#1 MMA/P4P Champion Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko fights Brett “The Grim” Rogers @ Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers from the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Ill.
Fedor Emelianenko doesn’t talk trash about his opponents, and he won’t be starting now. After his autograph session yesterday afternoon, Fedor told Ariel Helwani that he sees Brett Rogers as a great opponent with “very heavy knockout punch.” And he doesn’t even get pissed off when Ariel brings up the argument that he signed with Strikeforce to duck the top competition in the UFC: “I do not read all the rumors and gossips which they publish on the Internet, but to tell the truth, the offer of the UFC was really not the worthy one, and if they are able to give us really good offer, we definitely would agree.” Finally, Fedor rejects the notion that he has anything to prove against Rogers.
As for the Grim? He’s just enjoying the ride…
