    Not sure why people rate Rogers as being one of the top HW fighters. He is a big guy with heavy hands, but he's fought mainly nobodies and then James Thompson, who is not a very good heavyweight for his size and experience, as well as Andrei Arlovski, who is known for having a weak chin.

    He would be butchered by any real top heavyweight.

    Why do you say that? He's yet to be really tested but I haven't seen any massive hole in his game (partly because he hasn't been in the cage long enough in any of his fights that I've seen). He's in pretty much the exact same position as Shane Carwin, record wise, exact that Carwin was actually in a fight during his one-round demolition of a top ten heavyweight whereas Rogers just brutalised Arlovski.

    Exactly. The man has "one trick pony" written all over him - He hits people in the face, hard. You need more than that to be able to hang at the very, very top.

    I mean, look at the Thompson fight. Thompson is a man who throws wild bombs. This is all he does. And Thompson STILL outwrestled Rogers with his shitty, shitty wrestling, taking him down twice without being able to do anything with the takedowns until Rogers scored with some slow-ass hooks that TKOed him.

    Rumour has it he's going to be fighting Fedor sometime soon. I expect a very short fight in which Brett Rogers gets removed from any top 10 lists in existence, gravely embarrassing those who hailed him as a potential Lesnar-Slayer. If Rogers ever amounts to anything at the top, I will be surprised.

    I do like his haircut, though.

    Yeah, cause that's what Fedor would look like in a body stocking... :-/

    The hair's probably a wig.

    Brett Rogers is an undefeated heavyweight who ran through a guy the gave Fedor problems (for a few minutes anyway). He's dealt with pressure well, and has only just begun to take up MMA as a full time job. I can see the point that he's not a top 10 heavyweight yet, but pay respect to what he's accomplished. If he gets his fight with Overeem, he'll smash him too, and then he'll be legit top 10.

    I give the best chances to rogers, carwin, and fedor.

    I'd go even further than ape, and opt for freak-o-nature Hong-Man Choi; the man with a spam more expansive than my back, and a cranium seemingly forged out of mammoth bone.
