    The UFC announced on Thursday in a statement that popular Swedish light heavyweight Ilir Latifi has suffered an injury that will render him unable to compete against ex-title challenger Volkan Oezdemir.

    “Due to a back injury, Ilir Latifi has been forced to withdraw from his Saturday UFC Fight Night bout against Volkan Oezdemir,” the statement read.

    “The bout will not be replaced, and the card at Stockholm’s Ericsson Globe will proceed with 12 bouts.”

    Latifi hasn’t fought since a decision loss to Corey Anderson at UFC 232. Oezdemir is in must-win territory given he’s lost three straight, including a close defeat to Dominick…

    Unfortunate. I was moderately interested in this fight.
