Strikeforce Brings Fedor Emelianenko vs. Brett Rogers to Chicago

The setting for the Nov. 7 Strikeforce on CBS event featuring Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers will be the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Ill.

Strikeforce announced the venue Wednesday upon approval from the Illinois Athletic Commission and tickets ranging from $35 to $500 will be made available to the general public beginning Sept. 28 at the venue's box office and through Ticketmaster.

The Sears Centre is located about an hour drive from Chicago and previously hosted two IFL events in 2007, XFO 13 in 2006 and Adrenaline 1 last year.

Fedor (30-1) vs. Rogers (10-0) is the only fight announced so far for Strikeforce's debut on CBS.
