Mike Kyle’s indefinate suspension was apparently lifted earlier this month, and he is already signed to fight in the Central Valley Cagefighting event on October 2 in Fresno, CA.
For those of you unaware, Kyle was suspended indefinately in October 2006 for illegally kicking Brian Olsen in the face, and then continuing to assault (and make no mistake, it was an assault) his unconcious opponent after a fight. The victim, Olsen, suffered multiple fractures to his face and has continued to suffer long-term from the beating, which included a postfight head stomp and multiple strikes.
It took Herb Dean running into the ring to assist the original referee in removing Kyle from Olsen. In previous fights Kyle has bitten opponents and attempted eye gouges, and multiple times has deliberately ignored referee instruction.
If you feel that Kyle should not be permitted to return to MMA competition at this time, feel free to contact Armando Garcia, head of the California State Athletic Commission.
