Just over a week away from the upcoming Strikeforce show in San Diego, and an injury has forced Mike Kyle to drop out of his scheduled bout against Gegard Mousasi.

Strikeforce officials confirmed Kyle’s removal from the card on Thursday when speaking to MMAWeekly.com.

According to the news, Kyle broke his hand in training and will be unable to fight next weekend. Kyle was actually just coming off a broken hand from his last fight against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.

Strikeforce officials are actively seeking a replacement to step in and face Mousasi on the April 9 card, but at this time nothing is official.

MMAWeekly.com will have more information on the updated card when it becomes available.

      Me too. I’m guessing Roger Gracie will take his place? I think that would be a great match-up too.
