Shinya Aoki's opponent for Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley is set. On April 9th, the Japanese star will be returning to Strikeforce against a guy who is also known for his "fancy pants", Lyle Beerbohm. MMA-Japan has it:

The Baka Survivor Shinya Aoki will be facing Lyle Beerbohm on the April 9th Strikeforce event.  This comes from the man himself, Mr. Aoki... Contract signed, i's dotted, t's crossed.

Lyle "Fancy Pants" Beerbohm will have a quick turn around from his first career loss against Pat Healy last month,  and faced against the #5 ranked lightweight, he has a good chance to rebound in a big way. Aoki on the other hand, took a massive flying knee from K-1 champ and cosplayer, Jienotsu on the last time we saw him compete. Now, he's heading for his second bout in US soil, and he plans to do better this time against a guy with equally colorful tights.
