UFC London: Blaydes vs. Aspinall Fight Card, How to Watch

Tom Aspinall will have his most important fight to date in the UFC against Curtis Blaydes.

Aspinall has quickly become a potential UFC Heavyweight Championship contender since joining the company in 2020. He’s won five fights in the UFC and finished all opponents.

His last win was against Alexander Volkov by submission at the previous UFC London on Mar. 19. Ranked sixth in the heavyweight division, Aspinall has the chance to get into the top five if he defeats Blaydes.

Blaydes is looking to stop the momentum of Aspinall and prove that he should be the next title challenger. The UFC veteran is fourth in the division and is on a two-fight win streak. He impressed fans with his striking in his last win against Chris Daukaus by knockout at UFC Columbus on Mar. 26.

He’s always been in the mix to fight for the UFC Heavyweight Championship but has yet to have the opportunity. However, a win over Aspinall gives Blaydes a solid case to move one step closer to challenging for the title.
