Brett Rogers on Andrei Arlovski: “I’m not going into this fight to try and be bouncey-bouncey with him.”

There is little doubt the upcoming ”Strikeforce: Lawler vs. Shields” event on June 6 should feature more than one knockout given bouts featuring Scott Smith, Nick Diaz, Phil Baroni, headliner Robbie Lawler, and a number of other hard-hitting mixed martial artists. Two men more-than familiar with rendering opponents unconscious who will be facing each other that night, Andrei Arlovski and Brett Rogers, offered their thoughts on throwing down in St. Louis during a conference call to media.

The imposing 9-0 “Grim” made it clear that while he was excited about fighting someone with Arlovski’s credentials, he was also making sure to keep his focus squarely on the task at hand.

“Things are great,” said Rogers. ”I’m just getting ready for next week. This is definitely going to be a step up in class. Arlovski has been in the game for quite some time. He has plenty of experience. Those are the type of fighters I’m trying to fight from here on out. For me, now, it’s about building respect. I feel like I don’t have it, so fighting Arlovski is going to be a fun and challenging event on June 6.
