Exclusive: Brett Rogers Discusses Josh Barnett, Strikeforce Heavyweight GP


Brett Rogers interview – Watch more Funny Videos

After starting his career with ten consecutive KO/TKO victories (eight of which were earned in the first round), Brett Rogers came face-to-face with MMA’s heavyweight elite — and couldn’t rise to the challenge. A competitive bout with Fedor Emelianenko in November 2009 ended in a second-round loss thanks to a devastating overhand right. Somehow, Rogers was graced with a title shot for his next appearance, and got Reem’d in short order.

The Grim rebounded with a decision win over Ruben “Warpath” Villareal in October, and now finds himself in the eight-man field of Strikeforce’s heavyweight grand prix, where he’ll be facing Josh Barnett in the quarterfinals on April 9th (venue TBA). Our reporter Brian J. D’Souza caught up with Rogers at last weekend’s Fedor vs. Silva event to get his thoughts on the fights, his matchup with the Babyface Assassin, Fedor Emelianenko’s decline, and the opportunity to redeem himself in the heavyweight GP. Give it a look.

I would like to hear Rampage and Brett Rogers debate illegal immegration or something. Maybe sprinkle in a smidge of the Diaz brothers. Fuck those guys are stupid.

As for the fight, I see Rogers winning it in the 2nd round by Uhhhhh.

Haha Karkov? Isn't that a Bond villain?

Granted tongue jiu jitsu isn't his thing, he's more of a standup guy.

Interviewer thinks Brett's upcoming fight is the "first round in the tournament"??

This is like an interview from UFC 1.

@Ralphie blah blah - totally! I totally tapped out at 2.5 minutes too. Right around "uhhhhhh, well, you know, you gotta look towards the, uhhhhhh, future, can't, you know, look towards the uhhhh."

To Nickydouche. It's only inexplicable because you are lacking in MMA knowledge

LOL @ the name pronunciations, and questions in this interview. Horrible.

I made it to the 2:31 mark before I tapped.

Interviewer was to busy getting credentialled (sams card) to learn proper enunciation so they called gus johnson for pointers. Wasted most of that time getting make up tips while brett was rotating a 00 lincoln. Good interview when considering all the distractions like a metric ton baby formula spill on aisle 4g.

In other news, Rogers still can't get "Kharitonov" to come out right. (Neither can our interviewer, WTF?)

Surprised you can't hear beeping in the background.

An exclusive with brett rogers? How many tires did you have to buy to secure that?

Honestly have no opinions on him other than we don't know if he's even mediocre or not. Famous for calling out kimbo, biggest victory is koing andrie 'dont sneeze to close' arvlovski, and was first to show how bad Fedor had. Become. Barnett should beat him via unlicensable smothering.

edit's no good yet huh?

Well I refrained from commentating on my three year prediction Fedor hadn't fought anyone in 15 years and would lose to anyone decent. But this is not that incredibly troll-filled Ranking article and I digress but honestly, Please let this fuckin' tire changer beat Barnett. Another fucking guy with an inexplicable reputation and seems to prosper from the fact that simply fighting the occasional tomato can can keep your rep rock solid for a number of years among fans who are notta-so-smart. WAR ROGERS
