Cyrille Diabate vs. Chad Griggs Added to UFC 154
By FCF Staff
The November 17th, UFC 154 card in Montreal, Quebec is nearing completion, as the promotion has announced that light-heavyweight Cyrille Diabate will battle Chad Griggs at the event. The fight is the eleventh fight that’s expected to take place at the city’s Bell Centre that night.
Diabate (18-8) is coming off a majority decision win over Tom DeBlass at a UFC on FUEL TV event in April, after being submitted by Anthony Perosh at UFC 138 last November.
Griggs (11-2) makes the move to light-heavyweight after he was tapped out by Travis Browne while making his UFC debut in April. Prior to the defeat the former heavyweight had won six straight, which included three wins under the Strikeforce banner.
UFC 154 will be headlined by a welterweight bout between champion Georges St. Pierre and interim champ Carlos Condit.
The upcoming event will also feature a fight between welterweight contenders Johny Hendricks and Martin Kampmann.
