About The Event

Back in action following a one-year hiatus, Dos Santos (18-5, fighting out of Salvador, Brazil) is gunning to get back in the title mix. The vicious KO artist has beaten some of the biggest names in the heavyweight division. He holds impressive victories over current champ Stipe Miocic, and former titleholders Cain Velasquez, Fabricio Werdum and Frank Mir. He now looks to reassert himself as a heavyweight threat.

A champion outside the UFC, Ivanov (16-1, fighting out of Sofia, Bulgaria) aims to make a statement in his anticipated debut. In 2008, he captured the World Sambo championship, which included a win against Fedor Emelianenko. During his MMA career, Ivanov has netted victories over former UFC champ Ricco Rodriguez, Lavar Johnson and Shawn Jordan. A win over Dos Santos will immediately thrust him into the UFC title picture.
