The 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.
