Mike Kyle Breaks Hand, Withdraws From Gegard Mousasi Fight at Strikeforce ‘Diaz vs. Daley’

Multiple outlets are reporting that Mike Kyle has been forced to withdraw from his upcoming bout against Gegard Mousasi at Strikeforce “Diaz vs. Daley” due to a broken hand. MMA Weekly confirmed the news with Strikeforce officials.

Strikeforce officials confirmed Kyle’s removal from the card on Thursday when speaking to

According to the news, Kyle broke his hand in training and will be unable to fight next weekend. Kyle was actually just coming off a broken hand from his last fight against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, and it appears it’s happened again.

The search for a replacement is underway, but with the fight only nine days away we probably shouldn’t expect anything spectacular.

Mousasi vs. Kyle was supposed to determine the number one contender for Dan Henderson’s Strikeforce light heavyweight title. It remains to be seen how that will work out with Kyle out of the fight.
