Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro and Justin “The Silverback” Wilcox meet on Friday night on Showtime in the main event of Strikeforce Challengers 12. They, as well as the rest of the fight card, weighed in Thursday, making all of the bouts official.
Once considered among the Top 10 lightweight fighters in the world, Ribeiro is trying to get back on the right track after losing three of his four most recent bouts. Wilcox is looking to use Ribeiro as a steppingstone from the Challengers events up to Strikeforce’s main cards.
