Fedor Emelianenko will fight Brett Rogers sometime in late October or early November in a heavyweight bout for the American-based "StrikeForce" promotion. The undefeated and cocky black fighter Rogers has claimed that he will knock out Fedor. Rogers also claimed that Fedor has a tendency to get "sloppy" and that he will take advantage of this. Rogers has a punchers chance, but Fedor is better than him in every aspect of the MMA game. Hopefully Fedor takes him down and ground and pounds Rogers into submission. If the "great black hope" does defeat Fedor the media, especially white-hater Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports, will be estatic.
It goes without saying that I will be rooting for Fedor. Even if he does win his victory will do little to silence his critics. Until Fedor fights in the UFC there will be some who will deny his greatness.
