UFC President Dana White has a long history of shooting from his hip and letting the world know exactly where he stands on the issues. Staying true to form, the outspoken face of the UFC recently had some interesting remarks in regards to Fedor Emelianenko‘s TKO victory over Brett Rogers during this past Saturday’s Strikeforce broadcast on CBS.
In a recent conversation with the L.A. Times, White had this to say, “The guy just got his face smashed in by Brett Rogers. Do you know what Brock or [UFC heavyweights] Frank Mir and Cain Velasquez would do to Brett Rogers?
“It’s time to bring this guy [Fedor] in, to see Brock Lesnar smash his head.”
Personally, I don’t know what Lesnar, Mir, and particularly Cain Velasquez would do to a guy like Brett Rogers, because they’ve never fought. To make the assumption that Rogers, who utterly embarrassed a former UFC champion in Andrei Arlovski recently, would just have his lunch money taken from him at the hands of a still developing Velasquez just reeks of a promoter doing his job, and doing it well.
As far as Lesnar smashing Fedor’s head is concerned, if it’s the same kind of smashing White claims Fedor received at the hands of Rogers where the 260+ pound knockout artist wound up flat on his back, it would likely be a smashing Fedor is willing to take.
