made a really good point: Arlovski, Sylvia, Schilt, Hong & a slew of others have all had a puncher's chance against him. Never turned out too well, though!

Point taken. Now, I haven't seen Rogers fight, so does anyone know how technically sound he is with his hands? We all know Arlovski was quite good...

So my argument would consist of this; yeah, I think Arlovski might've been winning that fight, but if he's technically better than Rogers, well...then no wonder he was doing well against Fedor.

For the short amount of time that fight was.. Arlovski was winning. He just got stupid.. and this is coming from a Arlovski N'hugger... Fedor seemed to be caught off gaurd...

Arlovski was like.. Bad Russian accent ":w00t:WHEEEEEEE I'm doing it.. I'm doing IT!!! :punch: .... Knee shot time!!!! "

SMACK!! :faint:(Joe Rogan Voice) "RIGHT on the BUTTON!!!!!"

Bad Russian accent... "Wha happen....:dizzy:"

Rogers has some skills.. but he is like a better Kevin Ferguson.. with more power..

If Fedor is smart.. (and he is)... he will do this.....


During the Stare Down.. he will point at Brett then draw his index finger across his neck.. then in the best Drago voice he has.. "I will break you" right into the mike....

The bell rings.. Fedors shots right in.. and welcomes Brett to High Level MMA as only Fedor can...

No, Rodgers just thinks he can beat Fedor.

It's not like he thinks he was born in a Kenyan manger.

Yeah, it takes a special thread to merit an appearance from Black Jesus...:laugh:

arlovski was winning the stand up but he decided it would be cool to leap into the air without protecting his face. anyway if fedor loses i will be pissed.

So Carwin was losing to Gonzaga before he knocked him out to and got his nose broken.... It happens to fighters alot but somhow just cause fedor was losing a fight for a minute it means hes not the best!!!! what a joke

I've seen about 3 of his fights. Looking at his physique, I doubt his endurance, but like Fedor's appearance, never judge a book by its' cover. He is extremely fast on his feet, punches quickly and hard having finished all of his 10 fights due to strikes - knees and punches. The dude finishes fights, period.

All odds point to Fedor, no doubt, he's the man, but I wouldn't necessarily count Rogers out of this fight at all. I'd say Fedor's shot is to put Rogers on his back, I haven't seen that done yet.

Who doesh he think he is?




if you had nine uncles and aunts who did nothing with their lives, and you were the only person in your family who actually made something of your life, and beat "the best fighter on the planet" on national television, then i bet you'd be questioning if you were the chosen one too, within your family.
