Where Does Brett Rogers Go From Here?

Originally posted on

Brett Rogers (10-0 MMA, #9 IWMMAR) is one of the rising stars in the heavyweight division. With ten wins and ten finishes, all by strikes, The Grimm has put himself in a position to move up the ladder in a division that has a great deal of talent on the open market.

His win over former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei “The Pitbull” Arlovski (15-7 MMA, 10-4 UFC, #10 IWMMAR), one of the most visible and most popular heavyweights in the western world, legitimized Rogers in the minds of many fans, and certainly demonstrated that his hands have world class power, regardless of the technical striking ability of the opposition. He destroyed Arlvoski, who was widely considered the most technical striker and the heavy favorite, in 22 seconds.

Only going past the first round twice (once in a bout that had significantly less than five minute rounds), Rogers has never really been in deep waters and, only in his fight with Abongo Humphrey (5-1 MMA) did Rogers really look like he was in danger of being taken out.

While we never got to see Rogers take on Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson (3-1 MMA), we will certainly see more of Rogers now that he’s in the Strikeforce promotion. What remains to be seen, though, is who Brett is going to fight next.
