Tai “Bam Bam” Tuivada takes on Sergey “Polar Bear” Spivak in this exciting heavyweight contest at the UFC 243 event.
This match-up will take place at the Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday night (October 5th). As usual BT Sport provide the live coverage for UK fight fans with live coverage from 1am.
From: Sydney, Australia
Fight History: Record (8-2-0) – After starting his UFC career with eight straight wins Tuivasa has then lost his last two fights to Junior Dos Santos in December 2018 and Biagoy Ivanov in June of this year.
From: Chisinau, Republic of Moldova
Fight History: Record (9-1-0) – Like Tuivasa, Sergey Spivak went on a winning run in his first nine UFC bouts albeit against some fairly modest opponents and comes here on the back of his first ever KO loss to Walt Harris in May.
Sergey Spivak makes a fairly quick comeback from that first round KO loss to Walt Harris and looks to be up against it against the big hitting Tai Tuivasa in front of his home crowd.
With regards to Tuivasa vs Spivak betting odds, the UFC bookmakers make Tuivasa the favourite to win this one at 1/4 (1.25) at Betway Sports with Spivak the underdog at 16/5 (4.20) with bet365*.
This could be a toe-to-toe battle with two big hitting heavyweights coming forward and looks likely to end in a KO win for the home fighter.
