Lewis is a two-time heavyweight title challenger and the most decorated knockout artist in UFC history, holding the record with 13 knockouts. Currently ranked No. 5 in the MMA Fighting Global Rankings, Lewis has been on a bit slide lately, losing two of his previous three fights, and getting stopped in both outings. Lewis looks to maintain his position as a bona fide title threat with a win over Pavlovich.
Pavlovich is one of the rarest things in MMA: A heavyweight prospect. Only 30 years old and with a stellar 15-1 professional record, Pavlovich is currently riding a three-fight win streak, all by first-round KO. Pavlovich looks to keep that streak alive and announce himself as a serious contender with a win over the well-regarded Lewis.
