Sergei Pavlovich Analysis


Sergei Pavlovich enters the octagon as an intimidating force, known for his impressive striking abilities that allow him to dispatch opponents quickly. Averaging 8.21 significant strikes per minute with an accuracy rate of 48% makes Sergei a formidable opponent; recent fights, where he quickly dispatched opponents quickly demonstrate this ability while his striking defense, which allowed 4.61 strikes per minute at an absorbency rate of 55% shows vulnerabilities skilled strikers could exploit. Pavlovich relies heavily on his powerful, aggressive offense to avoid prolonged battles that expose his limited ground game and risk.


Pavlovich may be known for his striking prowess, but his grappling stats remain virtually non-existent: takedown average per 15 minutes is zero with zero accuracy; this gap in his skillset might prove particularly troubling when facing opponents with robust grappling backgrounds – as shown by his loss to Aspinall where his superior grappling and pace control ultimately lead to Pavlovich’s defeat. Volkov has more tools at his disposal; to stay standing and control strikes during exchanges is key against him; Pavlovich must utilize reach and power wisely so as not go down in fight.


Alexander “DRAGO” Volkov Analysis


Alexander Volkov, better known by his nickname DRAGO, boasts experience and a well-balanced skill set that could give him an advantage against Pavlovich, due to their height. Volkov stands 6’7″, giving him enough distance between themselves and opponents while effectively managing space despite having a shorter reach of 80 inches. Volkov’s striking accuracy of 57% as well as being able to absorb less strikes per minute (3.00) than Pavlovich demonstrate both tactical precision and defensive capabilities – evidenced in Volkov’s recent victory against Tuivasa as proof. 


Volkov will bring to this match not only his impressive striking skills, but also a formidable grappling ability. Averaging 0.49 takedowns every 15 minutes with an accuracy rate of 63% he has the power to alter the dynamics of any fight that goes to ground. Although not primarily known for grappling, his ability to incorporate takedowns into his strategy could keep Pavlovich off balance and aware of sudden level shifts. Volkov’s takedown defense rate of 73% nearly matches Pavlovich, suggesting that while he may not initiate many takedown attempts himself, he has the capability to defend them effectively. For Volkov, employing grappling strategies against Pavlovich may prove pivotal to winning this heavyweight encounter.
