During a new episode of Fight Network: Preview of Strikeforce Heavy Artillery, numerous fighters surrounding the headline fight are asked about their thoughts on the title fight. Notably ex-UFC Heavyweight champ Randy Couture explains how Rogers will be the new Strikeforce heavyweight champ.
“The ability for Brett to take him [Overeem] down, overwhelm him and punish him is there and I think Brett has naturally heavy hands for a guy his size. So even though Overeem is probably a more refined kickboxer in that sense coming from Holland. That could be a very interesting match to see how it unfolds. But I kind of have to lean towards Rogers in that fight.”
