    I thought he won the fight. That was a bad fight for him beforehand imo but he controlled majority of the fight. Not pleasing on the eyes though. Lewis won it with that flurry at the end I guess

    Also chin looks good at HW

    Yeah. If you are even close to consider Jones winning, Latifi definitely also won.

    Latifi won the fight last night and I lost money betting on him. Death to judges

    They’ll probably give him another fight. He’s a comedy fighter and they’re needed sometimes.

    I think Latifi won the fight, but he was so boring in doing it that the judges may have dozed off and missed much of the fight! I admit I am not a fan of any wrestlers, and find their style boring, but Latifi controlled most of the fight and had 3-4 takedowns, so he may of squeeked it out. He has a mighty good chin though, I'll give him that!

    There’s a difference between a wrestler (Khabib, Chael) and someone who’s desperately looking for the win. Guy literally just hugged Lewis the whole fight. People call Usman and Colby’s style boring, wtf do you call that then?

    He was 250 with a six pack in his training camp pic

    Yes he’s like 5’9” but I think he needs to stay at Hw

    He definitely won the 2nd round, but I think he lost the 1st and 3rd.

    This is also something important to consider as well

    IMO he really showed no desire to finish that fight or to make any serious attempts to damage his opponent, he didnt deserve to win that

    That fight was awful.
    Let me score a takedown and then do nothing with it.

    It looked like Latifi was saying goodbye to Lewis at the airport.

    He won but he could have been more aggresive

    Agreed, Latifi was pushing Lewis around for nearly the entire fight, with the exception of the leg kicks and the flurry at the end. He wasn't doing anything with that control of the fight though, once they would get to the ground he would just take a breather. Not sure how the judges decided that fight, but anyone fighting that passively shouldn't be on pay per view.
