Strikeforce Challengers 14 results: Beerbohm suffers first loss

Saturday, February 19, 2011

Lyle Beerbohm is no longer undefeated, as Pat Healy gave him the first loss of his career in an entertaining fight on Friday night’s Strikeforce Challengers card.

After 15 minutes of back-and-forth action, all three judges scored it 29-28 for Healy, as did I. The victory improved Healy’s record to 26-17, while Beerbohm fell to 15-1.

“Good fight,” Healy said afterward. “If they want a rematch, any time. I think I out-worked him, out-hustled him, won the exchanges on the feet and had some real close submissions.”

A rematch with Beerbohm is a possibility, although Healy said he’d rather face the winner of the upcoming fight between Jorge Masvidal and Billy Evangelista.
