It was just this past Saturday, July 22nd at the UFC Fight Night 224 heavyweight main event where Tom Aspinall (13-3 MMA) defeated Marcin Tybura (24-8 MMA) via way of knockout at 1:13 of round 1 in the O2 Arena in London, England.

‘Tybur’ had won two in a row before his defeat this past weekend, the 37-year-old scored decision victories over Blagoy Ivanov (19-6 MMA) this past February and Alexander Romanov (17-2 MMA) in August of 2022.

Aspinall, 30, was looking to get back in the win column after his latest loss to Curtis Blaydes (17-4 MMA) in July of 2022.  It was during that loss that Aspinall suffered a devastating knee injury which kept him out of the cage for almost a year. And get in the win column he did, with a 73-second TKO over Marcin Tybura in front of his home crowd, last Saturday night.

At the post-fight press conference, Aspinall called out no other than Jon Jones (27-1 MMA) saying:

“Jon Jones knows I exist. Woo-hoo! That’s a win itself. I’m buzzing with that. What I want to do, and I’ve been saying it all week, is: I want to win my fights going forward, of course. But also, another goal of mine is I want to motivate Jon Jones to stick around and fight me. That is my absolute dream.”

Bones‘ is slated for his first title defence against Stipe Miocic (20-4 MMA) at the UFC 295 headliner on Saturday, November 11th in Madison Square Garden, New York.

As for Marcin Tybura, following his loss, he took to ‘Instagram’ posting:

“The adventure continues, see you next time. Thank you for your support 🙏🏻 #teamTYBURA”

As for what is next for ‘Tybur’, it doesn’t sound like he’s contemplating retirement but rather looking forward to his next bout in the Octagon.
