    So i suppose the SF model is:

    Get ktfo by Fedor, get a title shot because of it.

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]- OVEREEM VS. ROGERS OFFICIALLY FOR THE TITLE [/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Sunday, March 28, 2010 - by Damon Martin - MMAWeekly.com[/FONT]
    With Alistair Overeem's return to Strikeforce still 6 weeks away, the promotion has made a decision about the heavyweight belt and the title will indeed be on the line when he faces Brett Rogers in St. Louis on May 15.

    The news was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by Strikeforce official Mike Afromowitz on Sunday.

    Overeem won the Strikeforce title in 2007 with a win over Paul Buentello, but has been absent from the promotion ever since. The Dutch fighter has also not lost since his last Strikeforce appearance going 6-0-1 over the last few years, while also racking up several impressive wins in K-1.

    The title fight will headline the upcoming May 15 show which will broadcast on Showtime, and Overeem will put his belt up for grabs against Brett Rogers, who last competed in Nov 2009 in a loss to Fedor Emelianenko.

    Prior to the loss to the Russian, Rogers was undefeated in his career, and even though the defeat put a mark in the loss column, the Chicago born fighter showed tremendous heart and skill against the widely regarded top heavyweight in MMA.

    Overeem and Rogers will showcase the heavyweight title fight, and another battle of the big men will serve as the co-main event when former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski takes on Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva.

    I get that they want Overeems title on the line and they couldnt get Fedor to fight for WHATEVER reason that may be (keep that shit outta this thread)
    I guess it was their only option though.
    I think its retarded.

    I don't really care who gets the title. This is going to be an awesome fight.

    Only three months until Fabricio Werdum becomes the #1 HW contender.

    Why not blame SF? They didn't have to make this a title shot. It makes no sense at all.

    Maybe I'm just weird, but I think any time a champion fights, his belt should be on the line. :dunno:

    That's a good point and I agree. I just think the challenger should earn the shot in some aspect. You don't lose to Fedor and your next fight is against the HW Champion... :rofl:
