This fight, to me, looks like a desperation measure by Strikeforce to try to put the biggest fight they possibly can. So they can start contending with the UFC. They're basically taking their two biggest (casual name value) fighters and putting them together. This fight is lose-lose to me.
While they may be able to get a few cheap bucks, this fight does nothing to legitimize Fedor's #1 status. He will only drop down the ranks (Since he's avoided the UFC's Heavyweight division Which contains most of the top 10) Even worse, if by some fluke KO Rogers does manage to win, this will drop Fedor's status immeasurably and we will most likely never hear the end of it from Dana White. At that rate, we'll never see Fedor in the UFC and Rogers will somehow be this legit fighter who has shown nothing but freak KO power if a fight doesn't go more than 3 minutes.
I don't like it, I don't like it one bit.
