Moldovan fighter Sergei Spivak, who rose to seventh in the UFC heavyweight rankings after an early victory over Derrick Lewis, assessed the likelihood that he will have to share the octagon with Russians Alexander Volkov and Sergey Pavlovich, who occupy eighth and third positions in the division, respectively.
“Of course, I don’t want to fight with the Russians, especially since I trained with these guys and maintain good relations,” said Polar Bear in an interview with the channel “Ushatayka”. “I don’t know how it will be. Let’s see. If you have to, then you have to. And there the UFC will determine who I fight with – nothing depends on me. ”
According to Spivak, Pavlovich has every chance to become the UFC heavyweight champion in the near future.
“Serge is young, and now is the time when he must show himself. He has all the prerequisites to become UFC heavyweight champion in the near future.”
