Strikeforce has announced, former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei “The Pitbull” Arlovski will take on Brett “The Grim” Rogers at Strikeforce’s June 6th show in St. Louis.
The announcement was made earlier today at a press conference for Strikeforce “Lawler vs. Shields” show in St. Louis.
Arlovski (15-6), will look to get back to action after getting knocked out by pound-for-pound heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko at the Affliction 2 card early this year.
Rogers (9-0) gained notoriety for his impressive wins in EliteXC and for calling out Kimbo Slice at the EliteXC “Primetime” press conference last year. This fight will certainly test Rogers, who has not fought a top 10 contender thus far in his MMA career.
