Overeem (43-17-1NC) is coming off of back-to-back losses against Francis Ngannou and Curtis Blaydes, most recently losing to Blaydes via third-round TKO at UFC 225 in June. He holds notable victories over the likes of Vitor Belfort (x2), Mark Hunt, Fabrício Werdum (x2), Brock Lesnar, Frank Mir, Junior dos Santos, and Andrei Arlovski in an MMA career that spans all the way back to 1999.

Pavlovich (12-0) is coming off of a first-round TKO win over Kirill Sidelnikov in November of last year. He’ll be making his UFC Octagon debut when he takes on Overeem.
