Derrick Lewis Vs. Sergei Pavlovich On The Cards For UFC 277
There are rumors about Derrick Lewis (26-9-0) going one-on-one against Sergei Pavlovich (14-1-0) on July 30.
ESPN was the first to break this news. The event, which is expected to be UFC 277, is yet to have a location or a venue. This card may also include a middleweight encounter between Sean Strickland and Alex Pereira.
The last time Lewis had an octagon appearance was in UFC 271, where he succumbed to Tai Tuivasa in a second-round loss at Houston Texas.
Lewis came up short against Daniel Cormier in UFC 230 before finishing second-best against Ciryl Gane for the interim strap at UFC 265.
Despite the losses, the American has secured massive wins against the likes of Curtis Blaydes, Alexey Oleynik, and Alexander Volkov respectively.
If we talk about Pavlovich, he has all the momentum in the world.
The 29-year-old has secured three consecutive wins in the Octagon before losing against Alistair Overeem in his maiden promotional fight at UFC Fight Night 141.
After this defeat, the Russian secured first-round victories against Marcelo Golm, Maurice Greene, and Shamil Abdurakhimov.
On the other hand, “The Black Beast” is the most decorated fighter in UFC when it comes to amassing knockout wins (13).
