Strikeforce/M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Rogers was a mixed martial arts event held on November 7, 2009 promoted by Strikeforce in association with M-1 Global. It was the first MMA event on network television since the now-defunct EliteXC promotion broadcast its final event, EliteXC: Heat, on CBS on October 4, 2008. The event had a four-fight main card with a broadcasting team of Gus Johnson, Frank Shamrock and Mauro Ranallo.[2] The event drew an estimated 4,040,000 viewers, with a peak at 5,460,000 on CBS.[3]


Gegard Mousasi was originally slated to defend his Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Championship, but eventually competed in a non-title bout.[4]

A previously announced bout between Bobby Lashley and Ron Waterman was announced to have moved to a later date, though it never officially took place.[4]

A women's bout between Marloes Coenen and Erin Toughill was set to serve as a reserve fight,[5] but was cancelled when Toughill withdrew due to an undisclosed medical condition.[6] Roxanne Modafferi stepped in to fight Coenen on this show.[7]

EA Sports showed a preview trailer for the new EA Sports MMA game coming out in 2010 during the event.

A welterweight bout between Mark Miller and Deray Davis was scheduled for the undercard, but was canceled due to time issues.[8]
