Overeem demolishes Rogers, Bigfoot defeats Arlovski at “Strikeforce St. Louis: Heavy Artillery”

At last, the Strikeforce heavyweight champion has returned to his rightful place at the throne following an absence that totalled more than two years this evening during “Strikeforce St. Louis: Heavy Artillery” from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

Alistair “The Demolition Man” Overeem needed all of 3:40 to demolish Brett “Grim “Rogers with a savage series of strikes in the pair’s championship clash that aired live on Showtime.

Overeem may have weighed more than ten pounds less than Rogers when the two hit the scales yesterday evening during the official weigh-ins but it was Alistair who made it quite apparent that he had a decisive strength advantage in the bout between fellow big men, throwing the larger Rogers to the canvas like a rag doll early in the first. It was all downhill for Rogers from there as the hulking Overeem kept Rogers pinned securely to the canvas and administered a ground and pound beating that caused the bout to be mercifully and appropriately waved off in the opening round.

Andrei Arlovski returned to action following more than a year layoff only to suffer the third consecutive defeat in his career, this time at the hands of Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva. Alrlovski answered many questions critics had regarding the former UFC heavyweight champion’s chin following back-to-back knockout losses by a variety of solid strikes to the chin from Silva. Unfortunately for Arlovski. Silva did just enough utilizing his striking arsenal in a closely contested bout to come away with a narrow unanimous decision vistory.

Also looking impressive on the card was Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, who utilized a much improved striking game with a suprising wrestling arsenal to impose his will on Joey Villasenor for the bulk of the three rounds between the middleweights en route to a unanimous decision victory.

Roger Gracie looked sharp in St. Louis as well, submitting former UFC champion Kevin Randleman with a rear naked choke in the very first round, and Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante added another stoppage to his steadily improving resume with a first round knockout of Antwain Britt.

A full set of live results from Strikeforce “St. Louis: Heavy Artillery” are below:

NOT impressed with Overeem, Fedor is going to KILL him!:punch:

How did SF allow their HW champ go 2 years without defending the title? It couldn't be that Overeem is using steroids and has a hard time passing a drug test?:tongue0011:

Oh pfft, 2 judges gave him 30 - 27.
What does that say about Shaolin?

Yeah, to be honest I was impressed with FP's control over Shaolin.
Shaolin needs work on his wrestling, and strength from the looks of things.
He tried a lot of subs, but Lyle controlled the fight IMO

Fancy Pants pushed him up against the cage for the entire first round, imo it should have been a 10 10 round. The second round he got caught in a few subs that were super close! That arm bar was super close to finishing the fight. I do think he won the third round. I think the fight was a 28 28 draw. Either way I don't think Fancy Pants looked good.

Yeah, eh...
I can see the argument for a 10 10,
but in reality its "effective grappling", boring maybe.
but if I can keep you held against the cage, then I am being more effective.
I had it 29-28, I gave Shaolin the second round.

No offense, but your "review" was almost exactly the Sherdog review,
even the 10 10 round lol.
I doubt you saw the fight, so, in case not.

Fair enough,
I just always find it odd when somebody has an "original" opinion that mirrors sherdog's.

That was a decent card. Overeem vs Fedor? He better step up his game is all I can say. He's a lot better than what we saw against Rogers for sure, and he'll need to be.

I'm not saying Fancy Pants is a bad fighter, it just wasn't his greatest showing imo.

I also went to the weigh ins the day before the fights and got my pic taken with Robbie Lawler and King Mo.
