Dana White: Brock Lesnar would smash Fedor Emelianenko

Props: LA Times


"CBS would be out of their mind to put that rinky-dink [Strikeforce] . . . on the air again ... and without that backing, [promoters] won't have the money to pay [Emelianenko]. 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 [Fedor] in, to see Brock Lesnar smash his head."

UFC President Dana White has some unkind words for the CBS broadcast of "Saturday Night Fights." The event featured a main event of Brett Rogers taking on Fedor Emelianenko and while "The Grim" was hanging tough, ultimately fell to an overhand right from the "Last Emperor." White was not impressed with either fighter, claiming Zuffa champ Brock Lesnar would "smash" the Russian -- and also suggesting fellow heavyweights Frank Mir and Cain Velasquez would do likewise against Brett Rogers. Anyone want to take a guess at the outcome of Strikeforce putting their top three heavyweights against the three best 265-pounders the UFC has to offer?
