Former UFC light-heavyweight Keith Jardine has signed with Strikeforce, and will look to extend his two-fight winning streak next Saturday in San Diego when he faces former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi at Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley.
Jardine will be replacing the injured Mike Kyle, who was forced to withdraw from the bout due to a broken hand suffered in training.
Jardine is coming off of consecutive wins over Aron Lofton and Francisco France after losing five consecutive fights. It will be the first time that “The Dean of Mean” has fought for Strikeforce.
Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley takes place next Saturday, April 9, from the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California.
