The upcoming UFC Fight Night event is set to feature a heavyweight battle between Sergei Pavlovich and Curtis Blaydes. The event is scheduled for Sunday, April 23, and will take place at the UFC Apex LVM in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sergei Pavlovich will enter the Octagon with a professional record of 14-1, with his only loss coming to Alistair Overeem in his UFC debut in 2018. Pavlovich has since rebounded with back-to-back knockout victories over Marcelo Golm and Maurice Green. The Russian fighter is known for his heavy hands and knockout power, with 11 of his 14 career victories coming via TKO or KO.


On the other side of the cage will be Curtis Blaydes, who boasts a professional record of 14-3, with his three losses all coming at the hands of top-ranked heavyweights Francis Ngannou and Derrick Lewis. Blaydes is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Alexander Volkov in his last outing, which marked his third win in his last four fights. The American wrestler is known for his dominant ground game, with eight of his 14 career victories coming via ground-and-pound.

This matchup will likely come down to whether Pavlovich can keep the fight on the feet and land his heavy shots, or if Blaydes can take the fight to the mat and control the Russian fighter from top position. Both fighters have shown their ability to finish fights, so fans of heavyweight action can expect a thrilling bout.

This UFC Fight Night event will also feature other notable matchups, including a light heavyweight tilt between Anthony Smith and Jimmy Crute, as well as a welterweight bout between Alex Oliveira and Randy Brown. All fights will be broadcasted live on ESPN+ for fans tuning in from home.
