Programming alert: Brett Rogers to appear on ESPN2 today (Nov. 4)

Undefeated Strikeforce heavyweight Brett Rogers will make live appearances from Bristol, Connecticut today (Nov. 4) on ESPN2 programs "First Take" at 10 am ET and then again on "SportsNation" at 4 pm ET.

"The Grim" will headline the Strikeforce/CBS live prime time event "Fedor vs. Rogers" this Saturday (Nov. 7) from the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois at 10 pm ET against famed heavyweight attraction Fedor Emelianenko.

Rogers on Fedor:

"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."

Remember that will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the main card action on fight night (Saturday, November 7), which is slated to air at 10 p.m. ET on CBS from the Sears Centre.
