Strikeforce held the 14th in their Challengers series last night in Austin, Texas.
The main event between Pat Healy and Lyle Beerbohm turned out to be a barnburner, with both men scrapping it out for three full rounds. It was a close fight, but Healy had the edge in the exchanges and emerged with a unanimous decision victory.
Elsewhere Carlo Prater wasted no time in locking up an anaconda choke just 38 seconds into his fight with Bryan Travers, while Randy’s son Ryan Couture looked good in his second professional outing, and earned a rear-naked choke victory over Lee Higgins with just 19 seconds left on the clock in the final round.
