LAS VEGAS – MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com
) was on scene and reporting live from today's official "Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine" fighter weigh-ins.
Today's festivities took place at HRH Lounge at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Strikeforce middleweight champ Luke Rockhold weighed 185 pounds, and despite some concerns about his opponent's to make weight, challenger and fellow headliner Keith Jardine had no problems on the scale.
In fact, Jardine, a UFC vet and longtime light heavyweight making his middleweight debut, weighed in while donning full shorts and a hat, and he still weighed 185 pounds with ease.
The only fighter who initially missed weight was preliminary-card competitor Nah-Shon Burrell (172), who was a pound heavy for his welterweight bout. He was given an additional hour to make weight and registered 171 pounds one hour after the official proceedings.
