Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez (20-2) was on weight in advance of his title defense this Saturday night. Melendez takes on Jorge Masvidal (22-6) in the main event of Strikeforce's final event of 2011. Both fighters weighed-in at 155-pounds. 

Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos (10-1) and Hiroko Yamanaka (12-1) both successfully made weight for their women's featherweight title bout. Both Santos and Yamanaka weighed-in at 145-pounds. Santos will be making the third defense of her Strikeforce Women's Featherweight Title and Yamanaka is making her Strikeforce debut after fighting her first 13 fights in Japan. 

All main-card fighters were on weight. One fighter did not make weight, and he did not even come close. Jerron Peoples weighed-in at 180.5 pounds, 10.5 pounds over the 170-pound welterweight limit. Before the weigh-in he got Roger Bowling to agree to a 179-pound catchweight fight, but he did not even make that. Peoples will most likely be fined for not making weight.
