WSOF 31 Fight Forecast

Flashback to Blagoy Ivanov’s win over Fedor Emelianenko.
Ivanov will always be remembered for his upset over Emelianenko in the semifinals of the 2008 Combat Sambo World Championships. Perhaps fate is at play with both competitors fighting this weekend. However, unlike Emelianenko, Invanov has been performing at his peak, rankings-wise at least. 

Jason High vs. Mike Ricci Ranking Points
High and Ricci are both skilled welterweights who have not been able to hold a spot in the UFC. The winner of this close match up will likely end up on Joe Silva's radar again.
