Mike Kyle vs. Wayne Cole Added to EXC/Strikeforce Show

Sam Caplan Reports:

A bout featuring heavyweights Mike Kyle and Wayne Cole has been scheduled to replace a postponed EliteXC welterweight title match between Jake Shields and Drew Fickett that had been planned for Saturday's co-promoted card by Strikeforce and EliteXC.

It's not exactly Shields/Fickett, but Kyle carries a degree of name recognition from his time with the UFC and he is usually good for some type of entertaining scrap...even if we're talking car wreck "can't look away type entertaining.  Cole is basically the same knock out or get knocked out guy that Kyle is.

Each guy has 16 career fights with 9 ending with a KO or TKO.  So plan on watching someone go to sleep on Saturday.

It now looks like Shields/Fickett is going to be moved to the undercard of the KJ Noons/Yves Edwards Lightweight Championship show from Hawaii on June 14.  Kala Kolohe Hose will also be a part of that card.
