Quoteworthy:

"[Brett] took about a week off but that's it. We are already making preparations for his next fight and have started his training program. Brett didn't suffer any injuries during that fight so there is no reason not to get him right back in the cage training again. That was another frustrating thing about the fight in that Brett suffered no damage. I remember being in the locker room and telling him that I should hit him with something so it looks like he was actually in a fight. If we were able to round up 10,000 more people on short notice Brett would be able to have a rematch today. His puppy does more damage to him than he sustained in the fight ... Whoever Strikeforce decides to give us whether it is Fabricio Werdum, (Antonio) Silva or (Alistair) Overeem we will take it."

Team Bison's Mike Reilly, head trainer for Strikeforce heavyweight Brett Rogers, is ready to send his star pupil right back into battle following his TKO loss to WAMMA champ Fedor Emelianenko in the main event of "Saturday Night Fights" back on Nov. 7 in Hoffman Estates, IL. Reilly contends that things were looking "Grim" for "The Last Emperor" until the Russian took advantage of the tentative striking offered by Rogers, crushing him with a right hand to finish the fight in the second round. Now that the dust has settled, the former tire mechanic is ready to get right back to work. Any fantasy matchmakers want to take a stab at his next opponent?
