MMA Fanhouse spoke with 10-0 undefeated Brett “The Grim” Rogers on the heels of the announcement that he will be fighting Fedor Emelianenko sometime this fall in a Strikeforce / M-1 Global co-promotion.
Whatever you may think of Rogers, one thing is certain. If he defeats Emelianenko, his life will change forever. “I’m God then. I’m the God of MMA. I’ll become the God of MMA, right? Isn’t that how it goes,” Rogers redundantly asked. “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.”
Rogers has the drive to be number one. He has that drive to be the champion. He has purpose and that extra something that separates him from mediocrity. “There’s no other reason but to fight the best,” said Rogers. “I don’t fight for fun. I fight for the title; I fight for the money, and the respect. That’s me, and a lot of folks need to know that. I don’t care to just get in and have fun.”
