Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers Confirmed for Sears Center In Hoffman Estates, IL November 7

MMAWeekly confirms the location:

“The Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Ill. will host the CBS network debut of Strikeforce: Emelianenko vs. Rogers.

Strikeforce Director of Communications Mike Afromowitz on Wednesday afternoon confirmed the news to The CBS telecast will air between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. E.S.T.

“We just got approved,” he said.

Jake Shields and Jason “Mayhem” Miller will also square off for the newly vacated middleweight title.

Other scheduled participants include newly minted light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi and women’s 145lb. title-holder Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos, who face opponents to be determined. "

While I certainly will get annoyed with everyone calling a suburb quite a ways outside of the city “Chicago” this is still wonderful news for people in the Chicagoland area. The arena is actually pretty small for a major event but I’ve been there covering IFL events in the past that have sold out so a card featuring the best fighter on the planet should be able to do the same.
