Ilir Latifi will get to welcome UFC newcomer Chris Dempsey to the cage at UFC Fight Night 46. Dempsey got the call to replace an injured Tom Lawlor and accepted the bout earlier today.
Latifi is coming off a submission win over Cyrille Diabate in March after losing his promotional debut to Gegard Mousasi.
Dempsey on the other hand will be riding an 8-fight win streak into the bout, and will look to make a statement against Latifi.
