Swedish BJJ coach Lars Wallin knows why Mousasi should worry.


Swedish BJJ instructor Lars Wallin about Gegard Mousasi's (33-3-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) replacement opponent, Ilir Latifi (7-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC). Gegard was originally scheduled to fight Alexander Gustafsson (15-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) at UFC on FUEL TV 9; but due to a cut suffered during training, the Swede was not cleared to fight by SMMAF. Wallin tells us about Latifi's credentials and skill set, and  what kind of challenges he'll present to "The Dreamcatcher". Plus about some of the other rising Swedish MMA stars and growth of the MMA in Scandinavia.?
