    Actually forgot this shitfest was going down this weekend.
    Should be relatively quick work for Black Beast if he goes out with intent to finish and not to stare. Ilir has no business fighting a monster in Lewis after being KO'd by Oezdemir.

    Lewis round 1 KO.. And it will do absolutely nothing for him but I doubt he cares.

    Despite the myths about him being a KO artist, Lewis is not a guy who knocks people out in round 1.

    Latifi is pretty done. Black Beast hits considerably harder than Oezdemir I'd say

    Volkan did that man dirty, not sure Latifi isn’t gonna panic when BB starts swangin.

    BB via brutal KO would help make this card easier to watch so I’m hoping for that.

    Don't forget Lewis can't wrestle for shit and he is a burst type of fighter - he bench presses people off himself on the ground, but stays 3 minutes flat on his back prior to that, he explodes on the feet the last 60 second of every round, but he does jack shit for the other 4 minutes, again just to save his evergy.

    In the past I've always said that if Lewis can't KO his opponent, he is losing for sure, but judges like his bursts of violence and give him rounds where he got outwrestled and outworked completely, but he did swang a couple of times in the end of the round and looked impressive enough to steal it.

    So I will say there are 2 possible outcomes - Ilir loses a split decision robbery, or Ilir loses by knockout. You have to go back to Bellator and Cajun fighting to see a Derrick Lewis losing by decision. He just doesn't lose by decision in UFC. He finds a way to win.

    BB will get it done in the second after being behind for the bulk of the fight. Similar to the Volkov BB fight but not as one sided.

    Latifi isn't better than Ivanov, who made it through three rounds due to what's possibly the most granite chin in the UFC.

    Lewis is putting Latifi up against the cage in round 2. Once there, five seconds of BB rampage will be all that's needed for the ref to jump in.

    Weird fight. Either Latifi is too quick and outmaneuvers him. Or Lewis touches and starches him.
    I have no clue what ilir is even doing at HW but maybe it will Work Out.

    I honestly thought the thread title was a G up or hypothetical match up thread. You're spot on, what a weird fight for the both guys.

    Thinking about parlaying BB with Shevchenko and Bones Jones. That will it should be even money or a little better. All 3 should dominate their fight. Jones is the only one that has a possibility of getting upset.

    With this fight and the Ngannou one, Lewis is chasing Kongo’s record for having the biggest number of completely forgettable fights at HW.
