UFC free fight: Sergei Pavlovich steamrolls Derrick Lewis in 55 seconds

MMA news

It took Sergei Pavlovich less than a minute to make his mark in the UFC heavyweight division.

Looking to make it four straight, Pavlovich faced former title challenger Derrick Lewis this past July at UFC 277.

Pavlovich cracked Lewis with a few big rights, which had “The Black Beast” on shaky legs. Pavlovich unleashed a flurry of punches until Lewis hit the mat face down. Referee Dan Miragliotta jumped in, but as soon as the fight was waived off, Lewis made his way back up and protested the stoppage.

Pavlovich (16-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) returns to action Saturday when he takes on Tai Tuivasa (15-4 MMA, 8-4 UFC) on the main card of UFC on ESPN 42, which takes place at Amway Center in Orlando, Fla. The card airs on ESPN and streams on ESPN+.

Before he faces Tuivasa, relive Pavlovich’s finish of Lewis in the video above.
