EliteXC Finally Gives Brett Rogers an Opponent

After a few months of keeping him far, far away from Kimbo Slice, EliteXC is ready to give Brett “The Grim” Rogers his next fight. Five Ounces of Pain reports that the undefeated heavyweight — who has won all eight of his fights via stoppage due to strikes — has agreed to meet American Kickboxing Academy’s Paul Buentello (26-10) at EliteXC’s “A Night of Champions” show on November 8th in Reno.

Rogers hasn’t fought since his 61-second KO of Jon Murphy at EliteXC: Primetime in May. Buentello is under contract with Affliction, and was slated to face Roy Nelson at “Day of Reckoning” earlier this month until the event was canceled. He was also scheduled to face Aleksander Emelianenko at “Banned” in July, but wound up fighting (and winning a decision over) replacement opponent Gary Goodridge when Aleks was pulled from the card.

The booking of Rogers/Buentello adds even more muscle to what’s shaping up to be an impressive Showtime card. The lineup, as it stands, looks like this:

Robbie Lawler vs. Joey Villasenor (for middleweight title)
Nick Diaz vs. Eddie Alvarez (for vacant lightweight title)
Brett Rogers vs. Paul Buentello
Scott Smith vs. Hector Lombard
Kaitlin Young vs. Sarah Kaufman
Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante vs. TBA

Brett "The Broke-ass Clubber Lang" Rogers says: "I pity the FOO!" When asked how his day was going Seth "Flame-On" Bitchruzzeli was quoted as saying "I'm so super, thanks for asking!"

This is a GREAT card. Really stacked card from EliteXC.
Hopefully this will be a sign of what is to come in 2009.

Buentello had a 0:15 min loss to Arlovski, Kimbo went one sec. down...

It's just so fucking sad that Elite utterly failed to hype Rogers and hand him Kimbo, I'm betting "The Grim" is a wee bit more marketable that Petruzelli.

Very solid card. I hope they get a decent opponent for Feijao to round it out.

you know that was a pretty solid card even before they added the rogers/buentello fight

Solid card - look forward to it. This will be a nice test for brett, get him in there against a good named fighter. Should be a great fight between diaz and alvarez too. can't wait.
