21 Humans Who Make Being Human Look Really, Really Hard

Brett Rogers’ 1-0 Opponent Injured, So Now He’s Facing a 38-Year-Old Who is 2-1 Instead On Feb. 18


(“Awwww…How adorable are you?”)

It looks like Brett Rogers is content with his career being that of a can crusher.

The former EliteXC and Strikeforce heavyweight’s next opponent is 38-year-old Todd Allee, who is 2-1 (1 NC) with only four fights under his belt, including two wins against a pair of fighters with a combined 0-3 record.

“Da Grim,” who was dropped by Zuffa after his arrest last summer for beating his wife, was set to square off at the “My Bloody Valentine” event with another disgraced fighter by the name of Jeff “The Predator” Kugel. The 1-0 Michigan native, whose sole win came over Eric “Butterbean” Esch, was banned for life by the Ontario Hockey League after taking to the ice during a brawl, pulling a Paul Daley sucker punching an unsuspecting victim and skating around the ice trying to incite the crowd while the referees attempted to corral him.

Now instead he’ll face Allee, a Michigan-based gym owner and purple belt who hasn’t fought in a year.

Not surprisingly, Alee, like us, isn’t giving himself much of a chance of beating Rogers.

“I’m expected to lose, so if I put in a good performance, I did well for myself,” he explains. “I don’t feel worried.”

He is holding onto a thread of hope that he could somehow pull off a miracle win over his veteran opponent.

“I think it’s a good opportunity to fight a guy like him in my hometown. At this point, I would rather fight a big-name guy like this than some kid from nowhere who is an All-American wrestler and undefeated. Even if I beat [the wrestler], it does nothing for my career,” he says. “If I beat Brett Rogers, I’m a superhero!”

The question is, what kind of a commission sanctions a mismatch like this? Where I live, they’ve turned down evenly-matched fights between veterans because one of the fighters who has fought UFC vets and a WEC champion, hadn’t competed in MMA for three years. Rogers is 11-4. He’s faced Overeem, Barnett and Fedor and he beat Andrei Arlovski. There’s no way he should be matched up with a guy with as little experience as Allee.

This fight ended in a no contest at 1:30 into the first round. Allee was unable to continue after being hit in the back of the neck this fight was all but over when the foul happened as Rogers was a strike or two away from having the ref step in to safe Allee from the vicious ground and pound The Grimm was laying on!! The Fans were not happy as seemed Allee could have continued but took the easy way out!

Oh yeh, and Pen15, there's no doubt everyone who works at CP got the "First off, fuck you" joke.

Todd was actually my trainer at MASH gym in Michigan for a while, so all the normal smart assery is going out the window. He's being realistic, but I'm hoping that he fucking destroys Rogers.

Pen - yes, and expertly done. That's why we can call it a wrap here, what else is there to say?
J. Jones- February 9, 2012 at 10:16 am
I did, Pen. I did.

I hope people realized that my comment was a parody of Sean McCorkle's anti-CP rant from last week. If not...now you know.

I bet no-one knows what "Mofo" really means.
Mofo- February 9, 2012 at 8:22 am
Gotta say you guys are jerks for saying he seems to be "content". What frikking options does this sad sack have?? Why make fun of him?? That said, Pen15's comment is all that's needed here, this thread is closed. Wait, Pen15 means penis! I bet I'm the only retard who didn't already know that.

Pen Fifteen - please don't talk shit about my new bitch Drano. That dirty whore is still celebrating "New Year of the Trees" and choking on some cum. Ps...please keep it quiet about the cross dressing parties Ben throws - if you don't tell, neither will I.

As the owner of a small auto-body repair shop in Las Vegas I am extremely interested in the outcome of this fight. I am accepting applications and would prefer the applicant have experience.

First off, fuck you. Second off, Rogers' opponent actually has a record of 37-2, with all 37 victories by knockout within 10 seconds, which you'd know if you checked somehwere other than Sherdog fight finder for statistics. Third off, you forgot to mention that Rogers is only fighting this guy because Fedor, Werdum, Cain, JDS, Brock Lesnar, John Cena, The Undertaker, The Incredible Hulk, and Kim Jong-Il all turned down fights with him. Fourth off, you guys are almost as gay as XENOPHON's boyfriend, and it's close.

Is this the same Brett Rogers everyone said had no business being in the ring with overeem/barnett/fedor/arlovski?
Circle of life, brehs. Kind of ironic, innit?
At least he still has that illustrious tire changing career to fall back on.

I think it was sanctioned when the Grim's wife said she would be cornering Allee.

Can Cecil Peoples ref this fight?
