The official weigh-in event for Strikeforce Challengers VI: "Kaufman vs. Hashi" took place earlier this afternoon (Feb. 25) from the Almaden Ballroom at the Hilton San Jose.
Strikeforce Challenger Series serves as a proving ground to promote up-and-coming (and lesser known) fighters. The events are similar to what Elite XC used to promote with its SHO XC: "Challenger Series" on Showtime.
Featured on this edition of the "Challenger Series" will be a women's 135-pound title fight between Sarah Kaufman and Takayo Hashi. In addition, middleweights Trevor Prangley and Karl "Psycho" Amoussou will hook 'em up in the night's co-main event.
The event went off without a hitch. Each of the ten fighters set to compete on the Showtime televised portion of the card, including both female title fight participants, hit their respective weight marks on their first attempt.
