He’s the biggest living legend in MMA and the best martial artist in the world. And he’s coming to fight here in Chicago. Fedor Emelianenko, “The Last Emperor”, the #1 Ranked MMA Heavyweight in the World will take on the undefeated Brett “Grim” Rogers live on CBS.

Yet, as excited as I am to see Fedor and Grim lock up in the main event, I have a feeling that Jake Shields and Jason “Mayhem” Miller’s bout for the Strikeforce Middleweight Championship may be the better fight. I think it might go the distance, and we’ll get to see MMA at its highest level of skill and talent in that fight.

“We’re looking forward to delivering an explosive night of world class MMA action on CBS,” said Scott Coker, Founder and CEO of STRIKEFORCE. “We have the world’s # 1 fighter, Fedor, making his network primetime debut against an undefeated powerhouse in Brett Rogers and, with the stars lined up for the remainder of the card, it is bound to be an exciting night of television.”

Agreed. Add Mousasi vs. Werdum to the list and this is just an amazing card. Right here in our backyard.

The following four matchups are confirmed for the November 7 event:

* Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko vs. Brett “The Grim” Rogers
* Jake Shields vs. Jason “Mayhem” Miller (Middleweight Title Fight)
* Gegard “The Dreamcatcher” Mousasi vs. Rameau Thierry “The African Assassin” Sokoudjou
* Fabricio “Vai Cavalo” Werdum vs. Antonio “Big Foot” Silva
