Artem Rofal: “Watching the fight between Pavlovich and Volkov will be quite unpleasant”

A representative of Alexander Shlemenko’s team, fighter Artem Rofal, in a conversation with , admitted that it would be unpleasant for him to watch the UFC fight between Russian heavyweights Sergei Pavlovich And Alexander Volkov .

Russians Pavlovich and Volkov will face each other at the UFC tournament in Saudi Arabia on June 22. Volkov (37-10) enters the UFC on a three-fight winning streak and ranks fifth in the heavyweight division. Pavlovich (18-2) lost early to Britain’s Tom Aspinall for the UFC interim belt in his last fight in November. Before that, Pavlovich’s streak in the UFC was six early first-round wins. The Russian occupies third place in the ranking.

— Stylistically, it’s an interesting matchup. But let’s take a closer look at the moral component of this fight: why should two Russians compete in the best league in the world at a time when the whole world is against us. So, fighting for the public’s pleasure is a dubious idea, at first glance. On the other hand, they are ambitious fighters with championship aspirations. Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic are seriously slowing down the heavyweight division with their fight. And about the fight between Volkov and Pavlovich… Watching their fight will be quite unpleasant – you don’t want any of them to get damaged. They have accepted this confrontation, so let the strongest win. On paper, I consider Sergei Pavlovich the favorite. Let’s see in the fight if Sasha can offer him something,” Rofal told .

The next UFC tournament will take place on June 22 in Saudi Arabia, headlined by a fight between Russian Ikram Aliskerov and Australian Robert Whittaker, and the co-main event will be a fight between Russian heavyweights Sergei Pavlovich and Alexander Volkov.
