Gegard Mousasi vs. Mike Kyle at September 10th Strikeforce Event

Former Strikeforce and current DREAM light heavyweight champion, Gegard Mousasi will face MMA veteran, Mike Kyle on a yet to be announced Strikeforce card on September 10th, 2011. The two were originally set to meet at the ‘Diaz vs. Daley’ card in April, but Kyle was forced to withdraw due to a broken hand.

Mousasi wound up fighting to a disappointing and controversial draw against late-replacement Keith Jardine. Prior to that he’d captured the DREAM light heavyweight title and defeated the K-1 heavyweight champion, Kyotaro over three rounds. The “Armenian Assassin” is already slated to defend his DREAM light-heavyweight title against Hiroshi Izumi at DREAM 17 in Tokyo on July 16th.

Kyle most recently suffered a TKO loss against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, after stepping in as an injury replacement for Valentijn Overeem last December. He’s 2-0 as a light-heavyweight under the Strikeforce banner, with stoppage wins over former champion, Rafael Cavalcante and Ron “Abongo” Humphrey.
