Blagoi Ivanov (Sherdog)

Bellator heavyweight Blagoi Ivanov is reportedly on artificial life support after being stabbed in Sofia, Bulgaria over the weekend. Reports say he was attacked by a group of men with bats. Bellator doesn't have all of the details from the incident yet, but they are asking for prayers. From MMA Junkie:

"Right now, we do not have all of the details, but our thoughts and prayers are with Blagoi and his family," Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said.

Ivanov beat Zak Jensen and William Penn in 2011 Bellator bouts that earned him a shot in their heavyweight tournament, but he had to withdraw due to an injury. His most recent fight was a TKO of Ricco Rodriguez on Christmas Eve.
