Trevor Prangley and Lyle Beerbohm earn submission wins at King of the Cage in Idaho
A pair of Strikeforce veterans in action was the main attraction of a King of the Cage event at Coeur d'Alene Casino Resort Hotel. KOTC Wildcard took place in Worley, Idaho. At the top of the 12 fight card Trevor Prangley (25-9) looked to build on a win earlier in the month in India.
Prangley was matched up with former welterweight George Stork (6-6). The 39 year old Prangley needed nearly full rounds to put away Stork. Midway through the third round Prangley took Stork's back and choked him out. Prangley has now won two in a row to start out 2012 after going 0-3 in 2011.
In the co-main event former Strikeforce mainstay Lyle Beerbohm (17-2) took on Oregon's Chris Ensley (5-19). Beerbohm quickly ended the squash match when the fight hit the floor. The 33 year old Beerbohm snatched Ensley's arm just past the 1:20 point of the opening round and earned the tapout win at the 1:26 point.
With the loss Ensley continues a 10 fight losing skid. Ensley is 1-14 over his last 15 bouts and has never gone to decision in 24 pro fights.
Beerbohm was released by Strikeforce in April 2011 after back to back losses to Pat Healy (27-16) and Shinya Aoki (30-6). The five year pro has won two in a row to begin 2012. Beerbohm's next bout is already scheduled for June 16th at ShoFight 20 in Missouri versus veteran Marcus Aurelio (21-9).
