Newbs like to give Babalu Sobral a hard time over his choke of David Heath, but that’s nothing compared to what Mike Kyle did to Bryan Olsen back in May 2006. The CSAC wasn’t able to collect a nice bonus from Kyle like they were for Babalu, so they ‘indefinately suspended’ Kyle from competing in MMA. And by ‘indefinate’ I mean 16 months. Kyle is back in action October 2nd at a Central Valley Cagefighting show in Fresno.
There’s lots of rumbling and grumbling that Kyle will be given a taste of his own medicine soon enough. Isn’t it great to see MMA has grown to the point where we’re willing to deal with our own problems rather than rely on athletic commissions to do that kind of stuff? Thank you CSAC for re-licensing a guy who should never be allowed to fight in mixed martial arts ever again. I hope his $180 application fee sits in your pockets comfortably after the next incident like this.
