Lewis-Latifi Rumored For UFC 247

Derrick Lewis will get his chance to fight at home this February, as he’s rumored to be signed for UFC 247 on February 8th.

Per reports from ESPN and MMA Fighting, Lewis will face off with Ilir Latifi on the ESPN+ ppv card from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, as Lewis looks for his fifth win in six fights including wins over Francis Ngannou, a win over Blagoy Ivanov at UFC 244, and his star-making turn at UFC 229 as he knocked out Alexander Volkov as time expired.

Latifi will move up to heavyweight as he looks to rehab his career after two losses at light heavyweight.
