“Alistair Overeem, a fighter from The Netherlands long regarded as the most legitimate threat to the universally recognized No. 1 heavyweight in the world, the famed Fedor Emelianenko, will defend his STRIKEFORCE world heavyweight title against the fighter who gave Fedor his toughest fight and nearly defeated him, Brett “The Grim” Rogers, of St. Paul, Minn., in the main event.

“Three outstanding matchups round out the telecast: World renowned Jiu Jitsu master “Jacare” Souza will collide with determined, hard-hitting Joey Villasenor; unbeaten Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu sensation Roger Gracie will make his long-awaited STRIKEFORCE and U.S. MMA debut against two-time NCAA Wrestling Champion and former UFC heavyweight champion Kevin Randleman and Antwain “The Juggernaut” Britt will collide with Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante in a clash of explosive light heavyweights.
