I don't know exactly where he ranks, but after tonight I'd give him a decent shot at almost anyone on that list.

A.A is the only person on that whole list ive heard of.

Should be. I mean, just look at this carnage:

That GIF looks exactly like Machida Evans ending. Rogers' Shotokan style is impossible to defend against.

Top twenty or top 15 for sure and with a win over Overeem next would be top ten imo.

 Timmy would kick his ass.

Tim Sylvia would destroy this guy, seriously

Brett would not get past his jab

Kansas Comet - Top twenty or top 15 for sure and with a win over Overeem next would be top ten imo.


Why would he be top 10 for beating Overeem, who isn't even a top 20 HW IMO, but when he KOs a long time top 10 HW in Arlovski, he isn't?

Don't get me wrong, Overeem is a beast. But he hasn't done anything relevant in MMA besides kneeing Mirko's balls to death.

grim rulzzzzzz

ding ding ding!!! but i give roggers his due, top ten? idk but he will a force soon, im thinking without being worried about how to pay the bills and being able to train full time he will become very dangerous for any top ten hw

I am not of the school of thought/rankings that skyrocket guys up the rankings with one big win. But a Arlovski win an by KO is big, coupled with a win over Overeem (who is borderline top ten) would imo put Rogers in the top ten.

kinda tough...HW division is weak, but now that we are no longer joking about arlovski's chin and seriously believe he can't take any decent punches , I think that kinda takes Brett Rogers off the top 10, he's definitely top 15 though, kinda like Carwin. Gonzaga is a good opponent, and carwin beat him, but , at the same time gonzaga has really devalued. so as a result I keep Carwin off the top 10.

I just wanna see Rogers face someone who can take a punch and has decent ground skills. Although Overeem doesn't have the greatest chin in the world, it is better than AA's, and is a physical specimen that would really test Rogers in every department.

 Brett Rogers is a Wing Chun practitioner, but the asian arts can look deceptively similar to the layman.

VectorWega -  Top 10 lists are stupid.  Most of the guys in the top 10 have little to no potential.  Top 10 lists are based on past achievements, but in a weight class that is quickly evolving, past achievements don't mean a whole hell of a lot.
