Bulgaria’s finest MMA fighter Blagoy Ivanov is ranked at #8 in the new official UFC heavyweight ranking.
Ivanov was 9th until yesterday, but the absence of Cain Velasquez is putting “Baga” one spot ahead.
Velasquez has moved to the WWE and the former champ will no longer be part of Dana White’s roster. Meanwhile, the 8th place is Ivanov’s personal best since he made his UFC debut in 2018. The Bulgarian will be seen in action at UFC 244 in New York when he faces Derrick Lewis (#5).
At the number one spot is the former champ Daniel Cormier and right behind him is Francis Ngannou, followed by Curtis Blaydes and Junior dos Santos.
