Bellator 50 Brian Rogers Vs. Victor O'Donnell: Full Fight


By Matt Leyshock - Posted on 18 September 2011

Props to IFI

Brian Rogers took out Victor O'Donnell tonight in a dramatic first round TKO.  Some are calling it an early stoppage, when I watched it live I felt it was a good call.  What do you think?

i think brian should be in the ufc and is wasting his time and career with this stupid bellator shit. he's better than bellator.

Stoppage was a little quick in my opinion, but I've seen a lot worse.

Not trying to justify the stoppage, but in the ref's defense, every one of BRog's hammer fists landed flush on Victor's jaw. The referee is supposed to keep both men safe in the cage, and I think he thought he was doing just that, even though I don't agree with the stoppage.

I've had a big name fighter tell me in the past that stoppages like that are okay in ammy MMA, but when there's that kind of money ($100,000 to the winner of this tournament) involved, let the fighters decide the bout. 

Congrats to Rogers and here's to hoping O'Donnell gets another shot on the big stage. 

Victor is back in for season 6 tournament and we all know Rogers wont get past shlemenko so as a close friend and training partner we are already preparing a rematch and I promise the game plan isn't going to be finishing Rogers but to beat him down for 3 rounds. Rogers is such a coward and for him to be a teacher he showed an unclassy way to be a role model. Calling out florida and giving the crowd the finger... mark my words ...we are already preparing for Rogers. Brian Rogers should be ashamed of himself. Shlemenko will submit Rogers ... he is a one dimensional fighter

Definitely not "flicking off" anyone. This sign is standard procedure for pros who frequent the UG much like Brian Rogers.  As for the stoppage, obviously it is the ref's call and not Rogers decision.

You can say what you want about My fighting ability and the dec. However, you don't know me at all so please do not question my character. as another posted stated that was sign for the Ug Aka the underground , mixedmartialarts.com . I did that to show appreciation for the fans who post on that website. If was a coward I wouldn't of taken the time out to tall to Victor after the fight and I wouldn't have said what I did on the mic and to him in private. I think you should talk to Victor before you make personal comments about me. In every interview I did before the fight I was more than respectable to victor . I have a ton of respect for not only Victor , but Daniel Strauss , Roger Bowling and the team itself .

I'm not really sure what else to say.

WOW, why hate the fighter when the ref is the one who stopped the fight. Brian trained hard and came to fight. Put the shoe on the other foot and I bet you'd be singing a different tune. Brian is an AWESOME role model to everyone who knows him and I am proud to call him a friend. Mark my words...Brian Rogers is the real deal. Good Luck in Atlantic City B-Rog!!! I know you'll make us proud.

Not sure how Rogers is a coward. He did what he had to do, and thats to just fight. Any beef you have with the decision, that all on the referee. It sounds like you are the one that has been phased the most by the stoppage. Brian even gave your boy props, said he was surprised by stoppage, and hyped up a big rematch to bjorn. His flipping off the croud comment by you is further evidence of your ignorant discontentment. He was giving the underground sign from mma.tv. His username is Flawless Victory, and his flashing the sign was his way, as is to all the fighters who frequent the underground, to show love to the them. Go to mma.tv, there are comments all over the board. I think the stoppage hurt both fighters. Its sucks to think what if, if you are victor. And it sucks for brian, as it give fuel to people like you to discredit him for no reason whatsoever. Your comments in no way should reflect or represent any ounce of poor sportsmanship by odonell. great fight to both fighters. Odonell will come back strong. Good luck brian, I hope you win so victor can say he lost to the eventual champ.

Sincerely,

A Odonell and Rogers fan

Good post and I agree completely. And if the crowd don't want taunted don't boo a guy before he even has a chance to speak his mind. I was laughing my ASS off when he called them out. It was completely justified and I'm glad he had the balls to do it.

O'Donnell did get screwed no doubt about that, but it wasn't by Rodgers.
