Sergei Pavlovich was looking for his first Octagon win today at UFC St. Petersburg, and the Russian heavyweight needed less than two minutes to put away Marcelo Golm.

Both heavyweights came out winging big shots, but Pavlovich did a better job slipping the punches. Moments later, Pavlovich stunned Golm with a right hook and then sent him to the deck with a booming uppercut.

It was a huge rebound performance for Pavlovich, after dropping his UFC debut to Alistair Overeem in November.
