Aoki vs. Beerbohm Wiki Update Wiki

Japanese cult favorite Shinya Aoki took on Lyle Beerbohm in the first bout of Strikeforce's televised card on Showtime. In the early going, Beerbohm locks up Aoki against the fence, but it backfires as Aoki drops him with a trip and quickly transitions to his back. Aoki wraps up the over-under control and sinks in the choke for a first round RNC/Neck Crank victory. Shinya Aoki takes his first victory on North American soil before the audience could settle into its seats.

163 this morning. Need to cut 7-8 pounds. I cut weight pretty easy, so it shouldn't be a problem.
