Strikeforce results: Gilbert Melendez vs Jorge Masvidal photos gallery from San Diego

via <a href=""></a>

Strikeforce: "Melendez vs. Masvidal" took place last night (Sat., Dec. 17, 2011) from the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California, featuring Gilbert Melendez successfully retaining both his lightweight championship and his status as the face of the promotion.

Jorge Masvidal was "Gamebred," though. Big ups.

Cristiane Santos also made it a night to remember (for the rest of us, at least), as it took her just 16 seconds to knock out Hiroko Yamanaka in their featherweight title tilt. Move along, folks, nothing to see here.

In other action, Gegard Mousasi put himself in line for a light heavyweight championship bout with a unanimous decision win over Ovince St. Preux while K.J. Noons may have done the same at 155-pounds with his win over Billy Evangelista.

A photo gallery (via is available for your viewing pleasure after the jump.
