A light-heavyweight bout between Mike Kyle and Gegard Mousasi has reportedly been scratched from the Strikeforce show in March.
Reasoning for the removal is an undisclosed injury Kyle received presumably while training for the bout.
Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey takes place Saturday, March 3rd from Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Along with the main card that airs on Showtime, the preliminary card will feature the return of Ryan Couture, as well as hard hitting MMA veteran, Scott Smith. The full card is as follows:
This is the second time Kyle has been forced to withdraw from a matchup with former Strikeforce champ, Gegard Mousasi.
No word on whether or not Mousasi will keep his place on the card, or be shifted to a future event.
