PostSubject: UFC Vet Mike Kyle Serves Suspension, Back in Action   Mon 01 Oct 2007, 2:27 pm


Posted by: http://mmajunkie.com/

Former UFC fighter Mike Kyle (9-5-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) has served an 18-month suspension after a brutal May 2006 attack on an opponent and will return to action on Tuesday at a Central Valley Cagefighting show in Fresno, Calif.

Kyle, who fought three times in the UFC from 2004-‘05, eventually left the organization to fight for a handful of other promotions. Last year at WEC 20 in Lemoore, Calif., Kyle struck opponent Brian Olsen with an illegal kick to the face, and though the referee stepped in, he continued the attack before officials could pull him off.

Olsen suffered facial injuries from the attack, and despite the fight taking place at an un-regulated event on the grounds of an Indian casino, the California State Athletic Commission suspended Kyle 18 months anyway.

That suspension has now ended.

This coming Tuesday, Kyle takes on Strikeforce veteran Mike Cook in the main event of CVC’s inaguaral show. The upstart organization is billing Kyle as “former UFC Bad Boy.” (Oddly, UFC.com still has Kyle listed on its roster of fighters.)

Just a month after his suspension, Kyle was slated to fight at a June 2006 event in Idaho. However, after a public outcry, the Idaho Athletic Commission nixed the bout and apparently pulled the fighter’s license. Since then, he’s kept a rather low profile.

Is it just me or does this guy not belong in competitive sports! I am all about a second chance but what he did was egregious!
