Brian Rogers Looking For Tournament Success in Bellator

February 14, 2013 | Posted by Larry Csonka

– Brian Rogers recently spoke about fighting in another Bellator tournament. Here are the highlights…

On Hi Goals For This Tournament: “I’m just focused on winning the first round like I have in the past and then getting the monkey off my back in the semifinals.”

On a Possible rematch With Andreas Spang: “Ideally it’d be great for the fans and for myself,” he said. “There’s no way he can watch that fight. He landed one solid shot, and it was good enough. It dropped me, and the ref called it. It is what it is, and I can’t take anything away from him. But I think he’s a fairly intelligent guy, and if he watchers that film, he’s going to see his ass getting kicked for most of it.

“… So it’d be nice a nice revenge thing.”

On Tonight’s Fight With Dan Cramer: “I think Dan’s at an extreme disadvantage athletically and skill wise,” Rogers said. “He’s a grinder, and I think he’s going to try to make it a brawl and try to catch me with a wild punches. He doesn’t really throw loopy punches, but he kind of blitzes. He’ll look to push me against the fence and clinch, and he’s got pretty good ground and pound and top game. But I don’t think he’ll stand in the middle and stand with me. If he tries to make this a boxing or kickboxing match, he’s going to lose.”
