The UFC heads back to London, England on Saturday for UFC London.
In the main event, Curtis Blaydes takes on Tom Aspinall in a crucial heavyweight fight. It’s the second straight main event for Aspinall who submitted Alexander Volkov in the main event of UFC London in March. Blaydes, meanwhile, knocked out Chris Daukaus back in March after defeating Jairzinho Rozenstruik by decision to return to the win column after suffering a KO loss to Derrick Lewis.
The co-main event of UFC London sees Jack Hermansson take on short-notice replacement Chris Curtis. Hermansson was supposed to face Darren Till but the Brit was forced out of the bout due to an injury. ‘The Joker’ is coming off a split decision loss to Sean Strickland and is just 2-3 in his last five. Curtis, meanwhile, enters UFC London as he is 3-0 in the UFC and coming off a decision win over Rodolfo Vieira. He also holds KO wins over Brendan Allen and Phil Hawes.
