To be honest, my first thought is.... who is Ivan Salaverry!?!?

I'm sure I know his name from some ufc undercard fights but don't know much about him.

If anyone can enlighten me I'd be much obliged

12-4, 4 time UFC vet, defeated andei semenov (TKO, UFC 37), tony fryklund (sub, UFC 50), and joe riggs (sub, UFC 52), and then was dropped by the UFC after a snooze-fest of a fight with nate marquardt in which he lost the decision.. fought for the WFA after that, got his contract bought again by zuffa.. and now he is back

hes pretty unorthodox, but he is a good fighter.. trains with AMC pankration

I'm glad Salaverry is back! He was in such a good rythm until that fight with Nate. I still remember the great TKO he got on Riggs... Ivan laying on his back, Riggs dives in, Ivan's foot says hello to Riggs face

salaverry is a good fight and i think he puts on a good fight every time he is in the ring, good stand up and good submissions

He caught him a triangle after the boot to the face too. Talk about slick. Im exicted to see Salaverry back in the UFC (via WFA contract). he is a great ground figher. Who has only lost to the best. Just look at his losses:
Matt Lindland by decision
Nate Marqard by decision
Rene Rooz by TKO (broken finger) Rooze is 6'5'' and 230
Akira Gono early in his carrer by a spinning back kick.

Nice to see Ivan back in the UFC. It's gonna be an exciting fight but I'm picking Ivan by sub.

btw. loved how he messed up Fryklunds back.

UFC 71 is going to be bad ass. honestly i dont know if ivan can take martin, this should be a great fight, but martin might end up with the KO.

Ivan is a crazy fighter, trains with a great team (AMC Pankration I believe)
and has some big wins. Can't wait to see him again.

I think salaverry has had some good fights, but I dont see him winning this one, i believe Martin is stronger , he has better standup skills and good submission defense. Martin TKO.

Nevertheless, Salaverry deserves this shot in the UFC, he always puts a good fight, good for him.

I think Salaverry was in line for a title shot if beat Marquardt. The snooze fest ruined it, although I think they actually overreacted by cutting him at the time. Still, a boring televised main event didn't help. I think if he goes back to being the guy before that fight he will be a contender soon.

I think this is going to make for a great match up. A strong powerful puncher with unorthadox Salavery. One of my favorit finishes is when Salavery put the body triangle on Tony Fryykud. At that time that was one of most amazing submissions I've ever seen. I still do think it's up there.

That was sick shit. He turned a Fig 4 body lock into a submission. Tony looked like he was near crying from it. Salaverry has some sick subs.

Who is Adam Ryan? He is not listed in any of Ivans fight records. No is he listed on the Sherdog fightfinder .

It will be great to see Salaverry back in the octagon. Look out Middleweight
division.

Glad Ivans back. I don't think he should ever have been let go. He'll destroy Martin.
