Diarra was banned for eight weeks after found guilty of stamping on the head of Moray Low during last week's 10-8 home win over Glasgow.
The 29-year-old was found to be in contravention of Law 10.4(b) at a hearing in Dublin on Wednesday after clashing with Low during the second half of their fixture at Stade Pierre Antoine.
The offence was deemed to be at the high-end entry point suspension of nine weeks but due to a clean disciplinary record, Diarra had seven days deducted.
The Frenchman, who was the right to appeal, will be sidelined until 11 February, ruling him out of the back-to-back Heineken Cup fixtures against Northampton and Ulster in January.
