All Fighters Make Weight for Saturday’s ‘Strikeforce: Feijao vs. Henderson’ Event

(Hendo has been eating his Wheaties.)

The weigh-ins for Saturday night’s Strikeforce: Feijao vs. Henderson event were held at the Arnold Sports Festival at the Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio today and they went off without a hitch with each of the fighters making his or her respective mandatory weight requirements.

Former PRIDE welterweight and middleweight champion Dan Henderson looks to be in the best shape he’s been in in recent years. The 40-year-old former Olympic wrestler tipped the scales at a half pound under the 205-pound weight limit for his light heavyweight title bout with current champ Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante, who also tipped the scales at an official weight of 204.5 pounds.

Strikeforce welterweight champ Marloes Coenen hit her required mark of 135 pounds for her first title defense since defeating Sarah Kaufman last October to win the strap. Coenen’s opponent for tomorrow night’s event, Liz Carmouche came in one pound lighter than the Dutch fighter, weighing in at 134 pounds.

I like Hendo but why does he always have an expression on his face which makes me think he might be retarded? Duuuuuuurp

I think Mitch should go against Ian, and Brian against Marc. Makes more sense, don't it? It's like Ian and Mitch didn't even cut weight, they were probably eating right up to the weigh-in. Maybe even having a sammich while on the scale. And the sammiches were made by Marloes and Liz.

Who the fuck is Mitch Whitesel? He is either fighting out of his weight class or really missed the mark. Either way neither of those situations hardly ever turn out good.
