MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson Weigh-in Results: Fedor Has a Sixteen Pound Weight Advantage

It may be five years too late for the winner of tonight’s Fedor vs. Henderson bout to gain anything other than bragging rights, but that isn’t stopping us from being excited. Those of you who saw yesterday’s link dump already know that Fedor is only seven pounds lighter than he was when he fought Antonio Silva. Even though the scale doesn’t show it, Fedor looks more athletic than we’re accustomed to seeing him. Of course, if you’ve been paying attention you aren’t too surprised. Dan Henderson made weight as well, tipping the scales at 207 pounds.

To get an idea of how small Fedor is for a heavyweight, skip to about the two minute mark. Even though Fedor has the sixteen pound weight advantage, you wouldn’t know it by looking at him standing next to Hendo. Henderson, who pretty much came into this fight at light heavyweight, appears to be the same size as Fedor.  And remember, Dan Henderson isn’t exactly the Anthony Johnson of the light heavyweight division.

Everyone else on tonight’s card made weight for their fights. Yes, this includes Paul Daley, who weighed in at 171 pounds for his fight against Tyron Woodley. Full results, courtesy of mmafighting.com, are after the jump.

I wish Coker would walk around all day with one of those gag balls strapped to his head, you know like the one on pulp fiction. The main event should be great, I can't believe Hendo is gonna get knocked out for the first time. Nuts!

Strike Force should be a womens' MMA organization. Pride Neva Die! but lately SF=Senior Fights.

Coker wasn't elbowed, he motioned for dude to move over to the center.

Snickered at Vadim elbowing Coker out of the way at 1:58. "Move over chub-boy, my time to shine". And Scotty, with a frowny-face, lets him steamroll him, just like his new bosses at Zuffa do.
Bye-Bye, Scotty.

Dear Santa,
I would very much like to inseminate Misha Tate, i've been a very good boy all year so please make my wish come true.

@LordCoSax: And here I thought I was the only one with a boner right now. Glad you noticed it too.

The ring girl on the left in the screen cap looks like Frank Trigg in a wig and makeup

The fact that Fedor looks like so much trimmer but only lost 7 lbs suggests that he did alot more than lay off the ice cream and vodka. He must have really focused on strength and conditioning which should only positively affect his gas tank. Gentlemen, I believe the comeback begins tonight! Stoked!
