On Saturday, July 14, the UFC hosted UFC Fight Night 133: Dos Santos vs. Ivanov from the CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho.
In the night’s main event, former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos took on Bulgarian newcomer Blagoy Ivanov. The 34-year-old Brazilian dos Santos was last in action at UFC 211 last May, falling via first-round knockout to then-champion Stipe Miocic. Ivanov, meanwhile, entered the promotion following stints with Bellator MMA and World Series of Fighting. The sambo specialist captured gold under the WSOF banner and his only career loss came against current UFC contender Alexander Volkov.
The action kicked off at 6:30 p.m. ET with three bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary-card bouts followed on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card taking place at 10 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
