Fedor Emelianenko Says A Fight Between Him & Brock Lesnar Will Definitely Take Place
(fightline.com)
Fedor Emelianenko is getting set to make his Strikeforce debut in the next month or so, and faces a formidable opponent in the undefeated Brett Rogers. Rogers has racked up wins over the likes of Jon Murphy, Ralph Kelly, and most recently, former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski. Fedor recently noted to Inside MMA that Rogers presents a difficult challenge for him. "Brett Rogers is in very strong physical shape," Fedor noted. "He has a great knockout punch and is very big and very dangerous." Despite the fight being announced a month ago, an exact date for the bout has yet to be announced. Fedor admitted that he wasn't sure when the fight would take place, saying it will "take place sometime in October or November, the exact date is still being identified." Fedor also stated that this will be his last fight this year, and he will probably not fight again until February of 2010. Fedor was asked if MMA fans should forget about a fight between him and Brock Lesnar from ever happening, to which "The Last Emperor" replied, "definitely not." "I think that this fight will definitely take place sometime," he continued. "I hope that finally we'll find some common language with the UFC and we'll come to an agreement." Stay tuned to FightLine.com for an announcement on a date and venue for the Fedor - Rogers fight.

Bas Boon has harsh words for new StrikeForce arrangement
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Overeem's management Golden Glory considers breaking with Strikeforce now that m-1 has entered into a co-promotion with the event. As this happened after Overeem signed a new contract with strikeforce in may, the management sees good reason to break open the contract with strikeforce. In the words of Golden Glory manager Bas Boon: "It hasn't escaped my notice that we are dealing with a bunch of crooks who wish to brand their name onto someone who has managed to build up a successful organization on his own with a good network deal" "Our deal with strikeforce was made before this bunch of robbers came along, but now we were planning on asking our money in advance. In fact, I see this as the ideal opportunity to say no to the contract that was signed earlier, we don't want to fight on any M-mini Cons & co promotions."

Werdum isn't buying Overeem's injury
(mmaweekly.com)
Fabricio Werdum planned to make his August Strikeforce debut by challenging champion Alistair Overeem for his Strikeforce heavyweight belt. He did end up fighting at the Aug. 15 event, but against journeyman Mike Kyle, not Overeem. The Dutch fighter cited a re-aggravated injury to his hand, originating in a bar brawl, as the reason for withdrawing from the fight. Overeem has since been confirmed to fight Peter Aerts in a K-1 kickboxing bout on Sept. 26 in Seoul, Korea. Werdum isn’t buying the injury.

Jacare: I am more than ready to step up and smash Shields......
(adcombat.com)
. "I just read Jake Shields interview on mmaweekly.com and I would like to make a statement saying that I am more than ready to step up and smash Shields. I think Jake Shields ground game is overrated and I will be more then glad to end his win streak and take his belt away. So Jake, you talk the talk, but can you walk the walk, if you can, let’s do it, I accept the fight against you right now. So what's it gonna be. And I also would like to send a message to the clown " Jason Miller , you made a huge mistake to follow me into Strikeforce" we have an unfinished business and I was afraid that I might not be able to finish it, since I came to Strikeforce, but thank's to Scott's efforts and Jason's stupidity, he signed, So now we live in the same house, and he is not welcome there" " So Jason do whatever it is that you need to do , be ready and you are next on my list, after I finish Jake" Terrible matchup for jake , but i would like to see it

MMA Quick Quote: When in doubt, fake an injury
(mmamania.com)
“There’s loopholes in everybody’s game, and in his game, the way I see it, he can sometimes get a little sloppy. He is a patient guy, but when he feels that he has to give, he kind of rushes it a little bit. Just on that, I can kinda set him up for a knockout just by faking an injury or something, just jump in and out his offense a little more than not. Hit and move. Hit and move. Fedor, he’s definitely done and proved to the world that he’s capable of doing whatever he needs to to get the job done. That right there –- that’s the type of fighter that I’m looking forward to fighting because it’s all about testing your might and he’s definitely got it to test.”

Jason "Mayhem" Miller won't sign a contract to fight Jake Shields in October...
(mmamania.com)
… according to the former Elite XC welterweight champion. “… he’ll beat the piss out of me? He’s the one that won’t sign the contract. I would sign that fight tonight but he just wants to talk and act tough, but he’s the one that won’t sign. His manager tells us the fight is on, Miller has agreed and then I’m hearing he’s decided he can’t fight in October but would maybe do it in December. He thinks he’s a star now but just like the show I was the only one doing the fighting while he just did the talking. He must think he’s Cung Le now.”

Former EliteXC welterweight champion Jake Shields says there’s no delay on his end in facing Jason “Mayhem” Miller in Strikeforce. “If they hand me the bout agreement today, I’ll sign it,” Shields told MMAWeekly.com. Miller last month announced that he’d be facing the Top 10 welterweight in the near future, though his manager, Ryan Parsons, told MMAWeekly.com the timing of the bout was uncertain. Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said his promotion was working on major events for October and December and entertained the possibility of an interim middleweight title fight for Miller and Shields.
