Default Fedor V Brett Rogers signed

Fedor Emelianenko will make his Strikeforce debut against Brett Rogers but no date or venue have been named, Strikeforce vice president Mike Afromowitz confirmed to MMAWeekly.com.

Emelianenko, the top ranked heaavyweight in the world, inked a deal with Strikeforce on August 3 after Affliction decided it would no longer promote mixed martial arts events following the cancellation of Affliction: "Trilogy" that was scheduled to be headlined by Josh Barnett and Emelianenko.

Emelianenko made a name for himself in the Pride organization rising to the top of the heavyweight division. He dismantled former UFC heavyweight titleholders Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski in his last two outings.

Rogers, an undefeated heavyweight with a record of 10-0, is coming off a 22 second knockout win over Andrei Arlovski on June 6.

There have been rumors of an Oct. 10 date, but Afromowitz wouldn't confirm that date at this time.

Good lord this manís legacy becomes more diminished by the fight. Should have signed with the UFC

Dana can't say anything at this point as his HW div is also weak .. to be fair, if he calls Rogers a can, he will have to call Carwin the same thing .. two big undefeated dudes each coming off the biggest wins of their careers to fairly big names ... in this case, i would say that rogers is more proven than carwin ...

oh .. and if both rogers and carwin win, dana can set up a Superfight between the two undefeated champs ... LOL

I predict Fedor by attempted manslaughter.
