From ST. Louis' ScottTrade Center:

ST. LOUIS – MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was on scene for today's official "Strikeforce St. Louis: Heavy Artillery" fighter weigh-ins.

Today's festivities, which were free and open to the public, took place on the main concourse of Scottrade Center in St. Louis, the same venue that hosts Saturday's Showtime-televised event.

Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem tipped the scales at 253 pounds, while fellow main-eventer Brett Rogers weighed in at 264 pounds.

Fellow heavyweights Andrei Arlovski and Antonio Silva also made their co-main event official before engaging in an intense staredown, while middleweights Ronald "Jacare" Souza and Joey Villasenor also hit the scales in anticipation of their heavily anticipated 185-pound contest.

Rounding out the main card are Roger Gracie vs. Kevin Randleman and Antwain Britt vs. Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante.

The evening's seven-fight preliminary card is heavy on local talent, while Lyle Beerbohm also meets Vitor "Shaolin" Ribeiro.

I can see what you mean but maybe this is an indication he is spending most of his time on his holes and improving his game rather then looking like his usual ripped self.

Not to say AA was never focused before but maybe he is just spending more time on striking defence etc etc. I hope so anyways I really want to see him make a comeback.

for a moment I thought you 'shopped bigfoots head. If he bleached his hair he could change his nickname to bigtito.
I bet on silva. No one can focus on fighting with a woman like AA's.

well.. I was referring to her but I might be a little behind times.
mmm, dark hair, blue eyes... God bless. And Brett needs to grow the hawk back, he doesn't look right. I thought the same thing on the last TUF episode too, seeing Chuck with the hair grown out on the sides that blended in.

To the kind soul who educated me on Silva's condition Acromegaly thank you. Between tattooing bigfoot on his arm and taking steroids I doubt he is as sensitive as you are on the subject.

wonder what they call the condition of only having the fortitude to neg anonymously?

doesn't look that big next to Overeem either. he looked like a monster beside fedor.
Rogers would have looked like a monster next to Overeem 5 years ago.
