I wouldnt be so quick to assume, Manuwa will be playing Diabates game. Top striker with good cardio and chin...this wont be easy.

This will be a striking affair and may be competitive while it lasts, but Jimi will prove too powerful.

Manuwa will ruin Cyrille standing. It'll be quite even I think until Jimi lands a heavy shot. He has far too much power, and with his technique as well....It's ending quickly and brutally.

Diabate is a really good striker guys... better than Manuwa probably. I think Manuwa will eventually find Diabate's chin and get the TKO, but I won't bat an eye if Diabate wins by decision or TKO either.

I was about to say Cyrile til I read everybodys' post about Manu Manu. Get it Manu...Manu. I'll have to say this fight will end in a TKO. Who I don't know yet.

Looking forward to this one. Manuwa has looked like a killer and It'll be interesting to see if he can prove to be one of the better light heavyweights in the world. He is without a doubt one of the more exciting prospects in the light heavyweight division. Diabete is no push over though especially going against a guy who will want to stand and bang. My prediction is Manuwa catches him early and finishes the fight.
