Cyrille Diabate vs. Jurgen Kruth Set For Sept. 29th yet to be Announced UFC Event

French striker, Cyrille Diabate will meet Swedish kickboxer, Jurgen Kruth at a yet to be announced UFC event on September 29th, 2012. The two were supposed to meet at UFC on FUEL 2 in Stockholm, Sweden last month but Kruth pulled out with a rib injury and was replaced by Tom DeBlass. Diabate battled his way to a unanimous decision against the promotional newcomer.

Kruth, speaking via Swedish daily newspaper Expressen.se, said:

“I think it will be a fun match. We have the same background. We were supposed to have been met, but unfortunately I had to drop out. [The replacement match] was boring and he was also disappointed, because he got to meet someone he had not prepared for.”

Kruth has a perfect 5-0 record, he also has a 71-14 career in the kickboxing and is considered to be the best kickboxer to ever come out of the Scandinavian country.
