Local heavyweight to appear on Showtime

Heavyweight Brett Rogers will make his long awaited return to the cage tonight live on Showtime Sports at Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Diaz. Rogers (8-0), who has not fought since knocking out Jon Murphy in May of 2008, will face Ron "Abongo" Humphrey of Atlanta. Humphrey is also undefeated at 5-0, but has fought much lesser opponents than Rogers.

Rogers has the honor of being the first victorious fighter on network television when he defeated James Thompson on February 16, 2008 at EliteXC: Street Certified on CBS.
