Keith Jardine Signs with Strikeforce, Steps in Against Gegard Mousasi on April 9

Keith JardineUFC veteran Keith Jardine has replaced an injured Mike Kyle and will make his Strikeforce debut against Gegard Mousasi on the “Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley” main card on Showtime next Saturday, April 9 in San Diego.

Showtime announced the matchup during Friday’s Strikeforce Challenger 15 broadcast.

Jardine (17-9-1) scored a first-round KO in March to improve to 2-1 since being released by the UFC after four-straight losses, while Mousasi (30-3-1) won the DREAM belt with back-to-back wins after dropping the Strikeforce light heavyweight title to “King Mo” Lawal last April.

With the UFC’s recent purchase of Strikeforce, Jardine is essentially returning to the organization he called home from 2005 through 2010 after appearing on The Ultimate Fighter 2.
