Mike Kyle vs. Gegard Mousasi appears to be no more.

According to a report from MMA Weekly, "MAK" has been injured and forced to withdraw from his Light Heavyweight fight against "The Dreamcatcher" at the Strikeforce: "Tate vs. Rousey" event on March 3, 2012, from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

The nature of the injury has not been disclosed and Strikeforce has yet to confirm the change, but an announcement is expected shortly. This is the second time the promotion has tried -- and failed -- to put this fight together.

Third time's a charm?

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.
