After a loss in a rematch to former former heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, Junior dos Santos was forced to the sideline for a year due to a problem with USADA. And after clearing his name, "Cigano" could come back to the winning column with a victory over former WSOFweight champion Blagoy Ivanov
What was the highest point in the match?
Nobody seemed interested in mixing things up and taking the battle to the ground. It was primarily a boxing exchange between the two with dose Santos dictating the pace for the most part. He could go Ivanov down and land his right hands as he was pleased with.
Ivanov had his moments with his clean superiors who left the Brazlian with a cross at the bridge, but his production fell sharply as soon as his fuel tank did in recent years.
Where are these two from here?
Ivanov's first three-year loss also marks his UFC debut, but he is still a formidable heavyweight contender. But because he can climb up in the lead, maybe he has to face a big enough name like Andrei Arlovski.
Watch it now, later or never?
It was a toe-to-competition where two former champions threw hands against each other to finish the UFC debut event in Boise, Idaho. You can look later.
