Jimi Manuwa vs. Cyrille Diabate. Two great strikers but there could be only one winner. Here's how it went down.
Manuwa took Diabate down after eating a few mild knees in the clinch. After taking some mild ground and pound, Diabate came to his feet and ate a hard knee for his efforts. After some scrambling that Manuwa won out on, Diabate was put on his back once again (though Manuwa let him up this time). But the bottom line on the rest of the stanza was that Manuwa hit faster, harder, and landed another takedown. Then the bell tolled.
And in-between rounds Diabate was unable to fight anymore, as he apparently sustained an injury to his leg during round one.
Jimi Manuwa defeats Cyrille Diabate by TKO after round one.
