Strikeforce heavyweight GP picks, Vegas-style: Who can pull the upset?

Night No. 1 of the Strikeforce heavyweight Grand Prix didn't work out well for one of the big favorites - Fedor Emelianenko. The legendary Fedor entered his fight against Antonio "Big Foot" Silva as a 5-to-1 favorite. He walked away bloodied, beaten and considering retirement. Can Brett Rogers or Fabricio Werdum pull off a similar upset this weekend in Dallas in part two of the heavyweight GP?

Larry Pepe from and Damon Martin from join me on RawVegas to break down the main event between Werdum and minus-350 favorite Alistair Overeem. Below is our conversation about Josh Barnett, a minus-365 favorite, over Rogers.
