Strikeforce: Heavy ArtilleryCategory: MMA
Last month’s Strikeforce event at the “Music City” was marred by an incident that came to be known as the Strikeforce brawl.
Hoping to erase the stigma and put Strikeforce back in the MMA world, the organization is holding another event on May 15, 2010 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
It will be titled Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery.
So called because the main event will feature a bout between heavyweights Alistair “Demolition Man” Overeem and Brett “The Grim” Rogers. At stake is Overeem’s Strikeforce Heavyweight Championship title.
In the co-main event, two heavyweight fighters will also clash in Andre “The Pitbull” Arlovski and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.
