Kyle vs. Mousasi likely for September

A light heavyweight bout between Mike Kyle and Gegard Mousasi is possible for Strikeforce’s September event.

MMAjunkie.com reported the news earlier today.

Kyle last fought against Antonio Silva last December, losing via technical knockout. Still, he gave up a massive amount of weight to Silva’s enormous frame and even dropped the heavyweight in the first round.

Like his upcoming opponent, Mousasi is coming off a disappointing performance against Keith Jardine last April. The two 205 lb. fighters fought to a draw after three rounds of action, derailing Mousasi’s climb back towards the title that was once his.
