The UFC has another gala behind it and fans may very well know the name of the next heavyweight title challenger. That’s because Sergei Pavlovich, who has already caused quite a stir before his fight, has asked for a chance.
The UFC star made an unprecedented splash over the weekend. Even if she didn’t touch alcohol. In fact, Sergei Pavlovich, who was in the organization’s unranked tournament in the main event of the evening, tried what Las Vegas is famous for before his duel.
The Russian puncher went to a casino and tried the slot machines before his match with Curtis Blaydes. A video of him playing went viral on social media and fans had a lot of fun.
But did it affect Pavlovich’s performance in any way? No, it didn’t. He showed incredible form once again, winning his sixth match in a row. To make matters worse, it was his sixth KO/TKO in the first round in a row, a new record in the UFC heavyweight division.
The 30-year-old Russian now boasts an 18-1 record. His only loss came in his first fight in the UFC when he was stopped in the first round by the legendary Alistair Overeem.
Pavlovich has won 15 of his fights by KO/TKO. He’s only won on points three times. A phenomenal feat. No wonder he’s being talked about as the next title challenger. He could be an interesting test for Jon Jones.
And what was that thing about playing the slots, anyway? Pavlovich answered that at the press conference and his expression was absolutely brilliant when asked the question and amused everyone present.
“To be honest, I’ve never gambled, I’ve never played any of those things. But my friend was ecstatic about it, he gave me a hundred bucks and told me to give it a try and that he’d see how I felt. Someone then videotaped it and that was that,” Pavlovich says.
Although the Russian lost on the slots, his performance earned him a bonus of $50,000, so he certainly doesn’t have to regret losing a hundred bucks.
