The fighters weighed-in on the scales today (June 17, 2011) outdoors at the Victory Plaza at the American Airlines Center in Dallas for Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum.
All fighters on the main Showtime portion of the card made weight. There are several catch weight bouts on the undercard and welterweight Brian Melancon blew the 170lb limit by five pounds. Presumably he will have to give up some of his purse to opponent Isaac Vallie-Flagg.
The card is headlined by the second and final installment of the opening round of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix. Alistair Overeem vs Fabricio Werdum and Josh Barnett vs Brett Rogers are the two tournament bouts on the card.
