Swedish kickboxer Jörgen ‘The Last Viking’ Kruth (5-0) was to have tested his striking against French fighter Cyrille ‘The Snake’ Diabaté (18-8-1) last month at the UFC on FUEL TV 2 event in Stockholm, but Kruth was forced off the card due to a rib injury and was replaced by Tom DeBlass.
Kruth has a new date for his Octagon debut, September 29, 2012 at a yet-to-be-announced UFC event, and it will be against Diabaté in a light heavyweight matchupl.

‘The Last Viking’ broke the news to Swedish news agency Expressen.SE on Sunday.

I think it's just a matter of time until Diabate is cut. Anyone with any form of takedown ability and more than 5 minutes of gas will beat him. Will be nice to see him face another kickboxer before he goes though.
