    I think it's save to say the guy was a little underrated entering the UFC

    Good stuff. Those leg kicks were brutal, and that power guillotine he put on Diabate awhile back was sick. Everything he does is loaded with power.

    I'm a fan of Latifi.

    It's insane to remember Mousasi completely dominated him despite fighting on a torn ACL, and still caught shit from much of the sherdog community over the performance.

    I want him to be a contender. Sadly, I don't think he'll make it against gatekeepers like Bader or Feijao.

    Ilir had to loose over 25 pounds with a 3 day notice for the fight against Mousasi, he also hadn't sparred for 3 months.
