Brett Rogers says that Fedor has never fought someone as good as him

Brett Rogers is still relatively unknown to casual MMA fans, but he's fighting Fedor Emelianenko, known as arguably the best pound for pound fighter in the world. He had some pretty strong words, in his pre-fight interview with Fanhouse:

"I think he's one of the best, looking at his record and his history he's definitely great. But he's facing a new, improved heavyweight: He hasn't fought anyone like me. The way I see it, he hasn't been tested the way I'm about to test him."

I'm not sure I'd agree with that, since Fedor has beaten legends like Mirko Cro Cop and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in their prime. Rogers has heavy hands, but I haven't seen anything else yet from him that makes me believe he'll be any more of a threat than anyone else.
