Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers have tipped the scales inside the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. Rogers will look to make himself a legit player in the heavyweight division while Fedor has a chance to once again solidify himself as the top heavyweight in MMA.
The stacked card also features Fedor’s training partner and Strikeforce light heavyweight champ, Gegard Mousasi, taking on former UFC/Pride veteran Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou in a non-title affair.
Former EliteXC welterweight champion Jake Shields will also look to nab the Strikeforce middleweight title against Jason “Mayhem” Miller in the night’s co-main event.
