    Strikeforce / M-1 Global - Fedor vs. Rogers

    November 7, 2009
    Sears Centre Arena,
    Hoffman Estates, Illinois


    Middleweight Championship Fight:
    Jake Shields vs. Jason “Mayhem” Miller

    Fedor Emelianenko vs. Brett Rogers
    Gegard Mousasi vs. Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou
    Antonio Silva vs. Fabricio Werdum
    Jeff Curran vs. Sam Thao
    Mark Miller vs. Deray Davis
    Shamar Bailey vs. John Kolosci
    Louis Taylor vs. Nate Moore
    Christian Uflacker vs. Jonatas Novaes


    Marloes Coenen vs. Erin Toughill was on the card as well, Toughill had to pull out unfortunately. Couldn't find a good card listing, the Strikefore mixed martial arts website seems a tad out of date.

    Rogers is training with Shogun's striking coach for this fight; this same coach led Shogun to KO Chuck Liddell and (unofficially) beat Machida . Rogers has KO ability. Rogers is hungrier, with nothing to lose and something to prove. This is a tougher fight than it seems.

    Still, Fedor'll win it.

    Shogun didn't train with Cunha in the leadup to the Machida fight; he did most of his standup training in Curitiba with Andre Dida.

    This is an exciting card. Fedor and Gegard will dominate.

    Pretty much my feelings. Rogers has a punchers chance to be sure, but..... it's Fedor!

    Mousasi will devour Soko, Silva will outlast Werdum and I have the strangest feeling Fedor is gonna get KOed by one of them big hamfists of Rogers.

    Why is the Mousasi - Sokoudjou fight not labeled as a titlefight? Mousasi did win the light heavyweight title, or did I miss something? And if it is a titlefight, does Sokoudjou deserve a titleshot? I'm gonna go with Mousasi to win either way.

    Part of me likes Fedor too much to ever root against him, but another part is kinda hoping Rogers knocks him out for ducking the UFC. I'd have to say I don't think Rogers has half a chance though.

    I'd like to say Rogers will get the upset win over Fedor. ...But seriously, who are we kidding? Fedor will destroy him!

    I thought Dida was brought in to help Cunha, not to substitute him. Anyway, the rest of my first post stands: Rogers has more of a chance than people realize, but this is Fedor we're talking about.

    On the Rogers vs. Fedor, I wonder if Rogers is faster than Fedor with good enough TD? I honestly don't know since I havent really since a Rogers fight.

    In my mind, that is what gave Fedor some problems in the oh so short match with Arlovski: the speed difference, which Fedor generally has had over his opponents.
