Strikeforce Challengers 19: Larkin vs Rossborough Weigh-In Results
All but one of the Strikeforce Challengers 19 fighters have made their bouts official.
The official weigh-in ceremony for Friday’s Strikeforce Challengers 19 card took place today in the Key West Ballroom of Las Vegas’ Palms Casino Resort. This is said to be the last pre-fight event before the incoming Strikeforce’s show, which will be aired live on Showtime at 11 p.m. ET in The Pearl at Las Vegas, Nevada.
All fighters except one have hit their committed weights. Quinn Mulhern missed his 170-pound limit by coming in a whopping five pounds over the threshold. He will now face Danny Davis in a catchweight bout of 176.5-pounds.
Strikeforce Challengers 19 will be the promotion’s third MMA event in Las Vegas. Starting with the Strikeforce Challengers 17 card last July, all the upcoming Challengers Series will be held in The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, the company confirmed that they will return to the venue on November 18 to host their final Challengers show for 2011.
