    With Beerbohms potential at his weight class I wonder why Strikeforce isnt showcasing this guy more? If Strikeforce gets Hermes Franca I would like to see these two lock up.

    I wonder how much longer it will be before UFC checks him out. He’s beaten some quality opponents, so you’d think they’d be interested.

  • Makington says:

    Exactly what I was thinking Fan. With Lyle’s raw talent, he should really be fighting bigger names. It’s hard to believe the guy is still so new to MMA. I would love to see him in the UFC but he’s very happy with Scott Coker so I don’t think he will be leaving Strikeforce anytime soon.

  • Bullylover says:

    hopefully we’ll see beerbohm fighting jorge gurgel for the the no 1 contender spot soon.

    Beerbohm vs Gurgel would be a interseting fight Bullylover, I would lean towards Jorge in that one but it would be exciting.
