Ivan Shtyrkov disqualified for two years!


The USADA leadership in a press release stated that in its March and April samples there were traces of anabolic steroid boldenone (a synthetic steroid that builds muscle mass).


Both samples taken from the fighter on March 27 and April 3 were positive. Ivan will not be able to perform in professional MMA in the United States and in American fighting organizations until March 27, 2021.
Shtyrkov signed a contract with the UFC, but did not conduct a single fight in the promotion. The parties terminated the contract by mutual agreement.


Recall that Shtyrkov signed a contract with RIZIN and on July 28 will fight against Hun Kim in Japan

Prediction Comments

Motoya vs. Ogikubo
Hiromasa Ogikubo, DEC
Winner of this fight needs to fight the winner of the co-main event. Whoever wins that fight should be Kyoji Horiguchi's next challenger from Rizin.

Ishiwatari vs. Sasaki
Shintaro Ishiwatari, DEC
Winner of this fight needs to fight the winner of the main event. Whoever wins that fight should be Kyoji Horiguchi's next challenger from Rizin.

Yachi vs. Asakura
Mikuru Asakura, TKO, R2
Mikuru Asakura should fight Roberto de Souza next, assuming they both win on this night.

de Souza vs. Hirota
Roberto de Souza, DEC
Roberto de Souza should completely dominate on the feet the whole time.

Kitaoka vs. Case
Johnny Case, TKO, R1
Case is another LW who should be resigned to the UFC. He's a seasoned striker & fun to watch.

Ham vs. Maesawa
Seo Hee Ham, TKO, R3
Another mismatch.

Kawajiri vs. Abdulkhalikov
Ali Abdulkhalikov, DEC
Kawajiri is nothing more than a gatekeeper anymore.

Shtyrkov vs. Kim
Ivan Shtyrkov, TKO, R2
Shtyrkov should have been in the UFC 4 years ago for crying out loud.

Miura vs. Egger
Stephanie Egger, TKO, R2
Miura's record is full of wins over no-name fighters & she's way too small for Egger anyway. Mismatch.
