PRIDE, Cage Rage and ShoXC veteran Cyrille "The Snake" Diabate (15-6-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has signed a four-fight deal with the UFC and is expected to meet Luiz Cane (10-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) at UFC 114 in May.

Diabate has got some dangerous strikes, not a whole lot of power on them though, this should look similar to Cane vs Sokoudjou. And Cane's boxing is much better than Diabate's well. The underdog status of Diabate is just in my opinion.

I guess they want international fighters.

Should look into a Golden Glory gym to find actual talent.
