Fedor Emelianenko knocked out Brett Rogers tonight in the second round of their MMA fight in Chicago:
AOL’s Michael David Smith:
Rogers connected with Fedor early and made him bleed from the nose, and he more than acquitted himself in the fight, getting control of Fedor on the ground and looking better against Fedor than any opponent has in the last few years.
But there’s only one Fedor, and in the second round, he showed why he’s the greatest ever, leveling Rogers with a brutal right hand and then a couple more punches on the ground before referee Big John McCarthy stepped in to save Rogers.

Fedor vs. Lesnar? It’s out there. Will happen eventually regardless of the faux hurdles thrown up by MMA media observers. Too much money to eventually be made.
