Exactly. Everybody is writing off Rogers as a unworthy opponent, but most people do so without having ever watched the dude fight. That dude is heavy-handed & mean, and getting better by the day. Plus, a fight is always a fight, and anything can happen, specially amongst heavyweights...

I look forward to watching Fedor submit him though

Re: Fedor vs. Rogers on CBS

Arlovksi, who personally is one of my favorite heavy weights, got obliterated by rogers.. who is absolutely a mean dude with ridiculous haymakers....

but... being a monster striker (fujuita punch anyone?) doesn't seem to be the golden ticket to knock out fedor. I think the person to beat fedor will set an extremely high tempo and just drain him (unless he is in fact.. an android).

ya fedor submission @ 2:46 round 1.

Re: Fedor vs. Rogers on CBS

That was a great fight! Probably Fedor's toughest test to date. Fedor has some seriously heavy hands. He put everything he had into that punch.

Re: Fedor vs. Rogers on CBS

His toughest test to date? I thought he had tougher fights with Big Nog, Cro Cop and Mark Hunt.

You're correct. This wasn't Fedor's toughest test to date. It's just been a while since we've seen Fedor bleeding like that.

Re: Fedor vs. Rogers on CBS

That was a seriously good card. The wife and I enjoyed every fight. Brett did better that I expected and could have won that fight when he was gnp'ing Fedor, but Fedor probably isn't human!

I think 99% of the heavyweights out there would have been TKO'ed if then were in the same position as Fedor was with Rodgers on top raining down punches from his guard.

I don't think I've ever seen a more measured and full-body punch in any fight. It was both a near 100% full-body punch, yet at the same time perfectly timed and placed. It wasn't a haymaker that most "heavy-handed" fighters throw.

Now, I really want to see Fedor-Lesner. (Heck, I'd like to see Rogers-Lesner. IMO, Lesner needs to prove he could get past Rogers.) Dana's got to put his ego aside and just pay the man whatever he wants.

I went back and watched those fights just to be sure. Fedor dominated Nog and CroCop start to finish. They were able to gut out more punishment.

I will concede the point about Hunt, though Hunt was not able to damage Fedor.

Rogers was actually able to G&P Fedor with some big shots.

Re: Fedor vs. Rogers on CBS

And didn't Arlvoski give him more trouble? Hell from what I remember he was winning until he decided to go for the stupid flying knee.
I think Rogers got lucky with that punch causing that much damage otherwise I think he just ends up getting beat on for 2 rounds like what ended up happening. The only time I ever felt he was doing anything good was when he was on top and even then I wasn't too worried.
