The heavyweight title will be on the line next month at WSOF 35.

During Saturday’s WSOF 34 broadcast, officials confirmed an upcoming title fight between reigning champion Blagoy Ivanov (14-1) and challenger Shawn Jordan (19-7).

WSOF 35 takes place Feb. 25. A host city and venue aren’t set for the card, which airs on NBCSN following prelims on MMAjunkie.

Ivanov, a 30-year-old Bulgarian fighter, looks for his fourth straight victory and fourth consecutive title defense. After leaving Bellator and eventually joining WSOF, Ivanov won the title with a submission victory over Smealinho Rama. He’s since posted title defenses over Derrick Mehmen TKO) and Josh Copeland (decision).

He now meets Jordan, a former UFC fighter who’s on a 4-1 run. The 32-year-old became a free agent and left the UFC after a 3-1 run that included a pair of “Performance of the Night” bonuses. After signing with WSOF, he scored a TKO victory over Ashley Gooch in his promotional debut.

Additional WSOF 35 bouts will be announced in the coming weeks.
