 --Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers were brought to Soldier Field in Chicago today for the Chicago Bears vs Cleveland Browns game and to be interviewed at the CBS Halftime show to push Saturday night's fight.  There is no better mainstream audience to put MMA fighters before than an NFL audience.

if it's true, CBS fails at promoting this event.

They did a brief live read promo with Rogers sitting in a club suite of some sort and a picture of Fedor along with the time of the event. That was the extent of it.

 Yeah as MMA fans we know Fedor is way better and legit then Kimbo ever was, doesn't mean Fedor will get the Kimbo ratings they got.  On top fo that no Gina will be a tough sell.

 To CBS' credit, they did show a commercial twice during the game, but both times it was either cut off by another commericial or cut off to return to the game. And then they showed Rogers in the box seats. Still, this has to be the worst no promotin in the history of promoting.

I'm sad that Fedor's introduction to American football included the Cleveland Browns.
