Elite XC signs Cyrille "The Snake" Diabaté

Looks like Elite XC has signed the 12-6 Muay Thai fighter Cyrille Diabaté. The information comes from his blog. The contracts is for 1 year/3 fights.

He is a good stand up guy. His last loss was a couple years ago to Shogun. He is a streaky fighter but i'm looking forward to watching this 6'6" 205lber fight in the cage.

Diabate has some very good stand up so I'm exicted to see him try and fight MMA again.

I hope we see Babalu vs Diabate 2.

I'm excited too man. Watching his Diabate's stand up is a blast.
I hope he does well. I hope he takes this jump seriously and trains accordingly. He is known to be a streaky fighter but the potential is there.

Good signing, as the Snake's a solid stand-up fighter who always brings it. I would really dig a Manhoef vs Snake fight.

I thought he was doing good in the Shogun fight, well until he got stomped in the head.
