The UFC makes its debut in Boise, Idaho with UFC Fight Night 133, a card that seems to be flying under the radar. In the main event, we will see the return of the former heavyweight champion, Junior Dos Santos. He will take on former WSOF heavyweight champion who will make his octagon debut tonight, Blagoy Ivanov.
Dos Santos hasn’t fought since UFC 211 last year when he challenged Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight title. He lost by knockout in the first round and was later suspended by USADA for a failed drug test. His opponent, Ivanov, last fought under the WSOF banner when he took on Caio Alencar, winning by unanimous decision for his fifth straight victory.
In the co-main event, we will see the return of ‘Super’ Sage Northcutt as he looks for his first win at 170 pounds. But it will be a tough test as he takes on Zak Ottow. Northcutt has gone 0-2 at welterweight during his time in the UFC, losing to Bryan Barberena and Mickey Gall. His most recent outing came at lightweight when he took on Thibault Gouti at UFC Fight Night 126. He won that night by unanimous decision. Ottow has gone 3-2 since joining the UFC. His most recent fight came against Mike Pyle at UFC 222 where he was victorious by way of first-round TKO.
