UFC heavyweights Tai Tuivasa and Sergei Pavlovich are set to collide later this year.
The UFC’a No.4 ranked heavyweight, Tuivasa and No.5 ranked Pavlovich fight to be added to the UFC Orlando card taking place at the Amway Center.
Tuivasa will aim to get back to wining ways following his TKO loss to Ciryl Gane earlier this year in Paris. ‘Bam Bam’ would drop Gane during the back-and-forth affair, presenting the Frenchman with trouble we have never seen him in before.
For his efforts Tuivasa would earn a Fight of The Night bonus, but the Australian will want to return to the run of form that saw him on a five-fight win streak, all finishes, finishing the likes of Derrick Lewis and Augusto Sakai.
As for Pavlovich, it has been smooth sailing for the Russian since his lone professional defeat to Alistair Overeem in 2018. The 30-year-old is on a four-fight finish streak, most recently having take out Derrick Lewis and Shamil Abdurakhimov.
