Taking main event honors in the organization’s second outing to the UK this year; a heavyweight headliner featuring the #4 ranked contender, Curtis Blaydes, and the streaking hometown favorite, the #6 rated challenger, Tom Aspinall.
In the midst of a two-fight winning run, Blaydes most recently headlined a UFC Fight Night Columbus event earlier this year, defeating Chris Daukaus with an early second round knockout win. The victory came off the back of a prior decision success against Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
As for Team Kaobon staple, Aspinall, the Atherton native headlined UFC London back in March against Alexander Volkov — stopping the Russian and common-foe with a straightforward first round straight armbar win.
