01 Jan Ilir Latifi vs. Tanner Boser in the works for UFC event on June 5
A new heavyweight fight between Ilir Latifi and Tanner Boser is currently in the works for the upcoming UFC event on June 5.
Multiple sources confirmed the matchup to MMA Fighting on Friday following an initial report from MMA Empire.
Latifi will be making his second appearance in the heavyweight division in the UFC after coming up short in his debut with a decision loss to Derrick Lewis this past February. Overall, Latifi has dropped three fights in a row but he’ll look to get back in track when he makes his return in June.
As for Boser, he’s also coming off a loss in his most recent outing when he dropped a decision to former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski. That loss came after back-to-back wins for the Canadian after he earned knockout finishes against both Philipe Lins and Raphael Pessoa.
As of now, there’s been no main event announced or confirmed for the upcoming card on June 5.
