The brand new UFC Vegas 71 poster highlights Sergei Pavlovich and Curtis Blaydes

The UFC has unveiled the poster for their upcoming event, UFC Vegas 71, which will feature a potentially explosive No. 1 contender’s bout between UFC Vegas 71contenders, Sergei Pavlovich and Curtis Blaydes. The event is scheduled to take place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas on April 22, with the main event fight set to take center stage.

Both fighters have been on impressive win streaks, with Blaydes emerging victorious in three straight fights, including wins against Tom Aspinall and Chris Daukaus. His only loss came against Derrick Lewis in 2021. On the other hand, Pavlovich has remained unbeaten since suffering a loss to Alistair Overeem in his first-ever UFC fight. He has won all of his last five bouts convincingly, with each victory coming via first-round knockout.

Given the high stakes involved, the winner of this fight could potentially go on to face the victor of a highly anticipated clash between Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic later this year, where the new heavyweight champion will be crowned. While the main event has been generating the most buzz, there are several other intriguing fights scheduled to take place on the undercard, including a bantamweight bout between Song Yadong and Ricky Simon, and the return of Bobby Green, who will take on Jared Gordon.
