The 25-year-old Mousasi said that he was originally scheduled to fight Kyle on the March 5 card in Columbus, Ohio, but Kyle needs more time to heal from the injuries he sustained in his December loss to Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva.
ESPN.com reported on Thursday that Strikeforce is targeting April 9 as a possible date. A location has yet to be finalized.
Mousasi (30-3-1) hasn't fought for Strikeforce since he lost the 205-pound title to Muhammed Lawal in April. That loss snapped his 15-fight winning streak, which spanned four years. Since the loss to "King Mo," Mousasi has won the DREAM light heavyweight title after beating Jake O'Brien and Tatsuya Mizuno in a four-man tournament. He also defeated Kyotaro in a K-1 match at Dynamite!! 2010.
Kyle (18-8-1, 1 no contest) is 5-1 with 1 no contest in his last seven fights. He was very active in 2010, fighting six times in total. He holds wins in Strikeforce over current champion Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante and Abongo Humphrey.
