The official weigh-in event for Strikeforce Challengers 9: "Del Rosario vs. Mahe" took place last night from "The Ice Box" at Comcast Arena in Everett, WA.
The last of the formalities before tomorrow night's Showtime televised event came and went without a hitch. Each of the ten participants who will be featured on the five-fight main card hit their respective weights on their first attempt.
Undefeated heavyweight prospect Shane Del Rosario and his monster opponent Lolohea Mahe (4-1-1) are set to slug it out in the night's main event. Mahe came in just under the heavyweight division limit at 264 pounds. Del Rosario, who is giving up over 20 pounds in weight to the Hawaiian will certainly have his hands full if he wants to remain unbeaten.
Strikeforce Women's Welterweight Champion Sarah Kaufman (11-0) will also be in action against fellow female notable and international veteran Roxanne Modafferi (15-5). Both women easily made the 135 pound weight for their co-main event, world title fight.
Check out the official weigh-in results below.
Shane Del Rosario (243.6) vs. Lolohea Mahe (264)
