I think not many people are appreciating him taking the fight on not even a week notice. (not many would take the fight...)
Cutting 26 pound in a week !!!

That's insane !!

I hope he doesnt get embarassed by mousassi...as mousassi and his experience etc. has a biiiig difference

He hasnt had a camp

I hope he gets a lower ranked fighter which he can show his true potential....

discuss.

    if he beats mousasi it will be 1 of the biggest upsets in ufc history. arguably the biggest considering latifi is fighting on short notice as well as being a nobody with a less than stellar record and mous having only lost a handful of times and having been the sf and dream champ as well as being in his prime right now.

    certainly more of an upset than gsp serra, serra wasnt a nobody and had some decent wins he was also the contender.

    Ilir is a beast !! he´s been training with big foot, uberreem and the rest overthere.
    when Gus was out Ilir got in the car and in the morning next day at 4am he was in place.
    you gotta respect that. but then again he´s from Malmo ;)

    In case you ever wondered what it's like to be knockedout it's like waking up from a nightmare only to discover it wasn't a dream

    There's obv a reason he's got the chance to fight Mousassi and i wouldn't count him out

    He has no chance, and i think its pretty irresponsable taking a fight with such short notice.
    thanks god im less stupid now!

    I bet there were quite a few Swedish-circuit bums willing to step up and take the fight. Taking the fight on short notice probably guarantees he fights at least 1 more time in the UFC

    now you say its "irresponsable" BUT if he wouldnt have taken it and the news would be latifi didnt take it you would say he's a **** and is ducking or so or he's not man enough to fight or you would take the chance to fight in the ufc....

    Much respect for him even taking the fight. Like Florian has said, Gegard has struggled with strong wrestlers and Latifi is that. He could very well give Gegard problems. We'll see what happens

    The guy deserves another chance to fight with a proper fight camp just like the mighty hippo did

    WAR Latifi

    He stepped up, so he deserves another chance after today even if he was to lose.

    The big question is, what happens to Mousasi if Latifi knocks him out in the first round?
    Norwegian guy here, so excuse my English

    mous will most likely have a 3-5 fight contract already.

    Why would he need any notice,it is the same for his opponent?These guys are suppose to be in shape and ready to fight at all times.
    He fought dumb,even with out any game plan,he knows what he is a top class wrestler,but chose to not wrestle and that is becuase he is a crap fighter,nothing but a roiding giant.
    he had ZERO excuse he was massive,big time size advantage over Gegard,he looked to be easily 225-240,while Gegard looked no bigger than Damian Maia who hangs out at 170.He even had the PERFECT style to beat a guy like Gegard,tons of power with wrestling.

    They said he trains with Gusty all the time,so he has been training with a TOP level fighter,he SHOULD have been ready.
