"I look into his eyes and I see nothing. I don't see if he's serious. I don't see if he's trying to be funny. I can't sense anything from him. A lot of people say, 'Don't pay attention to his demeanor because it will psyche you out.' It's true. I feel that."
That's Brett Rogers describing his thoughts as he looked into the eyes of Fedor Emelianenko, his opponent on Saturday night. It's a far cry from some of his other statements that have come from Rogers as they fight was approaching. I wonder if the myth and aura of Fedor Emelianenko is causing self-doubt to creep into the thought process of a once confident Brett Rogers the closer it gets to Saturday night?
