UFC veteran Shawn Jordan will be battling World Series Of Fighting Heavyweight Champion Blagoy Ivanov for the gold this Saturday Night at the WSOF 35.
While he’s happy to be fighting for the gold, the heavyweight contender doesn’t like the inconsistent schedule as of late from the WSOF.
“In the UFC, I was fighting top-20 heavyweights every time,” Jordan told MMA Junkie Radio. “Very tough guys, and pretty consistent guys. It’s the same situation now. World Series is a great promotion. I don’t fight as much as I would like to, so it’s a lot harder financially than it was in the UFC.”
Jordan fought a total of ten times during his UFC tenure, while only competing once thus far in the WSOF. The UFC veteran also realizes that Ivanov brings a level of consistency to the cage.
“It’s just me competing with another athlete again,” he said. “Blagoy is a pretty consistent competitor.”
World Series Of Fighting 35 takes place on Saturday, March 18 from the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York with Blagoy Ivanov and Shawn Jordan headlining. Fightful will be providing live coverage of the event, which will be airing live on the NBC Sports Network.
