STRIKEFORCE: SHAMROCK vs. DIAZ brought MMA back to Showtime…boy did it! The Showtime portion of the card would make any MMA promoter envious.
The night started out with big Brett Rogers taking on “Iron Ring” winner “Abongo” Humphrey. “Abongo’s” physique alone is enough to make most men tremble; that is, unless your name is Brett Rogers. Rogers cut down to make the 265-pound heavyweight limit while Humphrey weighed in at 239 pounds.
Rogers was agile and kept an impressive pace for his size; both men did, for that matter. Humphrey kept coming forward but in the end it was his downfall. Rogers’ technical superiority became evident in his crisp striking that repeatedly found its mark.
