Monikered as the "Man Who Beat Fedor", Blagoi Ivanov has an interesting set of tasks to deal with in the coming months. He'll make his MMA debut on August 2nd at Sengoku IX against former PRIDE fighter and pro-wrestler Kazuyuki Fujita after signing a three-fight deal with Sengoku, and he is also rumored as to potentially taking on Fedor Emelianenko's brother, Aleksander Emelianenko, in the new South Korean promotion Fighting Mixed Combative. In typical Japanese fashion, it seems that Ivanov is being thrown to the wolves quite early in his career, but there is a favorable chance that Ivanov could come out on top.
