As first reported by MMA Weekly, Strikeforce’s upcoming CBS event on November 7th will go down at the Sears Centre Arena, an 11,000-seat venue in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, near Chicago. Tickets for the event, which start at $35 and can be purchased at Ticketmaster and Strikeforce.com, go on sale to the general public this coming Monday at 10 a.m. CT. Besides the heavyweight headliner of Fedor Emelianenko vs. Brett Rogers, the show will feature Jason Miller and Jake Shields fighting for Strikeforce’s newly-vacant middleweight title; Gegard Mousasi and Cristiane "Cris Cyborg" Santos are also rumored to appear, against opponents to be named later.

In other Strikeforce news, Kim Couture and Kerry Vera have agreed to meet in a 135-pound bout at a proposed Strikeforce Challengers event on November 20th. Couture is 1-1 in professional MMA, and hasn’t competed since her first-round TKO win over a befuddled Lina Kvokov last November. Vera, who previously competed as a kickboxer and won the 2007 season of Fight Girls, won her MMA debut via unanimous decision over Leslie Smith at a Bellator event in May. Kim’s soon-to-be-ex-husband Randy and Kerry’s husband Brandon, are scheduled to fight one week earlier at UFC 105.

I cant fucking wait for this, i also live in Chi-Town.

I'm calling it right now, Rodgers is knocking Fedor out. I know it sounds nuts but I know some shit about Grim that I wont say pertaining to his training camp. Also its bound to happen sooner or later, everyone gets caught and Fedor is not on a stand up level with Machida or Anderson Silva so eventually hes gonna get popped.

I live in Chicago.

And to think the first MMA show I'm gonna see has Fedor in it. Plus I'll get to see Mayhem vs. Shields, and possibly see Mousasi fight.

Swedish is fuckin nuts.

I live in Chicago and would NEVER waste money to see this coward.

Feydor needs to go back to Russia and crush cans.

Rogers is gonna shock the world!
Probably not but this fight should be exciting if nothing else.

Brandon Vera is so over rated Randy's old ass should smash him then screw his sister just to drive the beating home.
