Luiz Cane vs. Cyrille Diabate set for UFC 114

The heavy handed Luiz Cane will be looking to rebound from a recent defeat suffered at the hands of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira when he faces off with UFC newcomer, Cyrille Diabate at UFC 114.

The news of the match-up was first reported by MMAFighting.com, citing Diabate’s agent as the source.

UFC 114 is slated for May 29 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Cane will be entering the match-up with an overall UFC record of 3-2, while the thirty-six year old Diabate will be entering the Octagon on a five fight win streak, with the French kickboxer’s last defeat coming at the hands of Mauricio “Shogun” Rua during “PRIDE: Final Conflict Absolute” in September of 2006.

    If Cane isn’t careful, he could get KO’d again. This guy has serious power and good technical striking which is what took him out in his last bout.

    havent really kept up to date with the snake in recently, he used to be a much better kick boxer than he was mma fighter. i see his last couple wins are by submission so i guess he finally learnt to fight on the ground as he was always very weak there. personally i think there is too high a caliber of competition in the UFC for him, but who knows.

    This is a pretty tough first fight in the ufc, but if his kickboxing is really good Cain might be the best firs match up as he is pretty much all stand up.
