EliteXC's Diabate meets UFC vet Sincade in Jan. 22 PFC main event

Originally posted on MMAjunkie.com

Famed French striker and recent EliteXC fighter Cyrille "Snake" Diabate (12-6-1) will meet "The Ultimate Fighter" and UFC alumnus Lodune Sincaid (14-6) in the main event of Palace Fighting Championship's Jan. 22 event.

Nathan Brodnax of MMAAgents.com, which represents Diabate, told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that bout agreements will soon be distributed and signed for the headline fight.

Diabate, a one-time PRIDE fighter who was offered an EliteXC light-heavyweight title fight before the organization canceled its Nov. 8 event, will compete for just the second time in 21 months.


Also scheduled for the card, according to Brodnax, is a bout between Xavier Foupa-Pokam (19-9), who's won 11 of his past 12 fights, and BodogFIGHT and King of the Cage veteran Kyacey Uscola (15-12).

Foupa-Pokam is one of Diabate's training partners.

The Jan. 22 PFC event takes place at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, Calif.
