Brett Rogers Wants Rematch With Fedor Emelianenko

Brett Rogers tasted defeat for the first time in his career, as he was TKO’d by Fedor Emelianenko in the second round of their bout tonight at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers. Immediately after the fight, a flustered Rogers admitted to not taking his first loss well.

“I hate it!,” he responded, when asked how he was feeling. “I’m coming back stronger. I’m so heated, I can’t put it to words.”

When Emelianenko was asked after the bout if he would give Rogers a rematch, Fedor noted that he would if Rogers wanted it. Rogers wasted no time in sharing his thoughts on a potential rematch.

“If he wants to rematch me, I would gladly take that rematch,” he said.

Rogers felt that his main weakness in the fight was doubting himself.

“What I did see was me doubting myself,” Rogers explained. “I should have thrown my hands a lot more. If I would have thrown my hands more, it would have ended a lot different.”

With the loss, Rogers falls to 10-1, still an enviable record.
