Alistair Overeem has had to face rising heavyweights in his last two outings, and the decorated fighter will do so again, this Saturday at UFC Beijing.
That’s because Overeem is scheduled to battle one of Russia’s top prospects, Sergei Pavlovich, who has gone 12-0 to date in pro-MMA. In Overeem’s last two outings he’s taken on Curtis Blaydes and Francis Ngannou, and the Dutch star was stopped in both.
You can watch Overeem preview Saturday’s scrap below.
Prior to his bouts with Blaydes and Ngannou, Overeem earned a decision win over Fabricio Werdum in July, 2017.
