World Series of Fighting (WSOF) has added Strikeforce veteran Lyle Beerbohm to its upcoming mixed martial arts (MMA) fight card, airing on the NBC Sports Network from the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Nov. 3, 2012.
From "Fancy Pants" (via Pro MMA Now):
"I’m excited to be with the WSOF…to be fighting on TV for a promotion that is poised for such big things is awesome. I’m grateful to Jason Chambers and Apex Sports Agency for making this deal possible. Now, I’m ready to bring Fancy Pants to the world!"
Beerbohm (19-2) was bounced from Strikeforce after posting back-to-back losses to Pat Healy (Challengers 14) and Shinya Aoki (Diaz vs. Daley). Since then, the rugged wrestler has gone on a 4-0 tear with three finishes, including a hard-fought victory over longtime veteran Marcus Aurelio at ShoFight 20 last June.
