Round 1 - Referee Marc-Andre Cote refs this light heavyweight, which serves as Griggs 205 debut. Griggs staking in off the bat and meets a knee. Then he leaps in with a kick and gets countered with a shot that takes him off his feet. Diabate gets on top and stuffs Griggs as he tries to get up. But Griggs keeps powering and gets up. Diabate grabs his waist and yanks him back down. Crowd has awoken. Diabate working in half-guard as Griggs uses cage to push up. He gets to his knees and keeps his hands on the mat for a short bit, but takes a knee when his hands come off. Diabate lands a few illegal shots prompting a complaint from Griggs, who powers Diabate to the mat in a subsequent drive. They recover to their feet, where Griggs drives for a takedown. Problem is, he's not facing Diabate fully, and falls, literally, right into back control. Diabate has to do little but secure hooks and the arm-triangle, which he does for a tappout at the 2:24 mark of the first frame. Cyrille Diabate def. Chad Griggs via submission (rear-naked choke) - Round 1, 2:24
