French kickboxer Cyrille Diabate's quest for a third straight UFC win hit a roadblock this past weekend when an injury forced an early halt to his fight with Jimi Manuwa.

Diabate couldn't continue past the first round of their UFC on FUEL TV 7 main-card bout at London's Wembley Arena due to an apparent leg injury.

Diabate eventually took to Twitter to explain that he had a strained calf muscle due in part to an existing Achilles tendon injury.

"I want to apologize to all the @ufc fans and my opponent," he wrote on Sunday. "I tore my calf in the 1st rnd and couldnt stand on my back (R) leg. I'll be back!

"After MRi i have strained calf muscle due to compensating for an achilles tendon injury on my left leg. Sorry to @UFC fans and my opponent."

The 39-year-old didn't give a timetable for a return.

Very disappointing end to what was looking like a promising fight
