    Latifi is strong and explosive, but he is chinny and runs out of gas. At HW his chin and cardio would be even more of a factor, except now his size and strength is no longer an advantage. So what's the reasoning here? If he had to change divisions maybe moving down would have been the smarter option.

    Black Beast is getting a favorable opponent in his hometown, yet a respectable one.

    A chance for a journeyman to make a splash I reckon.

    He was with one foot out of the door at LHW. And with the weight cut he was draining himself and having 1 round cardio.


    And let's be honest.. HW is swallow as fuck. Most guys there are terrible. Derrick Lewis included.

    I think he does other combat and strongman sports. Being heavier might help in those.

    I never like predicting fights where a fighter has changed weight class because you really never know how they're going to look

    That being said he was undersized at LHW and Lewis is a big guy

    Makes sense for Lewis and UFC promoting BB. But how is Latifi benefitting? Money can't be that bad to take another L

    Yeah not cutting weight will hurt his cardio and the black beast is unbeatable
