Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers Punch Drunk Predictions

Tonight's the night!

If it hasn't been said enough throughout the MMA community this week, let me remind you one more time:

Anyone who has even a passing interest in Mixed Martial Arts needs to be watching this card on CBS tonight. Not just because it's Fedor and a great card and it's free (but those are three pretty solid reasons, you have to admit...) but because if you're a real fight fan, you want to see a second Strikeforce CBS card and perhaps that mythical unicorn Dana White always mentions—the UFC on network TV.

Don't get me wrong: I'm always going to watch fights, whether I have to pay for them or not, but if this sport is every going to hit that level of mainstream acceptance that so many are itching for, it's not going to come at $50 a pop on PPV. It's going to come through network TV...starting tonight.
