Strikeforce officials announced the new bout on Wednesday.
Cavalcante (15-4-1) has run into bad luck like nobody’s business since coming razor close to being the No. 1 lightweight in the world just a few years back.
Injuries plagued the Brazilian for a while then after getting signed by Strikeforce he came up short in his fight against former champion Josh Thomson last October. Most scored Cavalcante winning the fight, but the judges went the other way, giving Thomson the win.
Now he hopes to return and erase all of the bad memories from his past few fights and start fresh with his fight against Lyle Beerbohm.
Beerbohm (15-2) started out his career with fifteen straight victories, but has since lost his last two fights in a row.
Beerbohm will hope to bounce back and escape losing three in a row when he faces Cavalcante later this month.
