Click the stars to rate how good you think this was.

Strikeforce: Fedor vs Rogers, which is co-promoted by Strikeforce & M-1 Global, was held on November 7, 2009 at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, IL. The event aired live on CBS in the United States and was streamed live on in all countries in which there was no exclusive television deal in place.

It was the first MMA event on network television since the now-defunct EliteXC promotion broadcast its final event, EliteXC: Heat, on CBS on October 4, 2008. The event had a four-fight main card with a broadcasting team of Gus Johnson, Frank Shamrock and Mauro Ranallo.

  1. Strikeforce put on an amazing free televised card. The four fights we got to see were all excellent, relevant, entertaining, quality fights. The only bad thing I can say is that there were only four fights. Will we ever get to see the Roxanne Modafferi vs. Marloes Coenen or Jeff Curran vs. Dustin Neace fights?

    The commentating had some room for improvement but was better than any of there previous events. No meat puppets, no heavy metal or rap intermissions and no dancing girls (Mayhem's entourage doesn't count).

  2. I thought Shamrock's lack of distinction between strikes that landed and those that didn't was the most offensive part of the commentary. I actually though Johnson and Ranallo served there purposes well, the former of which is to provide a means of asking questions that might be of interest to the uninitiated fan.
