LHW’s Glover Teixeira and Ilir Latifi will clash in Hamburg

Today, the UFC announced another fight for the UFC Hamburg card on July 22. Top ranked light heavyweights, Ilir Latifi and Glover Teixeira, will clash in Germany.

A potential title shot eliminator may be at stake, as Teixeira is ranked #3 and Latifi is ranked #4. These are two of the top guys in the division and Latifi will continue his rise or Glover makes a strong case for the next crack at gold.

Teixeira (27-6) has beaten a ‘who’s who’ of fighters during his UFC tenure. OSP, Ryan Bader, Rampage, and most recently, Misha Cirkunov, have all fallen at the hands of Glover. Latifi (14-5-1) is 5-1 over his last six fights and his most recent win over OSP earned him a performance bonus.

These are two big light heavyweight that will be throwing down on a card that will be headlined by another light heavyweight bout; Shogun Rua vs Volkan Oezdemir.
