MMA Night in Canada. Cuz who needs hockey?

Big night of mixed martial arts on TV tonight. CBS is showing Fedor vs. Rogers, which will be interesting because it's Fedor's big North American free TV debut for Strikeforce after spurning UFC's efforts to sign him. He's fighting Brett Rogers, who only the hardest of hardcore MMA fans have ever heard of before. Personally, I'm rooting for the Rogers upset, just to watch Dana White cackle with glee, and to watch the "Fedor is the No. 1 heavyweight in the world" fanboys have their heads explode. There are some other matches on the CBS card, but darned if I know what they are. In terms of promotion, this really is a one-match show.

Meanwhile, UFC is counter-programming with a 2-hour special showing the main events of a bunch of recent UFC PPVs, including Randy Couture vs 'Minotauro' Nogueira. This is going on my DVR.

I may liveblog the Strikeforce show if I'm feeling ambitious. Strikeforce needs a home-run tonight, or else they could be the next Elite XC. Given the lack of buzz over tonight's show, however, I'm not optimistic.
