I figured instead of making a bunch of different threads on a injury update or a fight announcement why not just make a big one like the MLB,Hockey,Pro Wrestling threads.
We can still make threads for fight events but everything else could go in here.
Mike Kyle out of Gegard Mousasi fight
A very recent broken hand has forced light-heavyweight Mike Kyle (18-8-1 MMA, 2-3-1 SF) to withdraw from a fight next Saturday with former champ Gegard Mousasi (30-3-1 MMA, 2-1 SF) at "Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley."
Afromowitz said the search for a replacement opponent is underway.
The bout was billed as a title eliminator for the right to face mewly minted titleholder Dan Henderson. It's unclear whether that designation will hold in light of the withdrawal.
Representatives from American Kickboxing Academy where Kyle trains were unaware of the injury situation when contacted today, but said the fighter suffered a broken hand in his most recent fight this past December against Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva. Pyle lost the fight by knockout after rocking Silva with a punch early in the fight.
I wonder who Strikeforce is going to put in for Kyle.Maybe this is a chance to put someone from the UFC in.
