Strikeforce: Fedor vs Henderson

Every fighter is on weight for Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates. The main event will feature legends Fedor Emelianenko and Dan Henderson, and also features a five-round title fight between champion Marloes Coenen and Miesha Tate in the women’s bantamweight division.

Local fighter Gabe Salinas Jones will be on the prelim card against Bryan Humes. Humes hasn’t fought in over a year, losing via decision to Paul Buentello at Shark Fights in May of 2010. Humes holds a professional record of 6-1 and sources tell us he will be cornered in part by APFC promoter Rich Seldal.

Salinas-Jones has never lost as a pro or amateur, although he did have a loss in Greece that is not reflected in his record because it was a non-sanctioned event. Salinas-Jones is getting to be that rare breed — a heavyweight with a slick ground game. 3 of his 4 pro wins have come by way of submission.

Here are the weigh-in results:

Fedor Emelianenko (223) vs. Dan Henderson (207)
Marloes Coenen (135) vs. Miesha Tate (135)
