Brett Rogers Shows Respect For Fedor, Wants To Take Strikeforce Belt From Alistair Overeem

Brett Rogers is back at the gym training for any future opponent Strikeforce gives him.  He is coming off a KO loss to Fedor Emelianenko, but seems pretty eager to step in the cage as soon as possible.  In a recent interview, Rogers finally admits that Fedor is the “best heavyweight in the world” and shares his thoughts on current Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem.

From Brett Rogers:

“[Fedor Emelianenko] is certainly the best heavyweight in the world. But he does have weaknesses. We all do – isn’t that what makes champions great — they win even with weaknesses? They win even though they can be beat? He is not a machine…. I want to fight soon, and I want to fight Alistair. I’m 100% healthy and took zero damage in the fight; so I’m ready to go right now. As I said Strikeforce is my home; I love Strikeforce and in my opinion Alistair holding the title belt is an insult to every fighter in this organization, every fan and to Scott Coker. Champions defend their titles. And either Scott strips him and real fighters battle for it; or I will take it off him the hard way.”
