The Nov. 7 "Strikeforce: Emelianenko vs. Rogers" event is official for the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Ill., a suburb to the northwest of Chicago.

Strikeforce executive Mike Afromowitz today confirmed the previously rumored locale with MMAjunkie.com.

The event is headlined by a heavyweight clash between Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers, and Jason "Mayhem" Miller and Jake Shields meet for a middleweight title recently vacated by former champ Cung Le.

WAR ROGERS
(and yes, I am aware that his chances of winning are basically 'zero', but that makes it so much more exciting if he can!)

I'm so pumped this is in my hometown.

I never would have thought Fedor would be in my backyard, but I'm totally there.

Hes got a chance. Probably a better chance than Overeem. Rogers has huge KO power. If he can unleash a flurry in the opening rnd he can catch Fedor. I dont think itll last long on the mat though.
