Default Rogers says Fedor Best Heavyweight. Overheem as champ is insult

Brett "The Grim" Rogers, who just lost via a devastating KO to Fedor Emelienanko in October looks to Alistair Overeem for his next fight. From M-1Global:

"[Fedor] is certainly the best heavyweight in the world. But he does have weaknesses. We all do �" isnít that what makes champions great -- they win even with weaknesses? They win even though they can be beat? He is not a machine.... I want to fight soon, and I want to fight Alistair. Iím 100% healthy and took zero damage in the fight; so Iím ready to go right now. As I said Strikeforce is my home; I love Strikeforce and in my opinion Alistair holding the title belt is an insult to every fighter in this organization, every fan and to Scott Coker. Champions defend their titles. And either Scott strips him and real fighters battle for it; or I will take it off him the hard way."
Well put Brett

Guess it took a few weeks for that KO to humble him properly.

Although Brett lost that fight, I'd say it bumped him very close to the top 10, at least 15 in the world for heavyweights.

Good stuff, hope he comes back stronger and more determined than ever.
