All the fighters slated to participate in “Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey” tipped the scales Friday afternoon inside Greater Columbus Convention Center in Ohio. Unfortunately for fight fans, unlike older brother UFC, Strikeforce does not offer live video of their weigh-ins.
Thankfully, MMAFighting has released the most significant footage from today’s festivities.
The highly-anticipated bantamweight brawl between women’s champ Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey (Pictured) headlines Saturday’s show. Things got a tad physical between the two after each notched 134.5 pounds on the scale.
Tate lead with her head during their face-off, which prompted Rousey to push back with her dome. The ladies were separated before anything absurd occurred, but Tate’s forehead was noticeably red following the altercation.
Nationwide Arena in Columbus will host Saturday’s event. Showtime broadcasts the card’s main bouts at 10PM ET/PT.
