In addition to negotiations for a rematch between Mitsuhiro Ishida and Gilbert Melendez, Strikeforce is reportedly in talks with undefeated lightweight Lyle Beerbohm regarding a possible bout against Melendez this Saturday at Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Diaz.

Melendez was originally booked to rematch Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson, but Thomson was recently forced out of the contest due to a broken leg. The promotion has been seeking a replacement for nearly a week but has not yet secured a fighter to square of with Melendez on April 11th at the HP Pavillion in San Jose, California.
