Josh Barnett def. Brett Rogers by Submission (arm triangle) at 1:11 in Round 2

Barnett showed why his version of catch wrestling is, when used effectively, is one of the best fighting styles in the world. Barnett dominated Rogers on the ground and got him to tap to an arm triangle choke in the second round.

Rogers got things started with a leg kick, and Barnett immediately shot inside for a takedown. Showing impressive strength, Barnett picked Rogers up and slammed him to the ground, ending up in side control and eventually transitioning to full mount. Rogers looked like a fish out of water on the ground, and Barnett looked like he was right inside his own comfort zone. Rogers survived the round without taking much punishment.

At the start of the second Barnett took it to the ground again, in full mount, again. Once Barnett sunk in the choke, Rogers tapped quickly.

Now Barnett is scheduled to take on Sergei Kharitonov in the second round of the heavyweight tournament.

i used to see Roger as a street fighter type that just goes in for a knockout in 30 seconds. but the last fight i seen him fight that Indian dude in Canada, Roger seems gassed at everything. did his killer instinct go down because he is trying to be more of a rounded fighter? i think so. Roger, stick to your roots and just chance it. who knows you might get lucky. i just don't think he has the gas tank to be a well rounded MMA fighter which requires a lot of cardio endurance.

jimbobyeaboy - I don't see how anyone could pick Rogers in this. Sure he has a punchers chance but I think Josh's ground game will be too much for him. <img src="/images/phone/post_tag.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>

No disrespect to Josh, but its not like he's been beating top competition for the past few years. His last big win was over Rodrigo, wasn't it?  That had to be almost five years ago.

I wouldn't be surprised if Rogers overwhelms him.  He's a young fighter who is still learning -- it's very possible that he's taken something away from his losses and upped his game.

That's a pretty lame as picture they posted for Barnett , compared to Rogers that is. I think that Barnett's reputation has been irreversibly tarnished by his shameless use of steroids , he'll probably get mauled like Carwin , other then that he's probably the more skilled of the two fighters. Wrestling will prove worthwhile in this case and hopefully he utilizes it.

I wonder if Rogers will shock the world. 95% chance Barnett will beat him but Rogers could KO him.
