Broke up UFC battles of Singapore.
Sergei Pavlovich is not particularly known outside of Russia, but the UFC has big plans for him. Otherwise, they would not have thrown it near Overeem in the debut battle, which took place about a year ago.
Then the Russian lost without any special options, but his potential from this did not become less. In April of this year in St. Petersburg, he spectacularly and triumphantly returned in a fight with the Brazilian Marcelo Golm and now had his third fight in the UFC. Opponent – American Maurice Green with eight wins and three losses in his career.
Alleseuropa news reports that It was clear that Pavlovich was not just a favorite, but the absolute master of this battle. If he does his job competently, he will pick up victory without any problems. In an interview a few days before the fight, he said that he did not experience unrest. Someone will object that this is not a good sign, but if Sergey is absolutely calm before the fight and wins, then this option is suitable for him.
The duel with Green went with the full advantage of the Russian, he did not give the opponent anything to do and two minutes after the start of the gong he carried out such an attack that it seemed little. The key to success is the pressure created by the punches, mainly from the side. Boxing equipment helped Pavlovich to pinch the American to the net, and there to score him to a situation where the referee could no longer intervene.
Sergei Pavlovich (14-1) solidifies his top-15 heavyweight standing, shellacking the gargantuan Maurice Greene for a quick and voluminous TKO! The former Fight Nights champ has finished 11, each via first-round knockout.
Alleseuroipa news reports that the second consecutive knockout victory for the 27-year-old Russian is an excellent career continuation in the UFC. He will gain a foothold in the top 15 heavyweights rating of the main league of the world, and perhaps at the beginning of next year will hold some more significant fight. Alexander Volkov remains the number one Russian heavyweight, but Pavlovich goes on to seize the status of the second from Oleynik. Perhaps even this has already happened.
Overrated Ben Askren @UFC battles of Singapore..
In the main battle of the tournament in Singapore, Ben Askren and Demien Maya met . The first surname is known many times better: Axren was the champion of Bellator, defeated Andrei Koreshkov and other notable guys, but things are not going well in the UFC. If not tougher. There was a knockout defeat in five seconds from Jorge Masvydalya, and now a new sad story.
Maya is far from the most star welterweight in the world. This is a Brazilian veteran with 27 wins and 9 losses. A strong fighter with excellent jiu-jitsu, a typical Brazilian of high class, but whom a person with self-conceit of Askren must pass . It turned out differently: Maya showed that at 41 you can not only be in great shape, but also choke the stars. Considering that Askren was the champion not only of Bellator, but also of One FC, doubts arise about the real level of these promotions.
