It’s the UFC Fight Night Blaydes vs Aspinall fight card coming to London in the O2 Arena. This Saturday July 23, with the main card airing at 1:00 PM CDT.
This one features the big boys, when #4 ranked heavyweight Curtis Blaydes takes on #6 Tom Aspinall in the main event. Blaydes looks to make it three in a row with his impressive 2nd round knockout against Daukaus last March.
Aspinall has other plans however. This rising star has finished everyone of his last five opponents within the first round, with the exception of Arlovski who was submitted in the second round. This fight should have serious title implications for the current champion Francis Ngannou.
The co-main event will be #8 middleweight, Jack Hermansson vs #9 Chris Curtis. Hermansson will look to move forward in the rankings after suffering a split decision loss vs Strickland this February.
Meanwhile, Chris Curtis looks to continue his win streak and show off the heavy hands that have netted 2 of his last three wins by way of KO/TKO.
It looks like a pretty entertaining fight card the UFC is putting on for it’s London fans. Here’s a video from the UFC featuring top finishes from UFC London fighters. Check the rest of the card out below for the remaining UFC London card.
