Drake Riggs - April 17, 2018
Everyone loves a good heavyweight and that’s something that the UFC has lacked several of in terms of divisional depth in the recent years. However, there has been an influx of new fresh talent from around the world rising to the top. As the rankings currently stand, throughout the entire top 16 ranked fighters(including the champion), only four are Americans. But in the coming months, we could very well see that knocked down to three as the Bulgarian WSOF/PFL heavyweight champion, Blagoy Ivanov looks to be making his jump to the big show soon, reports Ryan Thomas.
