Cyrille Diabate vs. Ilir Latifi Added to the UFC’s Return to London in March

UFCv3-Diabate-v-Cantwell-3UFC officials on Thursday added a bout between Cyrille Diabate and Ilir Latifi to the UFC Fight Night 37 fight card slated for March 8 at the O2 Arena in London.

Diabate (19-9), who holds kickboxing victories over Rick Roufus and Michael Bisping, is a French fighter with a 4-3 record in the Octagon.

He enters the bout with Latifi coming off of a loss to undefeated British fighter Jimi Manuwa at UFC on Fuel TV 7 earlier this year.

A training partner of Alexander Gustafsson, Latifi (7-3) made his promotional debut as a last minute replacement for his training partner against Gegard Mousasi at UFC on Fuel TV 9 in April. He lost to the former Dream and Strikeforce champion, but went the distance, earning further trips to the Octagon.
