18 wins, 1 loss, 6 consecutive KOs Pavlovic ‘Aren’t you going to give me a title challenge?’
“Can’t you give me a title shot?” On the 23rd, UFC heavyweight No. 3 Sergei Pavlovic (30, Russia) said this after winning a KO victory in just one round in a confrontation with Curtis Blaze (32, USA), No. 4 heavyweight, held at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, USA.
It was such a crazy offensive that the word ‘this time again’ came out.
Pavlovic struggled against Blaze’s right hand counter in the beginning, but turned the tide by getting a knockdown with an overhand hook. After that, the game was finished with a simple jab first hit, followed by a ‘finish’.
The match for 3rd and 4th place ended in just one round.
Pavlovic got his 6th consecutive 1st round KO (TKO) with this match. This is a first in UFC history. The record of former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell (53, USA) winning 7 consecutive KOs (TKO) is also in front of our eyes. In particular, the point to watch is whether he can maintain his ‘1st round’ KO victory.
It took only 12 minutes and 17 seconds for Pavlovic’s six-game winning streak. The average per game is 2 minutes and 3 seconds.
“To be honest, I was preparing to do the whole five rounds,” Pavlovic said at the post-fight press conference, “but when I realized I had done damage to the Blaze, I didn’t think I had to go on that long.”
Pavlovic, who overpowered Blaze, the strongest player under his feet, who challenged himself, who was ranked third in the heavyweight rankings, is waiting for the winner of the heavyweight title fight between UFC heavyweight champion John Jones (35, USA) and former champion Stipe Miocic (40, USA) to take place in the second half of this year. declared that he would 메이저놀이터
He said, “All I want is a championship belt. I want to get this belt because it’s a dream since I was young.”
With this victory, Pavlovic recorded a total of 18 wins and 1 loss (UFC 6 wins and 1 loss).
Heavyweight No. 1 Cyril Gan (33, France) lost to Jones at UFC 285 last March, so Pavlovic, who beat No. 4 Blaze, is likely to get his next title shot.
