Champ Blagoy Ivanov vs. Shawn Jordan slated for WSOF 35 on Feb. 25


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.
