For you fans that have been anxiously awaiting the official “Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery” trailer, do I have some good news for you!
The Showtime broadcast will be jumping off inside the Scottrade Center in St Louis, Missouri on May 15th. The card features the heavyweight title bout between champ Alistair Overeem and Brett Rogers.
Overeem holds a dominant 32-11 MMA record, however this will mark his first Strikeforce appearance since whooping Paul Buentello to capture the open heavyweight title back in November 2007.
He’s since fought outside of the promotion on seven separate occasions.
Although fans are pleased Overeem will actually defend his crown for a change, it’s a precarious move by Strikeforce considering Rogers is coming off his first career defeat.
Rogers stakes claim to a 10-1 professional record and has finished in all of his wins. Unfortunately, Rogers attempted the highly ineffective face-to-fist defense against Fedor Emelianenko in his last bout and wound up paying dearly for it.
