Michael David Smith talks to Scott Coker and gets more scoop on the November 7 Fedor Emelianenko vs Brett Rogers card on CBS:

Can you tell me any of the undercard fights?
I can tell you some of the fighters. You'll see Gegard Mousasi, Jake Shields, Mayhem Miller and Cris Cyborg. It'll be a solid card, with the No. 1 heavyweight in the world and a great undercard.

Let's hope so, who do they have for Gegard? Certainly not Southworth....Overeem is leaving Strikeforce to isn't he?

They need to have Gegard fight someone credible, no one like a Mike Kyle or anyone like that cause Gegard is on the cusp of becoming a household name and with another big opponent they can create another BIG star for Strikeforce.

But UFC owns the lhw div bigtime. I don't know any credible fighters at lhw signed to Strikeforce that would make any sense what so ever. I'd rather see him fight Lawler at mw then watch him some no name who gets mauled. I really don't see anything for them to do excet maybe sign him to fight Overeem at HW.....which would be very dangerous!
