Brett Rogers Meets Ruben Villareal at W-1 Event
It's confirmed! The Grim is crossing the Warpath's way in Canada this coming Octiber 23 at the W-1: New Ground. Will this be a successful rebound on the ring, or will this be another breakdown?
Strikeforce fighter Brett “The Grim” Rogers will compete against Ruben “Warpath” Villareal at the W-1: New Ground Show on October 23, at the Halifax Forum in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The organization reported recently a 11-bout fight card for the upcoming event, and confirmed that Rogers is permitted to rebound from a pair of losses at the match.
Rogers got his two-consecutive losses — the first in his fighting career — against Fedor Emelianenko via second-round TKO loss, followed by Alistair Overeem through first-round TKO. But prior to that, the Strikeforce fighter went 10-0 stoppages by way of strike. All of them — except one — ended in the first round.
On the one hand, “Warpath” have fought with organization ranging from Strikeforce to KOTC to Gladiator Challenge. His three-fight winning streak was put to an end against Mike Cook by submission. Despite a sub. -500 career mark, Villareal have fought MMA notables like Ricco Rodriguez, Don Frye, Antonio Silva, Bas Rutten, Tim Hague, Paul Buentello and Dan Severn.View Article Source »
