Brett Rogers Trainer Says Alistair Overeem In Scared Of Him

Mike Reiley, trainer to Brett Rogers talks to MMA Fan House concerning his belief that Alistair Overeem took a bout with Fabricio Werdum on August 15th because he is scared of Rogers:

“I don’t think Overeem was ever planning on fighting Brett. I think Overeem is afraid of (him). He’s afraid of a big striker who is going to knock him out. … I don’t think anyone is going to admit that, but I’m not going to shy away from it. He’s had two opportunities to fight Brett but he hasn’t taken either of him. If you are under 250 pounds right now, just forget about fighting Brett Rogers because all that is going to happen is that you are going to get your head spun around.”
