Not every fighter initially made weight Friday at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon for Saturday's Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy. In fact, the only one who didn't is middleweight champion and co-headliner Luke Rockhold.
In championship bouts, fighters are not afforded a customary one pound allowance and must make the precise weight limit of their division. The AKA middleweight product was unable to get below 185.5lbs and was given two hours to lose one-half pound. His opponent in Tim Kennedy weighed in at 184.5 pounds. According to Showtime Sports, Rockhold eventually reached 185 pounds approximately 20 minutes after initially weighing-in.
