Remember when Brett Rogers' star was on the rise? When he was going to be the next Strikeforce heavyweight stud? That was 2009.
Since starting off 10-0 with nine knockouts, Rogers lost in the second round to Fedor Emelianenko, then got a title shot against Alistair Overem and lost in the first round. In October 2010, Rogers beat Ruben Villareal at a W-1 event in Canada.
Now, Rogers takes on Josh Barnett in the quarterfinal round of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix tournament this Saturday in Dallas (Showtime, 10 p.m.). Here's his "I am a fighter" promo from Showtime.
