Jordan Breen Show: Cyrille "The Snake" Diabate

Jordan Breen returned to the Sherdog Radio Network Thursday with a preview of the weekend of MMA ahead, and was joined by Hawaiian light heavyweight prospect Poai Suganuma (Pictures) and French striking specialist Cyrille Diabate (Pictures).

Suganuma joins Breen to talk about his forthcoming rematch with Jared Hamman (Pictures) on this Friday's ShoXC card, live on Showtime. Suganuma talks about his beginnings in the sport, training and fighting in Japan, and refining his game in Hawaii. The 205-pound Hilo blue-chip also talks diet, ukelele playing and the experience of being a wedding singer in Japan.

"The Snake" discusses his bout, also on Friday's ShoXC card, with Jaime Fletcher (Pictures). Diabate talks about his time in the gym over the last two years, refining his skill set, and shopping for a big-fight deal. Diabate, one of the sport's trailblazers in Europe, also discusses the process of legalizing the sport in his native France, and the potential for France in producing MMA talent in the future.

Breen also discusses Greco-Roman wrestling regulatory woes, and breaks down fights from this weekend's ShoXC, Deep, KOTC and Purecombat cards.
