Exclusive: Lyle Beerbohm Re-Signs With Strikeforce

Lyle BeerbohmThe Strikeforce lightweight division just got that much deeper, for that much longer, as undefeated lightweight smashing machine Lyle “Fancy Pants” Beerbohm has recently re-inked an extensive contract with the increasingly talent stacked promotion. .

FiveOuncesofPain.com was able to learn of the signing through sources close to the situation.

Stretching two years in length, the contract guarantees Beerbohm a minimum of six fights, capping off at a maximum of twelve scraps running through 2011.

Rocking an unblemished 13-0 record with 12 finishes to his credit, Lyle holds impressive first round stoppages over UFC veterans Gerald Strebendt, Rafaello Oliveira and Duane Ludwig.

Beerbohm made his Strikeforce debut on June 19 of this year when he caught Duane Ludwig in a “Beer Naked Choke” in the opening round.

In his last appearance in the cage, Lyle stopped Josh Martin via frankensteiner elbows during “Arena Rumble” on September 12, opening multiple lacerations on his battered opponent that required an array of staples and stitches to patch up.

Beerbohm is currently set to make his next appearance at “Arena Rumble II” on November 28 from the Yakima Sun Dome in Yakima, Washington against Alonzo Martinez.

While no date or opponent has been set for Beerbohm’s return to Strikeforce, sources place the potential bout in early 2010.

    The guy deserves a title shot right now, never mind 2010.

    After his fight with Martinez(if he wins) hopefully Strikeforce will put him in with a top LW fighter for the #1 contender spot. Give the winner a shot at Thompson or Melindez both good match ups with Beerbohm.

    fanoftna is correct about the origin of the “Frankensteiner”. However, my use of the term is a spin-off of the term in reference to elbows that cause Frankenstein-esque wounds (massive stitches, staples, etc.). Hope that helps :-)

    Pretty much the best thing Strikeforce could do. I believe that this guy will hold the belt before his 2 years contract is up.

    Hopefully he uses these 2 years to really mature as a fighter, because I would love to see him fighting the best in the UFC

    Speaking of wrestling here is a huge rumor starting to go around. Has anybody heard about the DW interview where he said the ufc may be willing to take in a partner if the right person came along. Any coincedence that wwe VP Shane MacMahon is resinging from the company. Shane was the guy who got the wwe into global marketing through the last 15 years or so. I think the ufc, who is really looking to move forward with its product globally would really benifit from picking this guy up(if they havent already).

    Yesss Shane O Mac. WHo knows if shane is gonna be a partner with Zuffa but i could almost guarantee he has got the 100 mil or so that has been rumored to be the worth of 10% of Zuffa.

    First match is Shane vs. Dana in a ladder match.

    “First match is Shane vs. Dana in a ladder match.” Yesss,yes,yes, that would be awsome and well worth $45 dollars to see one of those duche bags get beat up.Hopefully a ladder lands on one of their faces.
