He also holds notable wins over Andrei Semenov and Joe Riggs.
Fighter Trivia
He opened his own gym, Ivan Salaverry MMA, October 2005, in Seattle, Washington, where he lives with his wife and two sons. In what was believed at the time to be his last MMA fight, Salaverry took on Brazilian newcomer Rousimar Palhares at UFC 84 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 24, 2008, losing by Submission at 2:36 of Round 1. On 21 July 2012, he fought Fraser Opie for the Cage Contender Light Heavyweight title - coming in as a late replacement for former UFC fighter, Jeff Monson, who failed to make weight for the fight.
