He has been training mma for over 6 years. Has shown that he has talent and determination and ever improving skills in all aspects of mma. He is not comparable to kimbo. He is faster, stronger, hits harder and faster than kimbo. Why should he be fighting kimbo? Have u actually seen any of his fights? all 10 victories have come in the first round or early 2nd (only 2 second round) He has a win over aa. had a very compelling fight with fedor and while aside from that he hasnt fought as many tough fights like top hw's in the ufc, he has dominated all of his opponents showing great skill and talent. He will fight in the UFC some day and potentially could be a top contender. His fight with overeem will anwser a lot of questions as well. Why do u not consiter him a martial artist, or are you just saying that to be cute b/c of what gsp said?!?

I probably shouldnt be responding to this. Are you saying that it is impossible for Rogers to be a martial artist? He clearly has skill, talent and athletic ability that any fighter would want, and dedication to improve himself and become something. Comparing your dumbass self trying to do something impossible to a talented skilled rogers becoming a martial artist is one of the dumbest things iv heard on mma forums and that is saying a lot.
I dont think he is on the level with a jds, but his striking is more advanced than carwins or lesnars, he has proven that he has power and speed as well. He is similar to jds in that regard and will be a top contender some day IMHO.
