Mike Kyle (18-7-1 MMA, 2-2-1 SF) has stepped in as an injury replacement for Valentijn Overeem (28-25 MMA, 0-0 SF) and now meets heavyweight Antonio Silva (14-2 MMA, 1-1 SF) at Saturday's "Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu" event.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed the switch with multiple sources close to the show, including a Strikeforce official.

The fight is part of the Showtime-televised main card of the show, which takes place at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.

Overeem was forced off the card this past week with an elbow injury

good for kyle for taking this fight, especially since hes been on the LHW radar in SF lately. i dont really love his chances in this fight, but its hard not to root for a guy thats moving up and taking a fight on short notice.

I personally think Kyle should be rematch Fejiao for the title and a loss here could derail him from that.

Glad kyle stepped up and saved a bout
I for sure read that I thought he was going to fight mousasi when gegard was gonna fight for strikeforce
They probably will pay kyle is show and win bonus for stepping up

I think that this fight is much better than Silva vs. Overeem
