Ilir Latifi stepped back into the Octagon today at UFC Fight Night 72 in Scotland with a rebound win. The Sledgehammer faced Hans Stringer on the preliminary card, and it was over quickly and in impressive fashion.

It just took 56 seconds for the Allstars Training Center fighter to stop Stringer, the much taller figher. The Allstars fighter comes in lunging with punches, looking to start with striking. And his strategy paid off as he landed a gig right hand standing and another as the bout went to the ground. “I’ve been working on my standup.” says Latifi, that now aims at a “top 10.”

“It feels good, coming back from my last fight, getting a finish and putting on a show for the fans. We’re fighting the top of the food chain, you know – the best fighters in the world so every fight is important. That’s a crazy crowd out there. I love fighting in the UK, I get good support here. I’ve fought here in Scotland and in London and the support is great so I would love to come back again.”

Latifi moves to 10 wins, 4 losses, and 1 no contest. He has 3 wins and 2 losses in the Octagon.
