According to Strikeforce commentator Mauro Renallo, the fight between Rogers and Overeem is not only going to happen, but it will be for the title. Overeem-Rogers is slated to take place May 15th and to be aired on Showtime.
It was not explained why Rogers, coming off a Knockout by Fedor Emelianenko in his last fight will now get a shot at the title. It may just be because of Emelianenko’s Manager claiming Overeem is not ready for Fedor, leaving no other challengers for the belt.
What do you think is the truth behind this? Even though someone in the Strikeforce has announced that the Overeem-Rogers will take place for a belt, you cannot always guarantee until the contracts have been inked out and Strikeforce announces it.
