ST. LOUIS -- Strikeforce held weigh-ins to for Saturday night's bouts in front of a lively crowd at the Scottrade Center in downtown St. Louis. All of the main card fighters made weight on their first attempt.

After having trouble with getting to 185 lbs. for his bout with Jake Shields, Dan Henderson looked healthy as he easily made light heavyweight at 204.5 lbs. His opponent, Renato "Babalu" Sobral also had no trouble at the scales, as a loud group of Brazilian fans and fighter cheered him on. That crowd included Fedor-slayer Fabricio Werdum, who Strikeforce announcer misidentified as the Strikeforce heavyweight champ.

Late replacement Mike Kyle had an intense staredown with Antonio Silva, who outweighed Kyle by more than 40 lbs. for their heavyweight bout. Scott Smith, who is fighting Paul Daley at welterweight, looked thin and drawn out on the scales.

The full results from the weigh-in are below, including the undercard that is packed with local fighters. Check out a gallery from the weigh-ins at Combat Lifestyle.
