Renowned Swedish kickboxer Jurgen Kruth has been signed for a September 29 fight with Cyrille Diabate, according to reports from his native land.
Swedish daily newspaper Expressen.se reported today that the fight is signed and sealed. They had been due to fight at the recent UFC Sweden event, the first UFC show to take place in Scandinavia, but Kruth was forced off the card with a rib injury and Diabate met jiu jitsu stylist Tom DeBlass instead.
“I think it will be a fun match. We have the same background,” Kruth told Expressen.se
“We were supposed to have been met, but unfortunately I had to drop out. [The replacement match] was boring and he was also disappointed, because he got to meet someone he had not prepared for.”
