As Brett Rogers approaches what could very well be the zenith of his celebrity in the run-up to his fight against Fedor Emelianenko on CBS this weekend, he has decided to do something good with his pre-fight fame by taking a bold stand against dog fighting. The stilted delivery of these few lines might make you glad that "The Grimm" didn’t get that role as B.A. Baracus after all, but dammit, I dare you to look at an enormous man who is holding an adorable puppy and tell him that his acting sucks. Ain’t nobody that heartless.
While looking over KnockOutDogFighting.org and seeing the other MMA fighters who have lended their support to this very worthwhile cause (Cung Le, Rob McCullough, Tito Ortiz, and former Rogers/Fedor victim Andrei Arlovski, among others), I couldn’t help but notice that Fedor’s name was conspicuously absent from the list. Kind of makes you wonder, no? Why won’t he tell the world how he feels about dog fighting? What is he hiding!?! Is it the bloated, scarred pile of dog corpses in his Stary Oskol basement!!!?!??
Call me an alarmist now, but when it’s finally revealed that Fedor draws his strength from the blood of puggles, then we’ll see who looks like the idiot.
