Mike Kyle Out of Strikeforce Fight Against Gegard Mousasi on April 9

A broken hand has forced Mike Kyle out of his light heavyweight matchup with former champion Gegard Mousasi at next Saturday’s “Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley” event, Strikeforce confirmed to on Thursday.

A replacement has yet to be announced for the bout on the April 9 Showtime-televised main card.

Kyle (18-8-1) suffered a broken hand in a second-round TKO loss to heavyweight Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in December before re-injuring it on Wednesday, while Mousasi (30-3-1) won the DREAM title with a pair of wins after losing the Strikeforce title to “King” Mo Lawal last April.

The April 9 event in San Diego features welterweight champ Nick Diaz vs. Paul Daley and lightweight champ Gilbert Melendez vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri.
