Presumably White is referring to Ilir “The Sledgehammer” Latifi, although sources could not confirm or deny whether the UFC had reached out to American actress Queen Latifah at this time.
Latifi has a 7-2 record with wins over WEC veteran Jorge Oliviera and KOTC mainstay Tony Lopez, and a loss against Bellator’s Emmanuel Newton.
It is unknown whether or not this fight will continue to be the main event of the card. More details as they become available.
