rogers by flying triangle 3rd round

Rogers by less fatness

 A nice leglock would be sweet.

Barnett by experience

Rodgers via TKO Phone Post

i used to see Roger as a street fighter type that just goes in for a knockout in 30 seconds. but the last fight i seen him fight that Indian dude in Canada, Roger seems gassed at everything. did his killer instinct go down because he is trying to be more of a rounded fighter? i think so. Roger, stick to your roots and just chance it. who knows you might get lucky. i just don't think he has the gas tank to be a well rounded MMA fighter which requires a lot of cardio endurance.

jimbobyeaboy - I don't see how anyone could pick Rogers in this. Sure he has a punchers chance but I think Josh's ground game will be too much for him. <img src="/images/phone/post_tag.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>

^^ I just picked Rodgers for the hell of it... Phone Post

Rogers is out of his league in this one, hoping to see a crazy leglock.
I see Josh taking this tourney. Phone Post

No disrespect to Josh, but its not like he's been beating top competition for the past few years. His last big win was over Rodrigo, wasn't it?  That had to be almost five years ago.



I wouldn't be surprised if Rogers overwhelms him.  He's a young fighter who is still learning -- it's very possible that he's taken something away from his losses and upped his game.
