Tough round to score... Pedro landed the better shots, but ilir with the 2 takedowns, didn't do much with it tho. Not sure who got that one Brad Tavares BradTavares September 10, 2017

My man Latifimma is a BEAST! #UFC215 #UFCEdmonton Charles Rosa CharlesRosaMMA September 10, 2017

Strong performance for Latifi. Pedro has a lot of potential though. Especially for someone with only seven fights. #UFC215 Dan Hardy danhardymma September 10, 2017
