'Fancy Pants' Stays Perfect In The Cage

0

Phil Lanides sent along the following:

Lyle “Fancy Pants” Beerbohm entered the cage for his bout with Josh Martin at the inaugaral Arena Rumble card in Spokane, Washington with a combined 22-0 amateur/pro MMA record. Less than a minute and a half but more than 20 stitches (for his opponent) later, plus 30 staples thrown in for good measure, his perfect record was still intact.

With the pro-Beerbohm crowd of an estimated 5,000-6,000 fans raucosly cheering and chanting, the former Washington convict made his triumphant return to the area, finishing off Martin with elbows on the ground, garnering the TKO victory, which gives him 12 stoppages in 13 pro fights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5wDxRxJ2TM

“I learned from the [Rafaello] Oliveira fight not to start slow,” explained Beerbohm. “I just want to get in there and get it done. So I went in there, got to the ground, and started dropping elbows. I landed seven unanswered ones, and I knew it was over.”

So, what does “Fancy Pants” see on the horizon for himself? “It’s going to be StrikeForce, I’m sure. I’ve got to find out what’s going on with my contract, but I want the belt. I want Thomson, Melendez, whoever. My ultimate goal is to be the 155 lbs. champ for StrikeForce.”
