Junior dos Santos spoiled the welcome party for World Series of Fighting’s final heavyweight champion.
Returning from a 14-month layoff, “Cigano” outclassed Octagon newcomer Blagoy Ivanov to handily win a unanimous decision Saturday night in the main event of UFC Boise. Dos Santos’ performance capped off a busy evening that also saw Sage Northcutt pick up his first welterweight win, Niko Price score a must-see knockout over Randy Brown, and longtime featherweight contender Chad Mendes announce his return to the Octagon with a thunderous victory over Myles Jury.

That was a fun fight. I think Glenn did enough. Landed the more substantial shots in the second, though he gave up the tds. #UFCBoise— Matt Schnell (@DANGER_Caged) July 15, 2018
