April 20, 2019
Golm lost to Sergey Pavlovich via TKO (punches) at 1:06 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Saint Petersburg.
ANALYSIS
Golm's UFC run started off with a quick knockout, but it has all been downhill from there. He has now lost three-straight fights in the UFC. He came out looking to counter in this fight, but Pavlovich changed it up and started throwing with combinations. From there it was only a matter of time until he tasted the canvass. In the end, Golm lasted only a little more than a minute and falls to 1-3 in the UFC and 6-3 overall.

Golm lost to Tim Johnson via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Belem, Brazil
ANALYSIS
Golm looked impressive in his first UFC fight against Christian Colombo. However, he struggled to stay out of the clinch in this fight. Johnson was able to push forward at will and hold this fight in the clinch. Golm did do some solid work at distance, but those opportunities were scarce in this fight. He will need to improve his grappling in order to compete at this level. He falls to 6-1 overall and 1-1 in the UFC.

ANALYSIS
Golm will be making his second appearance in the UFC after winning his debut against Christian Colombo in October. The heavyweight was able to claim a victory via submission (rear-naked choke) in a fight that also occurred in Brazil, which brought his career record to a perfect 6-0.

Johnson is coming off a loss to Junior Albini in July, and is 3-3 during his two-year career in the promotion.
Destroys Christian Colombo in UFC debut
HeavyweightUFC
October 28, 2017
Golm won his UFC debut on Saturday, defeating Christian Colombo via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:08 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
ANALYSIS
Easy work. Looking completely comfortable in his first fight with the company, the 25-year-old Brazilian easily battered an overmatched Colombo on the feet before forcing him to the mat and clamping on the RNC that ended the contest. It must be pointed out that Golm was facing an opponent who is highly likely to find himself either unemployed or retired in the very near future, but he couldn't have looked any better on short notice in a big spot.
