Quotes of the Day: Brett Rogers and Fabricio Werdum Like Their Chances

("I must break you. Right after I get a few more of those doughnuts." Photo courtesy of ShoSports.)

Brett "The Grim" Rogers on his upcoming matchup with Fedor Emelianenko:

"I feel that I’m a different fighter for Fedor; Fedor hasn’t felt the power that he’s about to get. You see what I mean? It’s definitely gonna be a fun fight, man. He’s talented, but the same things he’s skilled in, I’m skilled in.* It’s just we just gonna see who’s more hungry.**

Basically, a fighter for his size, his weight, just the way his aggression, when he takes top he’s good at controlling the top position. So, I’ve been trying to work with guys that can kinda mock him***; he may have that, a couple pounds less than me… But if he’s expecting to take top, and hold top, it’s not gonna happen.**** I’m definitely gonna re-position myself whenever I get in danger and hopefully get back to the feet and finish it off." —

* Seriously, Brett? Are you really suggesting that you can draw as well as the Last Emperor?

** You mean who’s literally more hungry? Because you both come across as very hungry people. Big eaters, is all I’m saying. Come to think of it, a pie-eating contest between the two of you would probably be a lot more competitive than a cage-fight.

*** There’s only one guy who could possibly take on that job.

**** It might happen. It’s probably going to happen.

Fabricio Werdum gives his thoughts on the Emelianenko/Rogers match:

"Brett is a huge guy, very heavy, but I don’t know if he has Fedor’s speed… He’s chubby, but is the best of the world, so I think Fedor bests him in explosion*, even more if Brett tries to box with him. Brett has a heavy hand, everything can happen, but Fedor will knock him out.

To beat Fedor, just me (laughs)… It’s gonna be with me. My game doesn’t match with Fedor’s and I trust in me… This fight will happen and I feel very well, everybody saw in my last fight** that I’m better, lighter, training hard and focused. It won’t be easy, he showed he’s the best in the world, but I want this opportunity."***

* "What are Fedor’s keys to victory here, Frank?" "Explosion, Mauro, hands down. Let’s go to the Official Showtime Strikeforce M-1 Global Exploding Skinless Animated Dummies for a demonstration…"

** The fight when you dominated an unranked light-heavyweight? That fight?

*** Jeez, give it a rest, guys. At least Alistair Overeem had the good sense to leave the country until this whole "Fedor in Strikeforce" thing blows over…

holy good lord jesus h christ - did anyone see those drawings? Did I miss something? Are they really REALLY by Fedor?

Can the world's baddest badass get any more cute and cuddly? I just want to squeeze the magic out of those nonchalant cheeks.

>>> To the knucklehead who wrote this column :


Heck, a steaming pile of dung can draw as well as the Last Emperor.

Yeah, Rogers is done in the first.

The Grim may not be able to draw nearly as well as Fedor, but his basket weaving skills are unparalleled in the HW division.

I don't see getting any traffic for quite awhile, but if their site had any good content my thoughts would be different.

What about fedorisgay? He's pretty good at mocking Fedor.

Looking at the physique of Brett, I'm not liking his chances. Fedor feeds on ice cream, yes, but his quickness to search and destroy his larger opponents is uncanny. Fedor KO's Rogers, round 1.

I'd love to see Silva imitate Jardine

Alright lets get some facts straight here...

1) Brett and Fedor have tons of talent here but they're in different areas, Brett is the King of KFC and Fedor is the King of the drive by ice cream truck

2) Whose more hungry? I'm gonna go with rogers on this one, look at the size of the dude, the only reason KFC doesn't sponser him is because their afraid he'll put them out of business eating all their free food they'll give him.

3) Find someone to mock fedor? might as well go find the most lifeless blow up doll available and start punching the shit outta it.

4) Since when did you develop a ground/scramble game Brett Rogers? I'm guessing when fedor takes you down, it will be like a whale just got washed up on the beach.

i can already see key to victory animation for Brett.

Big fat black dummy desperately tryes to load the cannon with heavy armor-piercing ammo...

We don't see Fedor getting beat for quite a while, but if he was fighting in the UFC our thoughts would be very different..

we're still doing the first and second post around here?

What kind of promo photos are these? I remember CP posting the video of this photoshoot and I was thinking, how are they going to make that actually look good? Seems they were wondering the same thing, terrible hype pics. Only thing it shows is the size of Rogers, jeez man, guy is thick. But for talent, experience, and everything else that matters in the cage, gotta go with Fedor.

and LMAO at Werdum, put the peace pipe down, I mean smoking is fun, but do it every day and you'll experience dementia..

The Keys to Victory will show the skinless dummy as Fedor Superman punching the other skinless dummy (Rogers) or performing some other move that Fedor never uses as his only chance of winning. Count on it.

Those vignettes are lame and condescending as hell.

fedors easy you just do those lil circles with your fists then throw a murderball.

*****Comments were great.

Can Anderson Silva please do a Fedor imitation. I didnt even know there was a "Couture Style" until I saw The Spider do it.
