Strikeforce StLouis Poster Heavy Artillary May 15

With less than five days until the curtain is drawn on “Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery,” the San Jose, CA based organization finally released the complete roster for this Saturday’s event.

The Showtime broadcast will be jumping off inside the Scottrade Center in St Louis, Missouri. 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.

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.

Preliminary Bouts:

Darryl Cobb vs. Booker DeRousse
Matt Ricehouse vs. Greg Wilson
Tom Aaron vs. Erik Steenberg
Mike Chandler vs. Sal Woods
Lee Brousseau vs. Fransisco “Kiko” France
Lyle Beerbohm vs. Vitor Ribeiro
Justin DeMoney vs. Jesse Finney

Main Bouts:

Antwain Britt vs. Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante
Roger Gracie vs. Kevin Randleman
Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza vs. Joey Villasenor
Andrei Arlovski vs. Antonio Silva
Brett Rogers vs. Alistair Overeem (Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion)
