Sport Highlights! Pavlovich Smokes ‘Bam Bam’ In 54 Seconds
19-year-old asks court to let her watch father's execution
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A 19-year-old woman is asking a federal court to allow her to watch her father's death by injection, despite a Missouri law barring anyone under 21 from witnessing an execution. Kevin Johnson faces execution Nov. 29 for killing Kirkwood, Missouri, Police Officer William McEntee in 2005. Johnson's lawyers have appeals pending that seek to spare his life. Meanwhile, Johnson has requested that his daughter, Khorry Ramey, attend the execution, and she wants to be there. On Monday, the American Civil Liberties Union filed an emergency motion with a federal court in Kansas City.
SERGEI FINISHED TAI IN LESS THAN A MINUTE— ESPN MMA (@espnmma)
Sergei Pavlovich put his name in heavyweight contention earlier tonight (Sat., Dec. 3, 2022) at UFC Orlando live on ESPN/from inside Amway Center in Orlando, Fla., when the Russian knockout artist stopped veteran Tai Tuivasa with a blistering TKO (punches) just 54 seconds into the first round.
Both heavyweights threw caution to the wind and unloaded heavy leather in the early going. Tuivasa landed some solid shots of his own, but Pavlovich hit like a tank. The powerful Russian fighter stuck Tuivasa with a stiff jab and planted him on the canvas. Pavlovich moved in for the kill and bloodied “Bam Bam” with heavy punches until the referee stepped in for the stoppage.
Ukraine works to restore power after bruising Russian attack
KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — About 70% of the Ukrainian capital was left without power, Kyiv's mayor said Thursday, a day after Moscow unleashed yet another devastating missile and drone barrage on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure. Wednesday's renewed Russian attack on Ukrainian infrastructure caused power outages across large parts of the country, further hobbling Ukraine’s already battered power network and adding to the misery for civilians as temperatures plunge. The strikes also caused power outages in neighboring Moldova. © Provided by The Associated Press Two residents look at Ukrainian servicemen in Kherson area, southern Ukraine, Wednesday, Nov.

Pavlovich, 30, has now won his last five fights via first-round knockout. The surging heavyweight has only lost to Alistair Overeem in his professional career and looks closer than ever to getting his big paws on the upper echelon of the division.
This was an impressive one.
