Rogers will fight Overeem for the Strikeforce Heavyweight Title, after allPosted on March 3, 2010, 06:38 AM by Anton Gurevich
Canadian sports commentator Mauro Ranallo revealed in his radio show that the current Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem (who was also on the show) will fight Brett Rogers for the title, despite the early rumors about the non-title fight between the two.
Brett Rogers was knocked out in his last fight against "The Last Emperor" Fedor Emelianenko in November, which makes many people to wonder why "The Grim" is awarded a title shot against Overeem, instead of Fedor. Overeem's fight against Rogers on May 15th Strikeforce card will be his first return to the United States, since winning the title against Paul Buentello at Strikeforce: Four Men Enter, One Man Survives on November 16th, 2007.
Renallo also interviewed the CBS Vice President of Programming Kelly Kahl, who discussed various issues including the dispute between M-1 Global and Strikeforce, Herschel Walker and the remaining bouts on Strikeforce on CBS fight card.
