Lately there’s been plenty of talk as to whether Daniel Cormier will defend the light-heavyweight title one more time, and who he might face, and Ilir Latifi’s making sure he’s not forgotten.

Cormier added the heavyweight crown to his resume last weekend, by knocking out Stipe Miocic in the opening round at UFC 226. Cormier is expected to face Brock Lesnar next, but “DC” has also talked about defending the 205 title one more time, before he retires next spring.

Well, recently Latifi posted the following comments on Instagram:

Mister Pound for Pound! Lets give the fans the best possible show at LHW!
Shogun is a legend, and a great fighter, but I’m the only one at the top of LHW that has 5 wins out of my last 6 with 3 KO’s and 1 submission in the first round!
I’m one of the most active fighters in the division! Let us both heal and set it up!

You said it yourself: “Ilir Latifi is the strongest guy I’ve ever trained with.” And with my 100% takedown defense, we all know this will be a slug fest! You never know, I might just take you down once for the fun of it.

Let’s rumble in NYC! LET’S MAKE IT HAPPEN!


Latifi is coming off a quick, submission win over Ovince Saint Preux and is ranked #4 in the UFC’s light-heavyweight division.
