Cain Velasquez grappled with Brett Rogers and there's video of it

Cain Velasquez grappled with Brett Rogers and there's video of it

Cain Velasquez attended Arizona State University, which already places him at a disadvantage in the Frate Trane list. Any Wildcat would understand, it's only business. However, for the sake of keeping everything at a warm equilibrium on MiddleEasy, I'll pretend like he tried to enrolled into the University of Arizona, but slightly messed up his college entrance application.

Most of you are unaware that the UFC heavyweight champion started his MMA career in Strikeforce, and for some bizarre reason, Scott Coker decided to let him go. In an alternate universe somewhere on the edge of a forgotten timeline, Cain Velasquez became the Strikeforce heavyweight champion, was the first person to defeat Fedor, and defended his belt against Brett Rogers. In that same universe, chicken wings and blue cheese don't exist, so it still has its flaws.

Since that didn't actually happen, the closest thing we have to Cain Velasquez vs. Brett Rogers is this video of the two grappling. Check it out.

While I'm no Rogers fan, I thought I'd point that that he is, after all, grappling with the UFC Heavyweight Champion.

Cain reaction to the bell at the end was like " WTF?? I'm not done yet!"

Cain should have been rougher on him. I would have loved to see some knee on belly to knee on face action!
