It was almost flawless. Almost.
At today's weigh-ins for Strikeforce Challengers 20, all but one competitor made weight for their scheduled bouts tomorrow. Anthony Smith initially weighed-in at 190 pounds. He was given two hours to lose the weight and reach the 186 pound limit. Upon a second weigh-in, he could only muster a two-pound loss and weighed in at 188 pounds.
In the main event, Antwain Britt will be making his middleweight debut against Lumumba Sayers. U.S. judo Olympic bronze medalist Ronda Rousey faces her toughest test to date against striker Julia Budd.
