StrikeForce Weigh In ! highlights

All fighters were on weight today at the weigh-ins for Strikeforce:Lawler vs. Shields. There was the usual drama, but the men who provided the drama may surprise you. Lawler and Shuelds, previously fairly quiet and respectful to one another, engaged in an intense staredown. Shields finally broke away, though I wonder if Lawler was in a staredown or if he just had on his usual, stoic face.

Phil Baroni came out in a bathrobe, and yelled at the Showtime employee trying to direct the fighters for cameras. Nick Diaz responded to a fan who yelled, "Nick the [expletive]" by flipping the middle finger. Read on for full weigh-in results.
