There is no rest for the wicked. Richie Ivory (7-4) just recently secured his third straight KO finish - two of which were aired live on UFC Fight Pass - at BRACE 42 earlier this month but now has already gotten his next two assignments.
First up is a fight against Michael Tobin (11-0) at BRACE 44 on October 8th. This fight will be the main event and will also be fought at featherweight. A big opportunity to get a win over a fighter with an seemingly good record.
Then just a month later the Arklow man will compete against Darwin Sagurit (6-4) with the winner being crowned bantamweight champion at BRACE 45. Both fighters won their respective semi final fights at BRACE 42, Ivory defeating Ben Watson (2-1) via head kick KO and Sagurit defeating Byron Cowell (4-9) via TKO.
Both fights will be on UFC Fight Pass and should he defeat Tobin and Sagurit then that would boost his record to 9-4 and give him a major Australian title.
