Diabate is a freaking danger and was a terrific addition to the LHW division. He's an insightful striker with some really articulate footwork that wasn't really showcased vs. Cane since it kinda devolved fast, however at his size and with his striking pedigree, he could really do some damage given his experience and training. Then again, I have been saying the same thing about Brandon Vera for freaking EVA, so whaddo I know!!
Also, keep an eye out for Nedkov, he's debuting at 205 too and is kind of a very well kept secret acquisition who may really start gaining some momentum in the coming year.....
