Ilir Latifi Cut 26 Pounds To Meet Gegard Mousasi

According to a report by, Ilir Latifi cut 26 pounds to make the light heavyweight limit for Saturday’s main event fight with Gegard Mousasi at UFC on FUEL TV: Mousasi vs. Latifi.

Latifi, of course, was tabbed as the replacement for Alexander Gustafsson after his training partner was knocked out due to a cut.

“Ilir weighed 105 kg on Wednesday, and earlier today he weighed in at 93.4 kg,” the report stated. “In three days he was stripped away approximately 12 kg.”

A kilogram is equal to just over 2.2 pounds, so it could be interesting to see how much energy Latifi has or even how much bigger he is come fight night.

We will have complete coverage of the entire event Saturday morning right here on FightLine. The Facebook prelims are set to start at 10:50 a.m. ET.
