    Have not heard any news regarding him since he had a tko loss to Jimi Manuwa via foot injury. Anyone hear of anything?

    He actually injured his calf to my knowledge, which is a really shitting injury for a striker.

    Haven't heard anything about him

    I think his calf injury during the Manuwa fight was bad enough to keep him out for a while.

    Never heard anything about him retiring. Think the calf injury he suffered was pretty severe though. I'd love to see him fight again.

    In one of those Dana VLogs they showed him talking to Manuwa after the fight. Manuwa asked him what his plans were, and Diabate said "I think I'm going to retire"

    He's had a fucking awesome career, I wish him the best
