Lyle Beerbohm Says He’ll Get First Crack at Shaolin Ribeiro In Strikeforce

Filed under: , ,

Lyle “Fancy Pants” Beerbohm says he’s in for a May 15 bout welcoming Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro into Strikeforce.

The bout, first reported as a possibility by MMA Junkie last month, had been in doubt in recent weeks, and last week MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani was told by sources close to the show that Ribeiro could possibly face Mitsuhiro Ishida in a rematch of their 2004 fight. But it appears the muddied picture is clear to Beerbohm, who says though the bout is not yet officially signed, it has been promised to him.
