Tiger Muay Thai & MMA Phuket alumni Cyrille Diabate’s Swedish UFC victory
Congratulations to Tiger Muay Thai & MMA Phuket alumni Cyrille Diabate on his scorecard victory over Tom DeBlass at UFC on Fuel TV 2.
Cyrille ‘The Snake’ showed signs of defeated early on in the first round but made an emphatic comeback in the next 2 to win the fight via majority decision in front of a packed Stockholm crowd.
Known for his stand-up work, Light Heavyweight Diabate adjusted his gameplan on the spot after a tiring first round and shifted to grappling. A move that paid off well for the seasoned 38 year old French striker.
Cyrille Diabate debuted at Tiger in early 2011 ahead of his UFC Live victory over Steve Cantwell. Last weekend’s win brings his UFC tally to 3–2.
Outside the octagon, ‘The Snake’ is known globally for his role as Dan Henderson’s coach during Season 9 of Ultimate Fighter.
Tiger Muay Thai & MMA Phuket would like to congratulate Cyrille on his victory.
