CagePotato was on hand yesterday at Fedor Emelianenko’s open workout that Strikeforce/Showtime held in NYC. They have video above of his workout and a short interview with Scott Coker explaining why they booked Brett Rogers as Fedor’s first opponent. He also mentions that Alistair Overeem will likely have a “tune-up” fight in Holland, presumably for this Golden Glory event.
