Says if his knee holds up and he can get matched then that is the proposed date for his MMA return.

 While the California-based Strikeforce organization has yet to officially announce a recently rumored Nov. 20 event, MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned that Kansas City, Kan., is the likely locale for the new card.

Sources close to the organization indicated Strikeforce is nearing a deal to secure Memorial Hall, site of August's "M-1 Global presents Breakthrough," for the as-yet-unannounced card.

The "Challenger Series" event is the third scheduled card for Strikeforce in November.

Strikeforce officials were unavailable for comment when contacted by MMAjunkie.com.

While there have been no official announcements regarding potential competitors at the event, a female matchup between Kim Couture and Kerry Vera is expected for the card, and heavyweight Roger Gracie has also mentioned his possible participation.

While Strikeforce has yet to make official mention of the Nov. 20 card, the organization already has back-to-back events planned for earlier in the month.

"Strikeforce Challengers: Evangelista vs. Gurgel" takes place Nov. 6 in Fresno, Calif., while the long-awaited organizational debut of Fedor Emelianenko at "Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers" will be made on the CBS-broadcast portion of the Nov. 7 event in Hoffman Estates, Ill., just outside of Chicago.

For the latest on the as-yet-unannounced Nov. 20 "Strikeforce: Challengers" event, stay tuned to the MMA Rumors section of MMAjunkie.com.

I like Strikeforce a lot. Glad they are signing good talent and on CBS/Showtime. Should have some really good fights this year.

I could care less about Fedor however.

 Strikefrce is really eyeing the Midwest. St Louis,Chicago,Kansas City. UFC mentioned Chicago as the # 1 for PPV buys. I hope we get some love now that UFC isn't coming back in 2010 either.

Can't wait to see Roger fighting MMA. I am anxious to see how he does. I'm one of the few people who don't want to see him thrown in with Fedor in his second fight, which is something a lot of people want to see apparently.

 Wow, I thought this thread had just gone under the radar into obscurity.

It will be great to see Roger fight again. He shouldn't fight Fedor for at least a couple of years but of course, you know know what it's like when the hype machine takes a hold!

don't worry... Obama is enroute to Zuffa headquarters as we speak to bring the UFC to Chicago like the Olympics
