Video: Fedor Emelianenko vs. Brett Rogers in Strikeforce

Here’s the video of last night’s Strikeforce main event on CBS for those of you who, like me, relied on your DVR to record the entirety of last night’s event, only to become enraged when the recording cut out early in the first round.  Or if you just couldn’t tear yourself away from another gripping episode of "America’s Most Wanted," that’s cool too.  Who knows?  One of these days you might see your neighbor on there.  Then won’t you be glad you missed things like awesome fights and the weddings of family members in order to stay home and stare at fugitives on TV.

The only time I saw Fedor struggling was with the mechanics of how to fight in the cage. And it looks to me like he figured it out pretty quick.

rogers needs to tie his pants up, rookie!!!!!

People act like Fedor should lose cred because he didn't walk in there and knock Brett cold with 1 punch in the opening 10 seconds. You can't expect him to walk through every opponent, everytime out. Nobody will do that. I saw IMO no point in this fight where Fedor was in trouble. People that said he was hurt and in danger when he was taking shots to the face and head when he was on his back must not have seen many Fedor fights. It ain't his first time at the rodeo, so to speak. Hell, he was on his back taking harder shots than that against Hong Man-Choi before he tapped him with an arm bar from hell. Brett looked better than I expected, but Fedor was never hurt, in trouble, etc.

What's the point in speculating whether or not Fedor struggled? That's like saying Lesnar struggled because Mir caught him a few times in the stand-up which made Lesnar turtle up and immediately shoot for the takedown.

I mean does Fedor need to step into the cage and not take a single strike or reversal on the ground to meet your expectations?

At the end of the night. Lesnar still bashed Mir's face in and guess what .. at the end of the night Fedor still knocked a 10-0 fighter, who probably the night of the fight outweighed him by nearly 40lbs into the next decade with a PERFECTLY timed right hand. Give credit where it's due. We saw a much improved Brett Rogers and we saw Fedor doing what he does best. Regardless of any adversity be it skill-set, experience, or size of his opponent, he finds a way to win.

I agree 100%.

First off, KenFlo you are an idiot.

That aside, if you watch the fight, nowhere do you really see Fedor struggle. He knocked/threw Rogers down multiple times, then made his head spin with that overhand.
I'm not taking anything away from Rogers, and I'm not saying that Fedor got an easy victory, but I do have a hard time seeing where in fact Fedor "struggled" during the fight.

Thought each guy up'd his stock in this fight. Rogers defended Fedor's takedowns better than I thought he would, and when they were grappling he did a good job of avoiding a few subs, particularly a few aggressive kimura attempts by Fedor. He also took a nice left hook from Fedor early on that would have ended it for more than a few.
Fedor showed again that he can win at any time and looked good in all aspects of his game. His hands were quick and powerful, his takedowns relentless, and his sub game aggressive. Good show overall for Strikeforce.

@just some dong
I blame Shields.

@Machineboi Says: And stop dick riding, Fedor did struggle he was in alot of pain at the end of the fight and took a nasty beating in the first round. That was HIS BLOOD ALL OVER THE RING. Its sad I like fedor as a fighter but his fans suck pig cock///

I do not understand where you saw a Nasty beating in the first round...

With the jab that opened the PRE-existing cut on Fedor's nose-- It clearly did not faze Fedor in the least.

Comon man... You have to bear witness correctly now...

I don't know about the "jig" part... but in regards to the "BLOOD ALL OVER THE RING" Everyone knows that Fedor is a bleeder. Rogers could have stepped in the ring with marshmallows for hands and Fedor would have leaked all the same. One decent jab, and Two solid punches (that landed) from the mount do not add up to a "Nasty Beating" The cage did play to Fedor's disadvantage especially when he was about take Roger's arm as a Trophy. Without the cage Roger's would have a first round loss.

It's funny how this was supposed to be Fedor's big "coming out" here in the states, fighting on broadcast TV, yet anyone who DVR'd the fight didn't get to see him. Well done.
Machineboi- November 8, 2009 at 5:06 pm

Who the fuck yall callin a JIG bitch ????..Tough white boys on the internet LMAO!!!

I'm appalled at the Russian Translator though - Fedor wasn't saying that at all. What he was actually saying:

"I'd like to thank God, my wife, M-1 Global, Strikeforce, Brett Rogers...but most of all, I'd like to thank my Sweater of Absolute Victory for once again pulling me through the fight. Goodnight"
KenFlo- November 8, 2009 at 4:11 pm
Fedor struggled..??? Haha...thats funny I remember Grimm being the one struggling. In fact, I remember him struggling to get up after Fedor put that jig to sleep. Next, please.
TrouserSnout- November 8, 2009 at 3:13 pm
WOW...sounds like a jump of Fedor's nuts bandwagon is starting here....LOL....Yes Fedor won...with a nasty knockout...but if you say that Fedor didn't struggle just a bit, your are fuckin blind.

@ J Drews & AkilleeZ
Thank god!!! At least a couple people actually WATCHED the fight.
Rogers is blessed that FEDOR is such an honorable sportsman, because T.L.E. could have put him to sleep with a hand gesture, took a dump on his chest, and then jumped in the crowd an sodomized his wife. That would have been a real reason to get upset.
J Drews- November 8, 2009 at 1:58 pm
I'm with AkilleeZ on this one...
Rogers landed one straight early that busted his nose, and that was IT. Even when he had him mounted and tried to ground and pound, not a single one really connected. Then he almost got caught in an arm bar.
I think because of the fact that Fedor didn't just eat him alive for the whole fight people are quick to say he struggled or he got hurt by Rogers... Not in the least bit.

rogers went in at 8 today(sams club)

and yes shields is indeed a "pussy bitch"
MoshuDragon- November 8, 2009 at 12:16 pm
That's it? The EA MMA game preview showed them running head first at each other, trading perfect blows, performing Rampage-esque slams on one another. I'm disappointed.

There is an option on your DVR to end the recording time later, get with the times man!
Goog- November 8, 2009 at 11:28 am
I was never a Fedor fan, but he gained a point with me last night. I was really hoping Rogers wouldn't be the guy that beats him. He'd be the next Buster Douglas... overhyped and shoved in people's faces until the next fight where he'd lose and go to the back of the line again. And he got a bit cocky for my liking. But the best part was them calling Rogers the "knockout artist" and calling that his best weapon.... only to have it go the other way and he got KTFO. An armbar would've just had people saying Fedor got lucky and didn't match power with Rogers. So I love that the undefeated KO artist got KO'd for his first loss.
se7ensenses- November 8, 2009 at 11:20 am
I wonder how the ratings were for the fight? I'm curious to see them compared to the infamous Griffin vs. Bonnar numbers.
AkilleeZ- November 8, 2009 at 11:14 am
I can't believe people are saying Fedor struggled.

He took some good licks to the face, yes, especially while he was on the ground. Did he ever show signs of being hurt, though? NO. Did he ever show signs of losing his cool? NO. Did he ever stop defending himself? NO. He recovered quickly, and continued to dominate.

That said, Brett Rogers fought well. There's only so much you can do against Fedor. He could fight Fedor 1000 times with 1000 different game plans and I would be surprised if he won a single match.
Nippletwist- November 8, 2009 at 11:01 am

bwahaha somebody needs to call a waahmbulance for grim, that post fight interview was retarded

fedor is a super freak he took such hard shots when he was on his back and didn't even look hurt and every time he touched rogers with a punch it almost dropped him

where does strikeforce find these retard announcers? they have annoying voices, small vocabularies, dumb analogys and seem to know very little about the sport. and that post-fight interviewer too, guy could barely form a sentence. wtf, you're hiring a guy and his only job is to speak, why not hire a journalist or something? who are these fucktards?
