Speaking exclusively to CageReport Heavyweight contender Brett 'The Grim' Rogers gave his thoughts on his upcoming clash with the man widely regarded as the number one heavyweight in MMA, Fedor Emelianenko. Brett Rogers last entered the cage in June against Andrei Arlovski, 22 seconds later and Rogers emerged the victor by way of technical Knockout, instantly establishing himself as a top contender in the Heavyweight division.
Although sporting a perfect 10-0 record, many questions are still unanswered regarding the ground skills of Brett Rogers which he assures will not be a factor in the fight:
"I've been working hard on my wrestling and ground skills so even if it does end up on the ground, I'll just scramble to my feet and continue to pick him apart"
"The main difference between me and him is that he will come out looking for a quick submission where as I'm going to be looking to knock his head into the 8th row. Don't get me wrong I respect him as a fighter, but he'll respect me even more when I lay it on him and knock him out."
