Tom DeBlass steps in to face Cyrille Diabate at UFC on Fuel 2

Ring of Combat champion and undefeated UFC newcomer Tom DeBlass will make his debut inside the Octagon later this month. DeBlass (7-0) recently revealed himself as a replacement for the injured Jorgen Kruth at UFC on Fuel 2, taking on Cyrille Diabate.

The card, scheduled for April 14 from Stockholm, Sweden, will see the main card televised by Fuel TV and the prelims likely streaming on Facebook where the bout will take place.

DeBlass turned pro in 2010 and has defeated the likes of former UFC fighter Sean Salmon and Mike Stewart. He has four stoppage victories in seven wins. Meanwhile, Diabate (17-8-1) has split his four UFC bouts. After going 10-1 in an eleven-fight period he has since found himself stuck in a 1-2 mark.

UFC on Fuel 2 is headlined by Alexander Gustafsson taking on Thiago Silva and is highlighted by other bouts like Paulo Thiago-Siyar Bahadurzada and Brian Stann-Alessio Sakara.
