He’s not worried about Volkov being left handed…
MMAjunkie Radio recently interviewed Blagoi Ivanov. He's set to face Alexander Volkov in the finals of the heavyweight tournament on the main PPV card of Bellator 120 on Saturrday, May 17. Below are some highlights.
Ivanov on fighting the left-handed Volkov: "He's left handed, and I changed up my training a little bit, so I'm ready for him. I'm ready for his wrestling skills and everything. I prepared with good wrestlers and jiu-jitsu guys here in the U.S. I'm ready to wrestle with him."
Ivanov on his training: "I train with left-handed guys, so I know how to move him and what to do with him. He's shorter than me, so I'm used to this. It will be better for me. That he's left-handed is no problem…I have a lot of different training partners in striking and boxing and wrestling. I have a lot of people who help me to prepare."
