Mike Kyle: I'm fighting Gegard Mousasi at Strikeforce event on March 3

Mike Kyle vs. Gegard Mousasi?

According to "MAK's" official Twitter account, he's been paired off with "The Dreamcatcher" for the Strikeforce: "Tate vs. Rousey" Showtime-televised event on March 3, 2012, from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

it's on march 3 Ohio baby. Mak Kyle and mossasi beast mode gerrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!

Strikeforce has yet to confirm the potential match-up.

With Muhammed Lawal on the shelf following a positive test for steroids, every light heavyweight fight under the Strikeforce banner can now be considered a title eliminator.

That's because the promotion's 205-pound roster is as thin as it has ever been, especially now that Dan Henderson abandoned ship for the shores of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) late last year.

In addition, Lorenz Larkin's stock has dropped following his loss to "King Mo" (which may be reversed to a "no contest" pending Lawal's appeal) and Ovince St. Preux was recently defeated by Mousasi.

Could one of these two men become the next Strikeforce light heavyweight champion? Or will Raphael Cavalcante have something to say about that?

The Showtime-televised event will feature newly-minted women's champion Miesha Tate putting her 135-pound title on the line against undefeated Judo specialist Ronda Rousey.

Other match-ups booked for "The Discovery City" include K.J. Noons vs. Josh Thomson, former women's champion Sarah Kaufman vs. Alexis Davis and Paul Daley vs. Kazuo Misaki.
