ST. LOUIS – ProMMAnow.com (www.prommanow.com) was on scene for today’s official “Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu” fighter weigh-ins at the Scottrade Center in downtown St. Louis, the same location which will host Saturday’s Showtime-televised event.

Headliner Dan Henderson weighed in at 204.5 pounds, a pound-and-a-half under the light heavyweight non-title fight limit, and his opponent, Renato “Babalu” Sobral, weighed in light at 202 pounds, four pounds under the limit.

Mike Kyle and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva had the most intense stare down of the main card. The two seem eager to bang it out, let’s just hope the cage can hold these two behemoths tomorrow night.

Someone shouted out from the crowd to Paul Daley as he weighed in, “Don’t hit him after the bell you [expletive].”
