The Strikeforce womens’ middleweight title bout between Gina Carano and Cris “Cyborg” Santos is now official. The two had no trouble making weight on Friday and will meet Saturday night at the HP Pavilion.

Carano, who weighed in four-and-a-half pounds over for her most recent fight, against Kaitlin Young, this time was two pounds under. She stepped on the scale at 143 pounds. Her bout with Cyborg has a weight limit of 145 pounds.

“I wasn’t depleted. I feel good. I didn’t have to go in the sauna,” Carano told Ron Kruck on InsideMMA after the weigh-in. “I’m a little more with it this weigh-in.”

Talking about her opposition, Carano said it was Cyborg’s “aggressive style” that she’ll have to most watch out for. “She’s just a good all-around fighter.”

Cyborg weighed in at 144.5 pounds. For her last bout, against Hitomi Akano, she was also over weight, a whopping seven pounds.

After weighing in, Cyborg told InsideMMA that this bout being the headliner is “the payment for all the work the women fighters are doing in MMA.”

Of Carano, she said, “I’m aware Gina is the female face of MMA (right now). It will be different in a couple months.”

She also revealed her plan for inside the cage on Saturday night. “I am going to be Cris Cyborg, aggressive. I will do everything I always do in a fight.”

Renato “Babalu” Sobral also came in weigh underweight for his fight, his first Strikeforce light heavyweight title defense, weighing 201 pounds. He defends his belt against a new name to most American fans, Gegard Mousasi, who weighed in at 204 pounds.

Gilbert Melendez and Mitsuhiro Ishida, meeting for the Strikeforce interim lightweight championship, both were spot-on at 155 pounds.
