Fedor v., Rogers in Strikeforce
Just saw that Strikeforce announced Fedor's first fight will be against Rogers, in early November/late October. My assumption here is twofold: a) they want Fedor to expose himself - and not like Volcom does, mind you - to a mainstream audience before vying for the title, and; b) allow Overeem to recuperate fully and have one more match prior to fighting Fedor. Thoughts?

Nice ! Will go to the ground quick and Fedor wins by armbar or GnP me thinks .
Also , is Allistair going to be allowed to fight again ? Didn't he KO some woman at one of his training sessions ? No legal trouble over that ?

"Rogers, who worked at Sam's Club until recently, is a Rocky Balboa story"
Do you guys know if Strikeforce will be showing all their fights on Showtime like they did with Cyborg/Carano?

Sam's club??? Damn my eyes. Could have sworn it was some auto part store. Well hell Sam's is shT ton more sophisticated. I owe him an apology.

He got into a bar fight in Holland a few months back, along with his brother who is also a damn good fighter. He broke it and I think there was an infection afterward.
It'll be interesting to see how Rogers does against Fedor. They both like to crowd and explode on their opponents, but, of course, Fedor is much better in the TD/grappling component. In terms of sheer KO power, I give the nod to Rogers. However, I really doubt that Fedor will give him enough time to really get set and find his range.

boy with this challenge I can see why Fedor went to strike force
seriously, I am going to be rooting hard for Rogers, as outside of maybe Overeem, there is nothing of a challenge for Fedor in Strikeforce. It is just such a shame that it came to this fight.

Rogers did work at Sams club, but I think he was in the tire changing section b/c he talks about just throwing and rolling tires around all day. Fedor is gonna destroy him standing up most likely, Rogers has zero head movement. Maybe if one of them closes the distance then Fedor will probably hip toss him and then GNP.

If Rodgers KO's Fedor MMA takes a super dooper blow. Would of been better if Fedor fought someone like Couture or Lesnar.

I cant post links yet, but about 6:21 into the rogers v andrei video on youtube is priceless! lmao.... I didnt really understand it though.

A guy at my work said that not only will this fight be 3 rounds instead of 5, but that the WAMMA title won't be counted? Shouldn't strikeforce be selling any amount of hype possible for the sake of ratings?

ima say rogers wins just because. i think it would be horrible for strikeforce if he did. i want fedor to stay undefeated not counting the eye cut or whatever.

I don't see how Overeem can fight in strikeforce/america! He looks like he is extremely roided up and would fail drug tests unless he clears his system. I see Fedor taking this to the ground-I would love to see Rogers get him in trouble and put up a good fight.

it could but why wouldnt you use over seas. he does look way different and i think it would be very hard to look like that and do mma/kickboxing but it is very possible. who knows until you test him over there

Overeem is roided up big time. Fedor tried to hand him a bundle of flowers at the Crocop fight, taunting his physique of beauty. With 20% more strength, better recovery, increased speed he is difficult to beat. He won't fight in the U.S. Because he'll fail the tests.

I am fairly confident Fedor wins by submission tonight but I must admit he worries me some. He looks awefull fat at the weigh-ins especially compared to former pictures of him vs Coleman where his body hairs was cleanly shaven, you could see his six pack abs....he almost had a beach body. I have to wonder how many more fights he has left in him when he has become the "Pudgy One" and is not taking his diet and training so seriously. Perhaps he was on roids back then like many others?

Feodr has always looked like "a fat neighbor" not a fighter. He will win tonight, and do so dominantly. He will take Rogers down, and sub him within the first few minutes. There is no real concern in Strikeforce for him. Werdum? Overeem? Lets be serious.
This is a joke. I will say the rest of the card could be enjoyable. I am looking forward to seeing Mousasi
