    Roger is a submission EXPERT. I hoped that he had signed with the UFC because the UFC Heavyweight Division is basically wrestlers and stand-up guys. Minitauro and Mir are the only submission guys there. This guy has a way to go, being that he has only 2 MMA fights but once he improves his standup, he is gonna be a force.
