via assets.sbnation.com

The official weigh in event for Strikeforce: "Melendez vs Masvidal" took place today (Dec. 16, 2011) at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California.

All but one of the 18 fighters scheduled to compete tomorrow night hit their respective weights without incident. The lone dissenter, Jerron Peoples, managed to come in one and a half pounds heavy for his catchweight bout. He has additional time to lose the weight or forfeit a portion of his fight purse.

"Melendez vs. Masvidal" will feature lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez putting his 155-pound belt on the line against a very dangerous, and hungry, Jorge Masvidal in the main event of the evening.

In addition, former Strikeforce light heavyweight and 2008 DREAM middleweight grand prix champion, Gegard Mousasi, will look to get back in the promotion's win column in more than one year when he takes on former University of Tennessee defensive standout Ovince St. Preux.

K.J. Noons and Cristiane Santos are also in action.
