Fedor Emelianenko, the number one heavyweight fighter in the world, and Brett Rogers meet in the main event of Saturday night’s Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers. The event is a milestone for the promotion, airing on network broadcast television as on CBS Saturday Night Fights.

The fighters stepped on the scales at the Sears Centre on Friday to weigh-in and make their bouts official.

The main event is all set with Emelianenko stepping on the scales, blue jeans and belt on, weighing 232 pounds, still more than 30 pounds lighter than his opponent. Rogers, hoping to pull off the upset and realize a dream, tipped the scales at 264 pounds. Not a lot taller than Fedor, Rogers looked quite a bit more muscular.

Rogers later told HDNet’s Ron Kruck, “(Fedor’s) weakness is his chin. I’m gonna go in for the kill.”

Jake Shields and Jason “Mayhem” Miller meet Saturday to fill the vacant Strikeforce middleweight title slot. Both easily made weight, Shields at 184.5 pounds, Miller at 184 pounds.

On the non-televised preliminary card, Dustin Neace weighed in at 150.5 pounds for his 145-pound bout with Jeff Curran, who easily made weight. Neace was given one-hour to make 146 pounds, the allowed limit for the bout.
