The UFC on FUEL TV 2 fight card and line-up has undergone a last-minute change as Jorgen Kruth has been forced to bow out of his upcoming fight against Cyrille Diabate on April 14, 2012 at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.
Stepping in for him is undefeated Tom DeBlass (7-0), the current Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight Champion of Lou Neglia's Ring of Combat (ROC) promotion in Atlantic City, NJ. DeBlass is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) Black Belt under former UFC Welterweight standout Ricardo Almeida.
"A lot of emails and texts asking why I'm fighting on 12 days notice. Cyrilles opponent pulled out so UFC contacted my manager asking if I'd be willing to step up. Yes it's short notice but I'm a fighter and fighters fight. I don't care. I believe in my team and myself and I'm coming to fight hard. Thanks again for the love."
After the jump, a highlight video of DeBlass, made by one of the students at the Ocean County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (OCBJJ) school in Forked River, NJ.
