New, comments

Strikeforce light-heavyweight Mike Kyle lost to Gegard Mousasi earlier tonight by first-round rear-naked choke. It's the promotion's final event, and for Kyle it's apparently his final fight. He told Ariel Helwani post-fight that this fight is his last one.

Kyle went 2-4-1 (1 NC) in Strikeforce, and his career highlight with the promotion was a KO win over Rafael Cavalcante in 2009. He also went 2-1 in the UFC, including a KO win over James Irvin. The 32-year-old Kyle finishes with an overall MMA record of 19-9-1 and 2 NCs.
