Looks like Elite XC has signed the 12-6 Muay Thai fighter Cyrille Diabaté. The information comes from his blog. The contracts is for 1 year/3 fights.

He is a good stand up guy. His last loss was a couple years ago to Shogun. He is a streaky fighter but i'm looking forward to watching this 6'6" 205lber fight in the cage.

yeah, he's definitely a better fighter than his record would suggest. Elite's LHW division seems to be lacking the most compared to their other divisions... it's a good signing for them. .

I never got to see the fight. In the end Shogun won but I wouldn't be surprised if he did win the stand up battle. Diabate's stand up is great.

Shogun was losing at first, but then pulled summin outta his ass to win.

just to refresh everyone's mind here, he is the guy that shogun stomped like 15 times, where shogun was basically jumping on the guys face
