Mousasi vs. Kyle and Couture vs. Heun in Columbus, Ohio on March 3rd

Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, Gegard Mousasi will meet veteran, Mike Kyle and Ryan Couture will go up against Conor Heun at Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey in Columbus, Ohio on March 3rd, 2012.

Mousasi is coming off a unanimous decision win over Ovince St. Preux, putting him right in the title picture for the vacant light heavyweight title. He was expected to face Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal next but a failed drugs test put that fight to rest. Kyle defeated Marcos Rogerio de Lima via decision last September. Prior to that he lost to Antonio “Big Foot” Silva.

Couture is coming off a majority decision win over Maka Watson on the September Challengers series event. That victory followed his first professional career loss to take his record to 3-1 overall. Heun was last seen picking up a unanimous decision win over Magno Almeida last June. Prior to that he’d lost back-to-back fights.
