Andrei ArlovskiA heavyweight matchup between Andrei Arlovski and Brett Rogers has been added to the lineup for Strikeforce’s June 6th event in St. Louis, the promotion confirmed on Tuesday.

With the addition of Arlovski-Rogers, the Showtime-broadcast card now features:

  • Robbie Lawler vs. Jake Shields
