Strikeforce Weigh-In Results: Gilbert Melendez vs. Jorge Masvidal

The final Strikeforce event for 2011 takes place Saturday in San Diego, CA, headlined by Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez vs. Jorge Masvidal with Women's Featherweight Champion Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos vs. the debuting Hiroko Yamanaka in the co-main event.

Friday's weigh-ins made the card official with all fighters making weight. The one anomaly was a prelim bout between Roger Bowling and Jerron Peoples which was made a 179-pound catchweight fight. Bowling is giving up 10.5 pounds to Peoples, so perhaps he simply didn't care what his opponent weighed. No word on whether Peoples is giving up any of his purse.

Can Melendez keep his streak going? Will Santos need more than a round in the cage to win? Comment below and let's hear what you have to say.
