Corey Anderson vs Ilir Latifi In what should be a great, back-n-forth light heavyweight fight I think Corey Anderson has all the edges to win this fight. With the exception of size Anderson should be able to outwork Latifi with pressure and wrestling to secure the decision win. I won’t rule out Latifi to possibly…
