LAS VEGAS –  Strikeforce Challengers 19 fighter weigh-ins, where all but one of the evening’s 18 competitors made their bouts official.

Main-event fighters Lorenz Larkin and Nick Rossborough each tipped the scales at 206 pounds.

Today’s festivities, which were free and open to the public, took place in the Key West Ballroom of Las Vegas’ Palms Casino Resort. The Pearl, also located at Palms Casino Resort, hosts Friday’s card.

The evening’s main card airs on Showtime.

The only competitor to miss the mark was late addition Quinn Mulhern, who registered 176.5 pounds for his welterweight bout with Danny Davis. Mulhern has been given additional time to lose the remaining weight.
