There is only one thing I dislike more than a thug.. That is an ego driven idiot so I hope Diaz knocks Shamrock on his rump

Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos missed her target at the weigh-ins for Strikeforce: “Shamrock vs. Diaz” on Friday in San Jose.



Santos was scheduled to face Japanese submission specialist Hitomi Akano at 145lbs, but weighed in seven pounds over at 152lbs. Akano weighed in under the limit at 143.5lbs.



According to California State Athletic Commission officials, Santos has until 8 p.m. P.S.T. to cut 2.5lbs., which would put her within 6lbs. of her opponent, the maximum weight overage the state allows for bouts to take place.



“She shouldn’t have a problem cutting that by tonight,” a representative of Santos’ camp told MMAWeekly.com shortly afterwards.



The remaining main card weigh-ins for the Saturday event at the HP Pavilion went off without a hitch.

So did she make weight or what?No. Just like Matt/Alves, she failed, but her opponent agreed to the fight anyway.

Gah, that really sucks. Oh well though, the show must go on.

Much respect to the other girl for taking the fight anyway

I honestly feel like if you make weight and don't want to fight the over weight person you should still get paid.
You obviously put in the work, they did not.

What may turn out to be more interesting is when Gina and Cyborg fight....who, if either, will actually make weight?
