Nick Diaz (24-7, 1 no contest, 169.8) vs. Paul Daley (27-9-2, 169.4) for the Strikeforce welterweight title

Notes:  Daley and Diaz were pulled apart but everyone else was professional.  Diaz seemed in a bad mood, but he seems like that a lot of the time.  Everyone was breathing easy on Daley, who arrived in California at 187 and had missed weight in five of his last 11 fights.  When he stepped on the scale, everyone was looking to see if he'd made it, which he did with room to spare.  Crowd was more packed than usual for a Strikeforce show at weigh-ins.  All the foreigners were booed.  Jardine and Melendez got the best reactions.

The big talk around was that all of the reporters banned from UFC (Josh Gross, Loretta Hunt, Sherdog.com) that were staples at Strikeforce got the word this week that they would not be credentialed.
