(Excellent use of the ‘Rogers, you a hater!’ sample here.)
After sitting out for nearly a year following the collapse of Pro Elite and the ensuing sticky contract situation, Brett “The Grimm” Rogers finally gets back into action this weekend as he takes on Ron “Abongo” Humphrey in Strikeforce. Despite his undefeated record, Rogers may be best known for his feud with EliteXC poster boy Kimbo Slice (see also: this awesome video). In this exclusive interview, Rogers talks about that bad blood, his frustration with Elite XC, and his plans for taking over the Strikeforce heavyweight class.
Your last fight was in May of 2008, and since then you’ve been waiting around for another fight, first with EliteXC, and now with Strikeforce. Are you concerned that all the time off, all the contract stress, may have made you rusty or affected your timing?
I’m more eager than anything. I’ve had a lot of time to think about things, and now I’m just ready to go. It’s time for me to go out there and show off, once again. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who bumped into contract conflicts over it. But everything’s squared away now. I’m just trying to focus on what I have to do this weekend and go out and get a win.Read More DIGG THIS
