One of the world’s fastest growing sports, MMA has been selling out arenas and producing some of the fiercest competitors ever to hit the ring.  Headlined by some of the biggest names in the sport today, STRIKEFORCE MMA includes unforgettable match-ups such as the recent stunning upset of the consensus No. 1 fighter in the world and arguably the greatest fighter of all-time, Russian heavyweight Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko.  Also featured is Robbie Lawler’s hard-punching cage fight against Renato “Babalu” Sobral at STRIKEFORCE: Live.  Plus, the collection includes unaired undercard fights from STRIKEFORCE: Heavy Artillery in which Alistair “The Demolition Man” Overeem defends his heavyweight title against knockout artist Brett “The Grim” Rogers.  Additional main card fights from the event include match-ups between Andrei “The Pitbull” Arlovski and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva along with Roger Gracie’s rear naked choke submission of Kevin Randleman.
