Russian heavyweight Sergei Pavlovich, who has been living in the United States for more than a year now, has answered a question about whether he is going to get American citizenship.
“No, I don’t see the point in a U.S. passport – except for some kind of visa for 30 years so I can travel in peace and not stress,” Pavlovich said in an interview Vadim Tikhomirov. “All the same, home is home, no matter who says what – it’s where you were born and brought up. When your horizons expand, you still realize that there is a place you are drawn to, and there is nothing you can do about it”
In less than 24 hours, the Russian will attempt to win the interim UFC heavyweight championship belt against Tom Aspinall, and after the fight with the Briton, he plans to return to Russia.
“Of course, I miss you a lot. I already want to take some Russian soil in my hand. I won’t make any predictions now, but I plan to go soon, when the fight is over. I already want to go home
The title fight between Sergey Pavlovich and Tom Aspinall will be the second major event of UFC 295, which will take place Saturday night at the famous Madison Square Garden Arena in New York City.
