Six Other Seth Rogen/James Franco Films That Should’ve Been Canceled

Video: Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers Have Their First Staredown


(Props: M1mixfight via MiddleEasy)

…and as you can see, the size difference is positively Couture/Lesnar-esque. Not that a size advantage helped Tim Sylvia against Fedor last July, but then again Sylvia is a clumsy oaf with doo-doo in his pants, and the Grim is an undefeated head-bussa with Ambien in his fists. Still no word on exactly when the Emelianenko/Rogers fight will go down, but the Strikeforce/M-1 crew is getting a head-start on filming promos for it, and arranged this face-off yesterday in New York. As for the Grim, he knows he’ll be The Man if he manages to score an upset against Fedor, telling MMA Fanhouse:

I’m God then. I’m the God of MMA. I’ll become the God of MMA, right? Isn’t that how it goes? I’m the soul snatcher; I’m the grim. I’ll take all his wins and put them under my belt, and then everybody can just hush up.

@Verago:

It will actually be his 4th fight in the US, but what do facts matter, right?

Rogers has big power, but it will be his lack of ground game that will be his undoing. If fedor gets it to teh ground, it will be over in seconds. That being aid, I really want Rogers to win, just so that everyone will stop misusing "GOAT" by labeling Fedor with it.

He won't be the MMA God *cough* Anderson the Spider Silva *cough*...

Sorry, I should see a doc about that terrible cough.

But I do think people will take Brett seriously if he can pull it off. People still question the Arlovski victory, but if he can bag Fedor, too? He'll get respect for sure.

Rogers via Debo threats.

Fedor is not ducking anyone. Ever.
Although eventually he will lose... be it a lucky punch.... decision.... SOMETHING. Probably at a time that NOBODY expects it too. It's the rules. Happens to everyone.
But I must point out size didn't help anyone of the other guys Fedor beat.

"Not that a size advantage helped Tim Sylvia against Fedor last July, but then again Sylvia is a clumsy oaf with doo-doo in his pants, and the Grim is an undefeated head-bussa with Ambien in his fists."

Fucking Great.

Oh and fuck Fedor... sick of his ducking BS.

does this man really think he's shang tsung?

Nobody will call it a curse of having fought in America for the first time because its not his first time. He's fought in Vegas once and Anaheim twice.

Oh Wesley Willis, I liked you better when you had a casio keyboard.

I think the last thing Brett should want is to win by KO... If he knocks Fedor out, everyone's gonna call it a fluke anyways. The best thing Brett can do is win by unanimous condition is a grueling 3 rounds where he spends his time taking Fedor down at will and defending his armbar attempts with submissions of his own. And I think we all know that won't happen. So either Fedor destroys him with a superior ground game (most likely), or gets knocked out (never happened before...) in which case people would call it the curse of having fought over in america for the first time. I doubt anyone is considering calling Brett Rogers the king of MMA!

Fedor by roundhouse kick in the 2nd round. But serriously, Fedor is gonna submit him with little to no effort.
Goog- August 28, 2009 at 6:57 am
Yeah, Grim.

Remember how Buster Douglas was instantly the boxing god after he knocked out Tyson? Er... not so much.

Good luck and all, but even if you beat him, that means it was your night. Will people start calling you the best in the world and mean it? Doubtful.

And I guess it's just the fans response to personality because it's interesting the way Rogers is a one trick striking pony and is embraced, but Lesnar preferring to mainly wrestle pisses off everyone else.

I wish this site was faster. It takes me 5 minutes to post a comment. I want to love you CP, I do, it's just you make it so hard to do.

Grim look's skinny for the Grim. I remember bigger moobs.

Grimm look's skinny for the Grimm.

If Grimm knocked out Fedor I would be soooo happy.
BuckWild- August 28, 2009 at 6:30 am
Fedor will be on him like a Squirrel on a mighty oak and then sink a RNC !

Jokulgoblin- August 28, 2009 at 6:29 am
Can Grim take a punch? I've only seen two of his fights so I have no idea. In my head I see him doing the same rush he pulled against the Pitbull and I can see Fedor throwing that fallback shot he used against the Pitbull. The outcome: ???

My gut says "g'night Grim!" but JEBUS! he looks big in that video.
Häkkiperuna- August 28, 2009 at 6:26 am
Hush the fuck up!
LAS- August 28, 2009 at 6:25 am
Yes, Brett, that's how it went in the Highlander. I'm guessing this fight will go a lot more like, say, Hostel. You'll be the guy in the chair, Fedor will be the guy with the blow torch.
Fight Fan- August 28, 2009 at 6:17 am
Of all the factors that can contribute to a win or loss for these two, size is not one of them. Grim needs a KO, and with a reach advantage, his chances of landing one may be slightly better.

These guys won't lay on each other, since Grim, I'm sure, would prefer to stand, and Fedor will make quick work of him on the ground.

Should be fun to watch.
