I don't see why most people have Manuwa as favourite. I was at his first UFC fight and watched it again later. For as good as he looked in the 1st round, he looked utterly horrific in the 2nd. Absolutely gassed after 4minutes. If that fight didn't get stopped by the doctor I'd put my money on Kingsbury coming back and winning that.

This fight I see Diabate winning via however he wants. So much range, better technique and grappling. Long limbs to wrap up a sub. I'd love to see Jimi pull off a huge KO, but that's his only chance, an early finish.

It would not surprise me to see Diabate decision Manuwa, Diabate is no pushover and has been around a while. If he can take Manuwa's power early on then he can work to control the latter part of the fight.

Good tactic by Manuwa to get the take down, every knee Diabete throws. Looks like he's been training that one hard.
