    Default Bigfoot vs Fabricio Werdum Added To The Strikeforce/CBS Card

    http://www.mmaweekly.com/absolutenm/...9729&zoneid=13


    A fight between Strikeforce heavyweight contender Fabricio Werdum and former EliteXC heavyweight champion Antonio ?Bigfoot? Silva is expected for Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers on Nov. 7 in Chicago.

    Independent sources close to the bout told MMAWeekly.com that it will be one of the four bouts featured on the CBS televised portion of the fight card. Other televised bouts include the main event between Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers, the Strikeforce middleweight championship between Jake Shields and Jason ?Mayhem? Miller, and light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi in a non-title bout against an opponent yet to be named.

    ?My manager called me asking if I agree to fight him, and I said yes and that I was ready,? Werdum recently told Brazilian website Tatame.com, before adding, ?but I think this fight won?t happen anymore.? At the time, Werdum believed that Silva was instead going to accept a fight for Sengoku in Japan.

    A later update on Tatame.com quoted Silva?s manager, Alex Davis, as saying, "I spoke with them and they said everything it's okay. I'm in Brazil and I don't know more about it, but I think it's gonna happen."

    Werdum (12-4-1) made his Strikeforce debut with a submission win over Mike Kyle at August?s Carano vs. Cyborg event.

    Silva (13-1) has never fought for Strikeforce, but defeated Jim York at Sengoku: Tenth Battle in September. He is currently on a six-fight winning streak.

    This is a good looking card:
    Fedor vs rogers
    Miller vs shields
    Mousasi vs likely sokoudjou
    Werdum vs silva


    The good thing is they still have enough talent over for their december cars.
    Diaz vs hieron
    Thomson vs melendez
    Cyborg defending her belt
    Carano
    Lashley
    Possibly roger gracie
    Villasenor
    And with the dream coalition guys like jacare, and their lightweights could make an appearance.

    That is a good card, Strikeforce has a small roster, but generally puts together good fights.

    Agreed, plus they dont put them on every month so the anticipation builds up for their cards

    years ago when Pride and the UFC used to hold events every 2 months or so with nothing in between, I used to get so excited - that's always the trade off when things happen more often and it's why the olympics and the world cup will always be special

    I always wanted to go to Japan to see a Pride event and I am sorry I didn't do that. Although Dream is very similar, they concentrate too much on Japanese fighters and it wouldn't be the same.
