The Rebirth of a Legend: Igor Vovchanchyn Set to Return in September

172_l_medium

After nearly a four-year hiatus, Igor "Ice Cold" Vovchanchyn, a pioneer and legend of the sport, has decided to step back into the ring. Fighting Mixed Combative has announced that Igor will be featured in the promotion's second event in September (their first event is scheduled for Aug. 15th.) The card is also rumored to showcase the much anticipated debut of Blagio "Fedor Killer" Alexandre Ivanov against the brother of the man whom he defeated in Combat Sambo, Aleksander Emelianenko.

Ivan Emelianenko, Jan Nortje, Julia Berezikova, and Mikhail Malyutin are also rumored to be on the September card.

Vovchanchyn, best known for being one of the few strikers to find success in an era of MMA where grappling was exploding onto the scene, sports a 49 - 10 - 1 (1 NC) record, with 26 wins coming by way of TKO. It will be the Ukranian's first fight since 2005, when he was forced to retire due to repeated injuries.

While there has yet to be any word on who Igor's opponent will be for the September card, one cannot help but anticipate the return of a legend and hope that he has recovered from the injuries that have plagued him in the past.
