Being a team mate and sparring partner of Alexander Gustafsson and training at various top gyms including Allstars in Sweden and American Top Team in Florida has improved Latifi’s overall MMA game throughout the years.
Being light heavyweight at 5 ft 10 in (1.78 m) he was built like a tank in that division, now moving up a weight class will be interesting as the weight cut will no longer be an concern.
However, Lewis with 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m) and reach advantage and almost 30 lb heavier may be to much for Latifi.
