Review: 2013-08-21, something good in the second part of the fight but the bout between Marat Gafurov and Yuri Ivlev was not particularly exciting: it gets two stars. Marat Gafurov ranked as the No.46 featherweight in the world, entered the fight with a record of 7-0-0 (71% finishing rate) while Yuri Ivlev had a record of 20-7-0 (85% finishing rate). Gafurov vs Ivlev is not valid anymore for the M-1 Challenge featherweight title because Ivlev didn’t make weight (1,5 kg more) – M-1 Challenge 41. Watch the video!
Event: M-1 Challenge 41
Where: St. Petersburg, Russia
Division: featherweight (145 lbs, 66 kg)
Gafurov’s next fight: Marat Gafurov vs Lee Morrison
