Fedor, Shields, Miller & others at an open workout Wednesday in Chicago:

Quote:
WHO: MMA Superstar & World’s Universally Recognized No. 1 Heavyweight FEDOR
STRIKEFORCE Light Heavyweight Champion Gegard Mousasi
Exciting Submission Expert Jason “Mayhem" Miller
World-Ranked Cesar Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Jake Shields
Light heavyweight Judo Expert Rameau Theirry Sokoudjou

WHAT: The athletes will participate in an open media workout on Wednesday, Nov. 4, just three days prior to the STRIKEFORCE and M-1 Global: “Fedor vs. Rogers” event LIVE on Saturday, Nov. 7 on CBS Television Network (9:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) from Sears Centre Arena in Chicago.

Fedor Emelianenko, who is the world’s No. 1 heavyweight with a record of 30-1, will face undefeated American powerhouse Brett “The Grim” Rogers in his first fight since Emelianenko’s promotional company M-1 Global signed an agreement with STRIKEFORCE to co-promote major events headlined by Emelianenko.

Mousasi, the STRIKEFORCE Light Heavyweight Champ who is on a 13-fight win streak, will face Sokoudjou in a non-title matchup of two, hard-hitting KO artists.

Miller, a submission expert and host of MTV’s smash-hit reality series Bully Beatdown, will face fellow submission specialist Jake Shields in a fight that will likely be a war on the mat.

Tickets, starting at $35, are on sale now at the Sears Centre Arena box office (www.searscentre.com) as well as at all Ticketmaster locations (800-745-3000), Ticketmaster online (www.ticketmaster.com) and STRIKEFORCE’s official website (www.strikeforce.com).
