This past weekend, Strikeforce held a main event clash between Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers. The heavyweight superstar Fedor proved once again why he is still considered the no.1 heavyweight fighter in the world when he knocked out Rogers with a devastating right punch in the second round.
In the eyes of many MMA fans, Fedor is still the best fighter in the world but in the eyes of UFC President Dana White, it’s a totally different story. In fact, White believes that Rogers would never be a threat to any of his top UFC heavyweights including Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez and current UFC champion Brock Lesnar. He even stated that Fedor would get his head smashed by Brock Lesnar. Hmmm, could this really be true?
Snip from Dana White:
“CBS would be out of their mind to put that rinky-dink [Strikeforce] . . . on the air again … and without that backing, [promoters] won’t have the money to pay [Emelianenko]. The guy just got his face smashed in by Brett Rogers. Do you know what Brock or [UFC heavyweights] Frank Mir and Cain Velasquez would do to Brett Rogers? It’s time to bring [Fedor] in, to see Brock Lesnar smash his head.”
