A light-heavyweight bout between Mike Kyle and Gegard Mousasi has reportedly been scratched from the Strikeforce show in March.

    And this sucks, it would have been a great match-up between two exciting stand-up guys.

    I hope they won’t bring in one of those boring blankets to fill in.

  2. Al says:

    Mousasi should just come to the UFC…be nice to see him at MW

  3. Trent says:

    I think this was the 3rd time they were scheduled to fight…. damit
