For his next fight, Sergei Pavlovich will compete against Tom Aspinall at UFC 295: Prochazka vs. Pereira at Madison Square Garden, New York City on November 11, 2023. Pavlovich has amassed 18 wins with just 1 loss (18-1-0), placing second in UFC heavyweight rankings. In comparison, Tom Aspinall stands at 13 victories to 3 defeats (13-3-0) and is the 4th-ranked heavyweight in the organization. They will both compete for the coveted UFC Interim Heavyweight Title.

The main event originally scheduled for the evening was a UFC Heavyweight Championship fight featuring Jon Jones, the reigning champion and past two-time UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, against former champion Stipe Miocic. Unfortunately, the fight was pulled off on October 25, 2023, due to Jon Jones suffering a pectoral muscle strain that required surgery. In response to this, a new co-main event was announced for an interim championship for heavyweights. It will feature Sergei Pavlovich, who is ranked 2nd, facing off against fourth-ranked Tom Aspinall.

Sergei Pavlovich Last Fight

Sergei Pavlovich’s last fight was against Curtis Blaydes at UFC Vegas 71 inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas on April 22, 2023. Blaydes displayed agility early on, but Pavlovich's powerful hook got his attention. Blaydes retaliated with clean right hands, but a heavy jab from Pavlovich wobbled him and initiated the first takedown attempt, which was denied. Pavlovich continued to land powerful strikes, causing Blaydes to lose his legs.

Despite Blaydes' attempts to grapple and clinch, Pavlovich denied him and unleashed a flurry, ultimately sending Blaydes to the canvas with a couple of uppercuts. Pavlovich secured a first-round knockout, marking his sixth consecutive win and showcasing his defensive wrestling skills. This victory solidifies Pavlovich’s claim for a title shot in the UFC's Heavyweight division.
