Gegard Mousasi will finally make his highly-anticipated UFC debut following the closure of Strikeforce earlier this month. The former DREAM and Strikeforce light heavyweight champion currently rides on a three-fight win streak, with his only hiccup being a controversial draw against Keith Jardine in April of 2011. Most recently, Mousasi earned a first round submission win over Mike Kyle at Strikeforce: Marquardt vs Saffiedine.

Swedish fighter, Ilir Latifi gets the opportunity of a lifetime headlining a UFC event in his promotional debut. He’s won three consecutive fights in his career, including a unanimous decision victory over former King of the Cage light heavyweight champion, Tony Lopez at United Glory 15.
