I'll take Frank, Melendez, Cyborg, Rogers & Benji. Don't really know enough about the undercard to guess.

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.



Strikeforce: “Shamrock vs. Diaz” Weigh-In Results (Main Card):

-Frank Shamrock (180) vs. Nick Diaz (180)

-Gilbert Melendez (154) vs. Rodrigo Damm (154.5)

-Cristiane Santos (152) vs. Hitomi Akano (143.5)*

-Brett Rogers (262.5) vs. Ron Humphrey (239.5)



Untelevised Card:

-Luke Rockhold (186) vs. Buck Meredith (185)

-Eric Lawson (186) vs. Waylon Kennell (185.5)

-Raul Castillo (183) vs. Brandon Michaels (187.5)*

-James Terry (170) vs. Zak Bucia (170)

-Jeremy Tavares (134.5) vs. Shingo Kohara (136)



*Michaels fined 20 percent of purse for 1.5 lbs. overage.

No. Just like Matt/Alves, she failed, but her opponent agreed to the fight anyway.
