Cyrille Diabate Suffers Calf Injury At UFC On FUEL TV

Cyrille Diabate entered UFC on FUEL TV this past weekend looking to climb the light heavyweight roster. He instead left the Octagon defeated and injured. He recently took to Twitter to give details about the calf injury.

At the conclusion of the first round, Diabate told his corner he couldn’t stand and the doctor was called in. After a brief conversation with Diabate, the fight was called and Jimi Manuwa was declared the winner.

Diabate is now 4-3 for the UFC as his two fight win streak came to a quick end. Manuwa is undefeated with 13 wins as his last two came under the UFC name, both by a doctor stoppage.

No timeframe for Diabate’s return was provided.
