Corey Anderson vs. Ilir Latifi set for year-end UFC 232 in Las Vegas

A light heavyweight bout is the latest addition to the UFC’s year-end card in “Sin City.”

Corey Anderson (11-4 MMA, 8-4 UFC) is set to take on Ilir Latifi (14-5 MMA, 7-3 UFC) at UFC 232 in December. UFC officials today made the fight official on the FS1 broadcast of “UFC Tonight.” The bout first was reported by Kimura.se.

UFC 232 takes place Dec. 29 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Anderson has won back-to-back fights on the heels of consecutive knockout losses to Jimi Manuwa and Ovince Saint-Preux in 2017. In April, he took a decision from Patrick Cummins. And in July, he outworked Glover Teixeira for a decision win at UFC Fight Night 134 in Germany.

Anderson won the Season 19 light heavyweight tournament on “The Ultimate Fighter” in 2014and won five of his first six fights in the promotion before a rough stretch of three losses in four fights before his current run.

Latifi has back-to-back wins, as well, and has won five of his past six overall. After a knockout loss to Ryan Bader in September 2016 snapped his three-fight winning streak, Latifi bounced back with a decision win over Tyson Pedro at UFC 2015 a year ago. And in February, he picked up a performance bonus for a submission win over Saint-Preux at UFC on FOX 28 in Florida.
