MMA Injury of the Day: Mike Kyle Out of Mousasi Fight at ‘Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley’

(Yeah, now that you mention it, you never see Mike Kyle and Newark mayor Cory Booker in the same room together…)

Due to a broken hand suffered in training, Strikeforce light-heavyweight contender Mike Kyle has been forced to withdraw from his scheduled match against Gegard Mousasi at ‘Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley‘ (April 9th, San Diego). The Kyle/Mousasi match would have likely produced the next challenger to Dan Henderson‘s 205-pound title. Strikeforce is currently looking for a replacement opponent for Mousasi, who has scored wins over Jake O’Brien and Tatsuya Mizuno while competing in DREAM since losing the Strikeforce light-heavyweight title to Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal last April.

The news of Kyle’s injury withdrawal comes just a day after we learned that Jon Fitch — who trains alongside Kyle at American Kickboxing Academy — would not be making his rematch date with BJ Penn because of a shoulder injury. Speaking of which, Carlos Condit is down to step in against BJ Penn…as soon as the UFC asks him to.

Condit > Alves > Penn

Penn vs Condit or Alves would be awesome, but I see BJ submitting both.

I don't think Kyle's participation in this fight is what is making any of us looking forward to this bout. If they get any warm body 205 pounds and under and I get to watch Mousasi fight I'm still stoked. As for Penn I would love to see him b the return fight for Kos if hes healthy enough by July.

Did he paint the tips of his nips white just for the weigh ins?

Condit/Penn TRUMPS THE SHIT out of Penn/Fitch 2: Who Gives A Flying Shit?

As for Strikeforce; he's small, but I bet Tim Kennedy would be game, even if it is at 205.

anyone else think condit and penn is a better fight than fitch/penn II?

This picture is from his silva fight? He didn't have to cut weight for that. PS he did better than Fedor. Obviously Kyle > Fedor.

Anyone else notice the second face that he's sporting? Sort of looks like Total Recall...
