A light-heavyweight bout between Cyrille Diabate (19-8-1 MMA, 4-2 UFC) and Jimi Manuwa (12-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) is the latest addition to the quickly filling UFC on FUEL TV 7 card.

UFC officials today announced the fight.

UFC on FUEL TV 7 takes place Feb. 16 at Wembley Arena in London. The event's main card, including a title fight between interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao and challenger Michael McDonald, airs on FUEL TV following Facebook prelims.

It's not clear where Diabate vs. Manuwa will end up on the lineup.

I don't see this ending well for Diabate, I also said that for his fight with Mutton Chops Griggs, but I have way more confidence in Manuwa.

I'm sure Rabi will be pleased with this announcement!!

Hopefully Jimi doesn't charge face first into snake diabete's fist in the opening seconds. That KO has got to be one of the funniest in UFC history.

This will be fun. Good match making. No need to rush Manuwa.

it wasn't a KO. In fact, getting choked out by Diabate is one of the funniest things in UFC history

Good match making, Diabate doesn't usually get beat standing by anybody, Manuwa will either blow up or get exposed in this fight because this is his style of fight, this better be main card.
