According to multiple sources, he has verbally agreed to fight on December 4 in St. Louis versus Scott Smith. Though Scott “Hand of Steel” Smith is making a move down and Paul “Semtex” Daley is having trouble going under 171 pounds, the match will take place in a welterweight division.

Roberts: Pretty Good Chance Smith is Moving to Welterweight

Mike Robert says of his Strikeforce's middleweight ward, Scott Smith: He is most likely to bid 185 goodbye soon.

The Monday edition of The MMA Hour revealed that Smith is giving a drop-down to welterweight a good chance. Although the “Hands of Steel” has fought as a light heavyweight before, he has never come on to the cage as a welterweight. But Roberts is seriously considering the matter as well:

“The funny thing is that we were in San Diego for the Mark Munoz and James Irvin’s fight, and he was walking around at at around 189 pounds right now. And that’s not really super working out hard or nothing. So I believe there’s a pretty good chance he’ll be down at 170 for his next fight.”

Smith’s record went 5-3 with one contest following his release from the UFC. His most popular win to date was his “come-from-behind victory” over Cung Le. But his latest loss was also suffered from Le in a rematch staged by Strikeforce.

Welterweight is considered to be Strikeforce’s weakest, and its champion Nick Diaz has not been paired up with as many good contenders yet.
