Alistair Overeem will be fighting Sergey Pavlovich at UFC Fight Night 141 in Beijing, China.
Sergey Pavlovich enters this fight with an unbeaten professional MMA record of 12 wins and no losses. This will be the first time that Sergey Pavlovich will be fighting in the UFC and he enters the company with huge expectations considering his outstanding record. This will be the first time that Sergey Pavlovich will be fighting in 2018 with his last fight occurring in November 2017 where he beat his opponent via knockout. Sergey Pavlovich is a powerful puncher as he has won 75% of his fights via knockout. This clash is expected to be a huge challenge for Sergey Pavlovich as the Russian has never competed against an opponent with the skill and experience of Alistair Overeem.
Alistair Overeem is a very experienced fighter and he enters this contest with a record of 43 wins, 17 losses and 1 no contest. During this impressive career, Overeem has challenged for the UFC Heavyweight title and beaten the likes of Brock Lesnar and Junior dos Santos. Unfortunately for Alistair Overeem, recent records have not favored the fighter as he has now lost his last two fight which both ended via knockout. Overeem a well-rounded fighter and his biggest advantage will be his ability to wrestle on the mat. Overeem has won 17 times via submission and if he can takedown Sergey Pavlovich, he should be able to win. Considering his weight and height advantage over Sergey Pavlovich, I am expecting Alistair Overeem to take this fight to the mat with ease.
All in all, I am expecting Alistair Overeem to win this fight. Overeem is far more experienced and has more skills when compared to Sergey Pavlovich who is very one-dimensional. I am expecting Overeem to take this fight to the mat which will allow him to get his 44th win.
