Light-heavyweight prospect Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante (7-1) is once again without an opponent for his June 6 Strikeforce debut, as opponent Jared Hamman (10-1) has been forced out of the bout with an unspecified injury suffered in training.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed the change with Strikeforce Director of Communications Mike Afromowitz.

Additional sources close to the event have revealed Mike Kyle (11-6-1) is the leading candidate to fill in for Hamman on the preliminary card of the "Strikeforce: Lawler vs. Shields" event.

Mike Kyle should never have been allowed to fight again after what he did to Brian Olsen.

Plus he is creepy looking.

Jeez,I never knew Kyle could make 205-that's a big dude.Didn't he weight about 250 when he was in the UFC?

Hopefully there will be some short fights on the broadcast and we will be able to see Feijao beat the living hell out of Kyle.Kyle is one of the very,very few fighters I have an extreme dislike for,mostly due to the fact that he's one of the very few "dirty" fighters out there.

I've always wondered what would happen if Kyle fought Gary Goodridge.....someone would most likely leave that fight minus an eye or a testicle.

WB.
