    last news was:

    "Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Diaz" weigh-ins: "Cyborg" six pounds over

    by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Apr 10, 2009 at 6:30 pm ET
    [​IMG]SAN JOSE, Calif. – MMAjunkie.com was on scene for today's "Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Diaz" weigh-ins at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.

    The same venue hosts Saturday's Showtime-televised Strikeforce event, which features a headline bout between Frank Shamrock and Nick Diaz (at 179 pounds) and a interim lightweight title fight between Gilbert Melendez and Rodrigo Damm.

    Main-card fighter Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos weighed in at 152 pounds for her 145-pound fight, and she must get down to 149.5 pounds by 11 p.m. EDT (8 p.m. PDT). Otherwise, the California State Athletic Commission will nix the fight.

    The commission wants Santos within six pounds of her opponent, Hitomi Akano, who weighed 143.5 pounds. Even then, she will likely have to forfeit part of her fight purse to Akano.

    Preliminary-card fighter Brandon Michaels also failed to make weight for his event. He has extra time to cut from 187.5 pounds to 186.

    Stay tuned to MMAjunkie.com for updates on both fighters.

    Weigh-in results included:
    MAIN CARD
    • Nick Diaz (180) vs. Frank Shamrock (180)
    • Rodrigo Damm (154.5) vs. Gilbert Melendez (154)
    • Benji Radach (184) vs. Scott Smith (184)
    • Hitomi Akano (143.5) vs. Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos (152)*
    • Ron "Abongo" Humphrey (239.5) vs. Brett Rogers (262.5)
    PRELIMINARY CARD
    • Waylon Kennell (185.5) vs. Eric Lawson (186)
    • Buck Meredith (185) vs. Luke Rockhold (186)
    • Raul Castillo (183) vs. Brandon Michaels (187.5)+
    • Zak Bucia (170) vs. James Terry (170)
    • Shingo Kohara (136) vs. Jeremy Tavares (134.5)
    * - Missed weight on first attempt (146-pound fight); Santos has until 11 p.m EDT (8 p.m. PDT) to drop two-and-a-half additional pounds. The commission will only approve the fight to go on if she gets to down to 149.5 pounds and within six pounds of her opponent's weight.
    + - Michaels missed weight, but the fight will go on at a catch-weight of 187.5 pounds

    Finally Brett Rogers will be on a main card.

    Cyborg and Gina should just fight at a higher weight class when they finally meet, since they both obviously have problems hitting this weight.

    "However, Akano's side refused to accept the fight, because Cyborg's weight being more than 145 pounds violated the contract. Akano, by weighing in under 145 (at 143.5) had fulfilled her end and thus would be getting her contracted money whether she fought or not.
    Akano's advisers felt it was unfair for Cyborg to miss weight by such a large margin. Akano usually fights at 135, but agreed to bulk up for the high profile match."




    Good its about time someone did this.

    good for her. fighters can't keep coming in several pounds over, and expect the fight to happen with only a small fine...which will likely be won back, as a result of the weight advantage.
