On Saturday, Nov. 7, 2009, ProMMA.info’s southeast team traveled to Hoffman Estates, Ill. for the Strikeforce – Fedor vs. Rogers event. Headlining the card was a heavyweight battle between consensus number one heavyweight in the world Fedor Emelianenko and the undefeated hard-hitting Brett “The Grim” Rogers.
Although many felt Rogers would not be a problem for Emelianenko, he proved the doubters wrong, and gave The Last Emperor what was probably his toughest fight to date. You will see photos of both Emelianenko and Roger’s faces after the bout. Emelianenko won with a crushing KO victory but he did take some punishment.
It was a fight for the ages and we felt very fortunate to have witnessed such a historic event, being the first Strikeforce card to air live on CBS network television, and introducing the mainstream public to Fedor. Enjoy the photos.
