Brett Rogers & Fedor Emelianenko

I’m going to knock him out. He’s going to give me his chin, somehow, someway. He’s going to get sloppy with that overhand right that he loves to do or he’ll try to shoot in for a takedown, and I’ll catch him with either a knee or an uppercut … something. I’m going to drop him. I want the crowd to go (gasp). I want to get that reaction out of people. So I can’t wait…I definitely feel that it’s destiny, man…I’m God then. I’m the God of MMA. I’ll become the God of MMA, right? Isn’t that how it goes? I’m the soul snatcher; I’m the grim. I’ll take all his wins and put them under my belt, and then everybody can just hush up.

I tell you what, if Brett Rogers knocks out Fedor, he just might become the god of MMA. Would that not be the biggest upset in the history of the sport? Bigger than Serra knocking out GSP?
