MMAWeekly.com has confirmed that Fabricio Werdum will remain on the Strikeforce “Carano vs. Cyborg” fight card, as he will be taking on Mike Kyle.
“We’ve agreed to fight Mike (Kyle). As I sit hear speaking to you, that’s the fight,” Werdum’s manager, Richard Wilner, told MMAWeekly.com early Monday afternoon. Wilner said he even confirmed with Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker that the fight was on after seeing several online reports to the contrary.
“The only question that remains is whether or not it will be on the televised or untelevised portion of card. I don’t know if maybe they make it a swing bout,” said Wilner. “I’m leaning towards the untelevised portion.”
The card will be taking place this Saturday inside the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA.
