Quotes from Strikeforce's open workout

source: thefightnetwork.com

Brett Rogers:

“Back home, I’ve got family that is dependent on me and fans that are pulling for me.  I’ve also got to represent Ambition MMA so I just got to go out there and do work.  I’m not in this game for fun.”

On Andrei Arlovski, his opponent Saturday:  “I used to watch him when I was in school, but I have to push that to the side and say, ‘You know what, I’m not a fan of Arlovski anymore. I can fight this guy.  His chin is definitely getting weak. He kind of exposes himself. He likes to lead first and then come with the punch.

Joe Riggs:

“This is going to be a great fight for me.  I’ve said it before - I’m in the best shape of my life.”

“This is a fight that everyone around me has wanted for me for a long time.  It never happened because we were always fighting for different promotions or in different weigh classes.  Now, we are both fighting for Strikeforce, so it’s on.”

Frank Shamrock:

“We had a lot of educated, hardcore MMA fans out there today.  One dude busted out a 20 year old magazine with me in it so that was pretty cool to see.”

“It’s definitely an “A” level card – blow out material.  Everyone I’ve talked to is super-excited for it.”

Well, a lot of people have already been saying his chin was weak for years.I've always thought he lacked heart and toughness more than having a glass jaw.I thought he just rolled over and quit in the second Sylvia fight(unlike Sylvia who didn't give up after he was rocked moments earlier) and didn't even try to survive to attempt a recovery.He quit after his nose was busted in the Rizzo fight.He kind of reminds of Gonzaga or Gonzaga reminds me of him. Whatever.But he just suffered a lights out KO a few months ago.I think it's fair for Rogers to say that his chin might even be weaker now. Not "definitely" for sure. But it's not a stretch to speculate that and it's probably a pretty good confidence booster for somebody as untested as Rogers.

"His chin is definitely getting weak."So Arlovski is shot now? He's the same he has always been.Im interested in seeing Diaz tear shit up again.
