Sergei Pavlovich is expected to make his first appearance in over two years when facing Tanner Boser at UFC’s December 4th event. Aaron Bronsteter of TSN reported the heavyweight matchup first.
The fight will take place at a UFC card that doesn’t have a confirmed location at the moment.
Pavlovich has been out of the UFC cage since October 2019. He has been pulled from two bookings in that time due to various reasons.
Most recently, Pavlovich was stopped from competing against Tom Aspinall in September due to visa issues.
Boser is coming off a stoppage victory he scored against veteran Ovince St. Preux in June. That victory snapped a two-fight skid that had developed over the past year for him.
